Phillip Phillips response to prom-posal

Phillip Phillips Responds To Teen's Prom Proposal

One 16-year-old got pretty creative when she asked her celebrity crush to be her date for her high school prom.

"Because I wanna go With you,
with you Baby I'm not moving on
Unless you take me to my prom
With you, with you."

Carly Meyers rewrote the lyrics to Phillip Phillip's hit "Gone, Gone, Gone" to ask the American Idol winner to her prom, prom, prom.

Meyers' video caught TV host Michael Strahan's eye and he invited her to appear live on "Good Morning America" Thursday, saying he had a special guest who wanted to speak to her.

"What's up, Carly? Good Morning America sent me your incredible prom proposal and it sounded so lovely. But sadly I won't be able to make it. So instead I want to give you and your friends some tickets to my show."

Did you see Meyers freaking out in that video? She was totally shocked! Tickets for Phillips' upcoming tour don't sound like a bad consolation prize.

He told Meyers he would see her at his July 12th show, where she would tell him about everything he missed at her prom.

And it doesn't sound like Meyers had a hard time finding another date for prom, which is just a few weeks away. Last week she tweeted that a fellow student had already asked her.

Lucky lady -- she gets a date to prom and STILL gets to meet Phillips. She probably owes Michael Strahan a big thank you.

Oh, to be 16 again and have star crushes. I wrote so many letters to David Cassidy, Davey Jones, and Bobby Sherman. Never heard from them, of course. Why can't all of you who are making stupid comments just see the fun in this whole thing. So, you've never heard of Phillip Phillips. She had and that's what this story is all about.

Hey Mike, while you're still playing Cupid, could you set me up with Sophia Vergara?

Phillip Philips has a "show"? C'mon, he's one of the biggest flops (of the many) that American Idol has produced.

It was Strahand segment but he did nothing . GMA directors contacted Phillips record label an asked to do an airing for the girl .

Good for her but bad to claim Michael had anything to do with it . Now with Laura the have matching goofy ends to over crowed desk !!

Their show sucks. At least when Regis was there, there was some decorum. Now, it's a black/white love affair.

Regis has NEVER been the host of Good Morning America, you must have misread the story. This took place on GMA, not Kelly and Michael.
