The BeyHive is buzzing as rumors of Beyoncé performing at the Country Music Association Awards surface. Will the Queen perform Lemonade (and country music) cut “Daddy Lessons”? According to PEOPLE, odds are she’ll make an appearance tonight – but not everyone is happy about it.

The site says multiple sources have confirmed Blue Ivy’s legend of a mom is in town for the big event. PEOPLE reports:

Multiple sources confirm to PEOPLE that Beyoncé is currently in Nashville, which just happens to be where the CMAs will be airing from live tonight on ABC, and CMT reports that the star is set to perform at the show.

Good Morning America also sent out this tweet:

But what will Bey perform? PEOPLE speculates there are a number of options for the queen:

A duet with one of the previously announced performers — of which there are many — is not out of the question. Or Queen Bey could do a solo performance of one of her originals. (Lemonade‘s country-twinged “Daddy Lessons”?) Or even a cover of a country classic.

Dixie Chicks are also trending, as multiple sites report they’re all set to open the show with Bey.

Somehow, not everyone is excited, however. Country music fans, especially, are on Twitter trippin’ at the idea of Beyoncé crossing music genre lines. Here are some unfortunate tweets:

Wow. Not everyone’s hating though:

Tune into ABC at 8 p.m. EST to watch the 2016 CMAs live tonight.
