Taylor Swift took to social media on Wednesday (Oct. 23) to share that she’ll be making a special appearance during BBC Children in Need’s upcoming Get It Covered documentary.

In a BBC clip retweeted by Swift, the star makes a surprise visit to the iconic Abbey Road Studios while British actor Shaun Dooley is recording a cover of her Speak Now album cut “Never Grow Up.” As Dooley lays down his vocals in the booth, Swift sneaks into the studio clad in a green sundress. “Can you do it a little bit more American?” the singer jokingly asks from behind the soundboard, leaving a shocked Dooley with his mouth agape.

The heartwarming documentary will air in the U.K. on Oct. 30 on BBC One and is set to feature a host of British celebrities including Olivia Colman, David Tennant and Yesterday’s Himesh Patel recording cover songs for a good cause: the Get It Covered charity benefit album for BBC Children in Need.
