Ariana Grande is a busy bee these days. She’s currently preoccupied with her Dangerous Woman tour, but she still has time to do other commitments and even time to spare for her fans on social media. Fresh from her tour stop in Tulsa, Oklahoma last Thursday, Grande is expected to attend the Grammy Awards 2017 this Sunday. Ahead of her possible appearance at the awards show however, the 23-year-old singer gave fans a behind-the-scenes look of her “Beauty and the Beast” recording with John Legend.

On Instagram, Grande uploaded the footage of how she and Legend collaborated to revive the theme song of the Disney animated film of the same name. In the clip, Grande is seen singing her verse inside the studio. Snippets of Legend recording his part is also shown in between flashes of scenes from the live action movie that stars Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as Beast.

“I think songs like ‘Beauty and the Beast’ are timeless. It’s a classic for a reason,” Legend says in the video clip. The “All of Me” crooner then admitted that this is the first time that he’s working with Grande. ”I’ve never worked with Ariana before, and I’m excited for us to be remaking a classic. It’s an iconic song, iconic film and, hopefully, will do it some justice.”

Meanwhile, Grande’s Dangerous Woman tour will resume on Valentine’s Day in Nashville, Tennessee. Since she’s currently busy preparing for her show there, she may not be attending this year’s Grammys. The young singer even hinted at her absence from the big event on Instagram when she shared a clip that highlights her nominations this year. “Thank you the recording academy for acknowledging our work last year! Best of luck and lots of love to everybody there tonight,” she captioned the clip.

Grande’s post alarmed Arianators who were hoping for the “Side to Side” singer to attend the ceremony and be there when she wins any awards. One fan asked: “Why aren’t you going? It’s literally your year.” Another wrote: “You need to be there and win.” Another fan commented: “I really hope you are going.”
