Singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles has booked her first TV gig…on Nickelodeon.

Bareilles, who has been touring with Sugarland, will guest star on Nickelodeon’s new comedy series, Bucket & Skinner’s Epic Adventures, playing herself in an episode scheduled to air later this month titled “Epic Rockstar.” In the episode, Bareilles returns to her hometown of Pacific Bluffs to hold a songwriting contest, but trouble erupts after Bucket (Taylor Gray) realizes he accidentally submitted a love song about his secret crush, Kelly (Ashley Argota).

Bareilles says of her experience, “I had such an amazing time getting to join the cast and crew on Bucket and Skinner. Each and every person made me feel so incredibly welcomed and encouraged. I’m brand new to acting, so I appreciated feeling so supported, and those kids are absolutely awesome. I’m a little disappointed I didn’t get slimed…but maybe I’ll be back.” Check out a first look at her appearance below:
