One lucky group of high school students got to take an hour away from being studious to rock out to the the Band Perry in their school gym. Wilson Central High, just outside of Nashville, won a State Farm Contest and the prize was an hour long performance by the sibling trio.

Wilson Central won the safe-driving competition and got the news that they were the winners last fall — but Kelly Clarkson was scheduled to be the school’s prize. After news of Clarkson’s pregnancy broke, she had to cancel her performance but the Band Perry weren’t a bad replacement. Clarkson made an appearance of sorts when an announcement she made was played to the students prior to the show.

Roughly 1,800 students and teachers filled the gym for the show that was set up like a normal venue. The students voiced their opinions on Twitter and the hashtag #celebratemydrive quickly became a trending topic on the social media site.

Along with a rockin’ performance from the ‘Chainsaw’ singers, the school also won $100,000 along with the other top nine schools. The money can be used towards technology, upgrading their school, building sound systems and beautification but 10 percent must go towards safe-driving initiatives.
