The 13 Raddest Musical Promposals

To ask their dates to prom, these high schoolers incorporated music by Drake, Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Marvin Gaye and more

When it comes to prom, the biggest dance of the year, today's invitations are getting more and more crafty. So crafty, that you could put these elaborate "promposals" on par with marriage proposals. (No, seriously. Stephen Colbert even ran a segment on it for The Colbert Report.)

We've scoured YouTube for which high school students made the greatest musical promposals for their sweethearts. The results were heartfelt cover songs, flash mobs, music videos, twerking (yes, twerking) and so much more high school sweetheart cuteness. Watch our picks for 11 raddest and get your creative juices flowing.

Covering Jason Mraz's "I'm Yours" in the Hallway

Maryland teen Bobby Chin singing Jason Mraz's signature hit was so adorable, the NY Daily News covered it. He croons, "Hey Sofia / I want you to know / that I met you about six months ago / You made me some large fries / They were the best fries of my life," before asking the aforementioned Sofia to the dance. 

What's weird is that neither the YouTube description nor Post confirms if they met in a McDonald's.

The Sexiest Mash Up of Miguel's "Adorn" & Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On"

In what may be the most sexually-charged promposal, this dude bumped and, uh, grind-ed (?) his way not just through Miguel's "Adorn" (sample lyric: "These lips can't wait to taste your skin"), but Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On." I think we can all predict what kind of prom these two had...

Recruiting a Quintet to Sing Brian McKnight's "Back at One"

Best part: the girl in the background at 1:25 who REALLY wishes she was the one being asked.

Then again, the best part might be when the quintet starts ad-libbing at 2:45 but actually don't know the lyrics to the Brian McKnight classic.

Recording a Special Music Video Before Asking in the Library

According to the YouTube description, the lucky lady Vanessa (whose reaction you can watch in real-time) loves making music videos and Disney movies. What a guy to combine both for this adorable vid to Aladdin's "A Whole New World"! My prom date definitely did not combine humongous cupcakes and K-pop girl groups to ask me...

Changing Pink's "Perfect" Lyrics to "Pretty, Pretty Please, Would You Go to Prom With Me?"

So cute, it doesn't even sound desperate!

Flash Mob to Justin Timberlake's "Suit & Tie"

This smooth high school dude led his date to him with a trail of roses before breaking out into a flash mob to perform Justin Timberlake's comeback single. Where did he find so many friends who could dance so well?

Performing "Hooked on a Feeling" With a Male Chorus Line in a School Auditorium

"Ooga-chaka! Ooga-chaka! Ooga-ooga-ooga-chaka!"

For this year's prom, Ryan of Loyola High School recruited 11 choir buds for an a cappella proposal of B.J. Thomas's classic love song in front of an entire auditorium! Can you believe she said no? 

Just kidding! She said yes! If she rejected him, that's an entire auditorium pissed at her...

Flash Mob to Rihanna's "Stay" Remix

This flash mob by high schooler Wyatt to ask date Hailey isn't the most incredible group-choreographed dance we've ever seen. But the fact that Hailey is uncontrollably sobbing throughout the entire performance makes this one so, so, SO sweet!

Do the "Harlem Shake"...Prom Style!

Baauer's "Harlem Shake" is way overdone...but we really like how Kathy Mayo asked Josh Carandang to the fance, showing that not only can girls ask guys to prom, but they can do it in awesomely clever ways. You go girl!

Over-the-Top Music Video/Live Performance Promposal

High school sweetie Isaac Garza not only made a three-minute music video for his date, but THEN performed Frankie Valli's "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You" backed by an orchestra. Are these two engaged yet? If not, let's make one thing clear: this dude's a keeper!!

Twerking in Gold Booty Shorts

According to "Senn's way" of asking someone to prom, a promposal doesn't need to be so over the top and pristinely calculated. In fact, all you need is a pair of gold booty shorts.

As Senn says, "You've seen some of the videos and it's like you're asking them to marry them. It's silly and outrageous." 

Twerking FTW!

If You're Reading This It's Prom Date

Drake's now iconic album cover gets a very flirty makeover. If you can't have Drizzy, date a Drizzy fan. Trust.

What makes you beautiful?

They say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. For women of a certain age, the way to their heart is probably One Direction. In this clip, a group of jocks choreograph a dance to the 1D hit "What Makes You Beautiful" for their love interests. Their moves are adorably lackluster and they totally win over a group of lucky ladies.
