Shania Twain transformed into a very sexy Mrs. Potts as she announced her starring role in the upcoming Beauty and the Beast special on ABC on Monday.

In a new photo, the Grammy Award-winning star, 57, sipped from a teacup while displaying her cleavage in a plunging hot pink blazer trouser suit, paired with matching slacks.

The star wore her platinum flecked brunette tresses in a voluminous half-updo as she prepared to film her scenes as the iconic teapot character – who was famously played by Angela Lansbury in the 1991 animated film.

The country music sensation paid tribute to the original Mrs. Potts as she shouted out Angela Lansbury.

‘And of course, I would be remiss if I didn’t pay tribute to the iconic Angela Lansbury, I mean she IS Mrs. Potts and the reason why this character is so beloved,’ she wrote.

Shania went on, ‘To follow in the footsteps of such an icon is a huge honor and I hope to do the part justice.’
