GRAND BLANC (WJRT) - (05/03/14) - For most people, prom is something they will remember for the rest of their life.

A new trend among teens is making it even more memorable for those who are social media savvy.

Teens are using Twitter, Instagram and even YouTube to ask celebrities to be their prom date.

Fenton High School senior Justin Hang became friends on Twitter with Disney Channel star Allie DeBerry. Last month, he asked her to prom in a "prom-posal" YouTube video.

She agreed to go with him, if he could get the video re-tweeted 1,500 times.

He did it.

Since then, he's become a minor celebrity himself, appearing in People Magazine and on the Ryan Seacreast Show.

Saturday night, they met in person for the first time and went to Fenton High School's Senior Prom.

"I'm excited, nervous, I'm just glad she's here," Hang said.

The theme was "The Great Gatsby".

It's a special night for both of them. Because of her career, Allie is unable to attend a prom of her own.

"I'm just excited to be here, everyone's been really welcoming and really sweet, I think they think it's pretty cool, his friends," she said.
