BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Ariana Grande returns to her acting roots with an appearance in Jim Carrey's series "Kidding."

The Grammy-winning singer with the big vocal range guests in season two of the Showtime series that returns on Nov. 3. And yes, she sings.

Carrey told a TV critics gathering on Friday that Grande was game to be silly and have fun. Carrey plays children's TV host Mr. Pickles who has a difficult family life off-screen.

Carrey joked that he's sure Grande was nervous singing with him. He calls Grande "a singular artist" whose vocal ability is like magic while he says he croaked out his performance.

In an Instagram post, Grande called it "the most special experience of my life." She said she's been a fan of Carrey since childhood.

Grande began her career as an actress, appearing on Broadway in the musical "13" and two Nickelodeon TV series.
