First Look at H.E.R. and Josh Groban in “Beauty and the Beast: A 30th Celebration” has revealed exclusive clips of H.E.R. and Josh Groban starring as Belle and Beast in the upcoming ABC special, Beauty and the Beast: A 30th Celebration.

What’s Happening:

  • In the clip of H.E.R., fans first see the Enchanted Rose sitting on a table that's propping up an electric guitar trimmed in gold. As footsteps approach, the "Could've Been" singer struts into the dimly lit room while sporting a chic pantsuit in Belle's signature gold. She picks up the guitar and reveals a floor-length train draped from her jacket, evoking the Disney princess's iconic silhouette. She grabs the rose-printed guitar pick and plays the intro of the movie's titular song, singing the opening words: "Tale as old as time…"
  • For Groban’s promo clip, the 41-year-old "You Raise Me Up" singer enters and grabs The Beast's blue cape from a coat rack next to the Enchanted Rose, twirling it over his shoulders. He then picks up the Enchanted Mirror before continuing the lyrics: "Beauty and the Beast."
