DJ Pauly D saved the day when Questlove canceled his upcoming performance at a Pennsylvania high school’s prom, valiantly stepping in to offer his humble DJ services to the event.

But, The Associated Press reports, students at Pennsbury High School East weren’t too happy about the switcheroo, and the resulting backlash on Twitter was enough to get Questo to “adjust some things” so he can perform on Saturday after all.

Now, the Fairless Hills soiree will feature Questlove and Pauly D on the decks, TMZ confirms, which is quite the double bill.

Pennsbury High takes their prom very seriously. They’ve gotten John Mayer and Asher Roth to perform in the past, and their prom has been voted “Best Prom Night In America” by several magazines, which is apparently a superlative that exists.
