Updated: Mix the promise of free stuff with the possibility of being on TV and you get …. Yeah, we know what you get.

You get this scene at UT, where staffers from Ellen Degeneres’ show were on hand to give out tickets to the Grammy Awards to students who donned the best Beyonce outfit.

Twitter asks: what’s happening? Hope these help you figure it out. UT is preparing for Ellen! pic.twitter.com/tQBerhhZco

Posted earlier: Ellen Degeneres says that if you dress up like Beyonce and head to the University of Texas campus, she just might help you get to the Grammy Awards. She tweeted this at 1:10 p.m. Central:

How fast can you pull together a Beyonce costume, @UTAustin? Meet you at the Main Mall at 3:30pm CST.

Hey @UTAustin! If you’ve ever wanted to go to the #Grammys, get your Beyonce costume together. Right now.

A crew from her show did a similar giveaway stunt last week at Georgia Tech, where they handed out Super Bowl tickets.

It didn’t take long for the UT stunt to have its desired effect.

Posted earlier: If you’re anywhere near the University of Texas campus Tuesday, keep your eyes peeled for a crew from “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”

The lovable host tweeted out a teaser of sorts Monday afternoon, indicating a visit was in the works.

The news comes a week after the show stopped by the Georgia Tech campus, handing out Super Bowl tickets.

DeGeneres wasn’t there in person, but she did make an appearance via satellite, according to news reports.

Expect DeGeneres to tweet out more details later tonight or on Tuesday. For the Georgia Tech visit, students only got an hour’s notice.

“The Ellen DeGeneres Show” airs weekdays at 4 p.m. on KVUE.

Last week two people at Georgia Tech won tickets to the #SuperBowl. @UTAustin, I hope you’re free tomorrow.
