The show choir from Rolling Meadows, the Leading Ladies, will serenade Lynch with their own version of Beyonce's song "End of Time," complete with lyrics referencing the actress' tough-talking character on the popular high school singing show.

"They all watch 'Glee' of course," said choir director Caitlyn Walsh. "They are so excited for the opportunity and to get to preform."

Walsh said she got a call from organizers of the award show last week and instantly jumped at the chance to be involved.

The show choir, made up of more than 20 female student singers as well as a rhythm instrumental section, already performed at a school assembly as practice and has two big competitions coming up, Walsh said.

Awards show producers said they'll make sure the students get a photo and a chance to introduce themselves to Lynch at the event, which takes place at Muvico Theaters in Rosemont, but Walsh said her students don't seem star-struck yet.

"Surprisingly they don't seem very nervous about it, they're just very excited," she said.
