Besides slaying the big screen in roles like Avengers’ Black Widow or Lucy’s leading heroine, actress Scarlett Johansson is hopping into the director’s seat for the next AMEX Unstaged show with Ellie Goulding next month, Billboard can exclusively reveal.

Aside from Hot 100 hits and fan favorites, expect material from Goulding's third album, Delirium, at the show -- the new album drops five days prior to the Nov. 11 concert in New York City. Last month, the British songstress teased her new project with her infectious track “On My Mind,” produced by pop heavyweight Max Martin. The single’s video already clocks in at 45 million views on YouTube and shows Goulding riding on a horse through a Las Vegas casino.

As for ScarJo’s directing duties, it’s no surprise that the actress wants to get behind the camera. In 2013, she said she would be helming the film version of Truman Capote’s novel, Summer Crossing, yet to be released.

To witness Johansson's vision and Goulding's set, fans can tune in via livestream at 8pm ET, followed by a 24-hour rebroadcast right here.
