Get excited, Gleeks! William McKinley’s new football coach has been told she will have a musical number in an upcoming episode!

Dot-Marie Jones, who plays Sue Sylvester’s new football coach rival, Shannon Beiste, on our favorite show Glee, tells us she’s going to be warming up her vocal chords in the next few weeks – and we couldn’t be more pleased!

“I have been told yes, I am [singing],” the 46-year-old actress told us exclusively at “Best in Drag” Show AIDS Fundraiser in Los Angeles Oct. 24.

Will it be in the upcoming Rocky Horror Picture Show episode? “No, I’m not in it! I wish, I’m so bummed,” she told us, adding, “I’m in the following one.”

Dot-Marie also dished about her best friends on the Glee set. “Jenna [Ushkowitz] and Kevin [McHale] [are my bffs],” she said, laughing, “I mean name em—they’re all great. I love it.”

And we love you, Dot-Marie! What song do YOU think, The Beiste should sing? Sound off below!
