PORT HURON, Mich. -
The 16-year-old Port Huron Northern High School student has made a YouTube video asking Bruno Mars to take her to junior prom.
The video is a plea for the pop star's attention. It has been online for a couple of days and already has more than 2,000 views. However, the one view Emily is waiting for is Bruno Mars.
She hopes she can get TV talk show host Ellen DeGeneres to help her secure the date.
"There is so much to say about him. He is a phenomenal performer live," Emily said.
The dance is just a few months away and Emily's whole family has been helping to make sure she gets the date of a lifetime.
"I am a very loyal fan," she said. "We went through a 'Mars' drought, that's what I called it. He didn't do anything for like two years. He wasn't anywhere. He was working on the new album. I stuck through it. I'm single now and need someone to go with."
If Bruno says yes, Emily's parents say they are willing to relax a little on her curfew.
