Lakewood High School is one of five finalists in the country in "Good Morning America" and Katy Perry's contest for a live concert.
The school received the news last week, and on Monday, Oct. 7, "GMA" was on hand to interview participants in the video. The school held a pep rally in the early morning on Tuesday, Oct. 8, to celebrate the move to finalists on the show.
If the school wins, it will play host to a free concert from Perry on Oct. 25. The school is hoping to turn the concert into a fundraising effort for people affected by the Colorado floods.
"The message here is the bigger thing," said principal Ron Castagna. "This generation is incredible, and they're doing so much for others."
Courtney Coddington, a senior at the school and student body president, said that all the attention the video has received has been amazing.
More than 520,000 people have watched the video on Vimeo, and 180,000 people have watched it on YouTube in the past two weeks.
"I'm really shocked and of course happy and blessed about all this," Coddington said. "I had no clue it would get this big, and really never imagined this would happen."
Judges will choose the winning entry. The entries will be judged on the basis of creativity, on-air appeal, "wow" factor, originality and feasibility of a live performance at the entrant's qualified school, according to ABC.
The winner of the lip dub contest will be notified Oct. 10.
