“I feel like there should be a tumbleweed rolling by in the background,” Grande jokes before reaching out to hug Shelton.

She can also be seen hugging Kelly Clarkson and John Legend before filming the campfire promotion.

“We already had a handshake agreement, we’re gonna go at each other’s throats,” Shelton later tells the camera.
