We’re still recovering from Channing Tatum‘s AH-mazing performance of Run The World (Girls) alongside Beyonc├â┬⌐.

But we have to admit, when we first heard about the A-lister’s cameo appearance on Lip Sync Battle, our initial thought was “HOW?!”

Well now, it looks like we’re finally getting an answer to that question!

Executive producer Casey Patterson explained that reaching out to Queen Bey for this show-stopping song wasn’t the first time the Spike show has given her a ring.

In fact, they’ve had to call her team in order to get legal approval to use her songs whenever a star requested to sing one.

The creative team knew they wanted her to eventually make an appearance, but wasn’t sure how to make it happen… until the Hail, Caesar hottie threw his hat in the ring.

Casey explained:

“He’s irresistible. He’s so talented. If he’s going to do the choreography, you know he’s going to nail it and it will be unbelievable. He was just so devoted to it. He was in it. He went method.”

In fact, she thinks the gorgeous guy was actually the one who sold the superstar on the idea, adding:

“We all gathered around and we pitched it to her but Channing jumped in and asked her personally. I think at some point he made a little video for her of his rehearsal just letting her know he was going to crush it.”

Wow! He wanted it BAD! LOL! But hey, it all worked out.

And now you know, Perezcious readers, that if you want to perform alongside music royalty, all you have to do is make a video! Or have Channing ask for you!
