Justin Bieber made a belieber’s dream come true. The 18-year-old singer brought Virginia high school student Cady Eimer as his date to the 2012 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday.
According to The Huffington Post Eimer scored the invite after she had spent over a year campaigning to get the singer to be her date to her senior prom. She created the “One Less Lonely prom” campaign. Bieber wasn’t able to make it to the prom, but he recorded a video message inviting the teen to the Billboard Music Awards instead. The video was played during her prom.
She was more than pleased with the invite, as she tweeted later on, “dreams do come true!”
"I couldn't make it [to prom] so I said I need you to fly to the Billboard Awards and you can be my date," he explained to People. "She's a big fan and I thought it would be fun."
There was one thing that made it different from prom, though.
"I didn't get her a corsage," he said.
