Favorite Movie and TV Prom is the most anticipated night of high school, and all of that sparkle and drama has certainly played a big role in the plots of some our favorite shows and movies! So, we asked our ten finalists, "What's your favorite prom scene in any movie or TV show?" Whether it's super romantic, awkward or unpredictable, we all love to indulge in the on-screen prom shenanigans!
It's no secret that prom can turn you into a bundle of nerves. The remedy? Laughter. Phuong and Kaitlyn love the quirky prom scenes from "Gossip Girl" and "Napoleon Dynamite." They're great reminders to not take yourself so seriously on the big night. In the same spirit of light-hearted fun, Leslie and Sarah love the musical scenes from "High School Musical 3" and "Grease." Who doesn't love a prom scene that gets you singing and dancing before your actual prom?
Then, there are the super romantic prom stories that make you melt every time. Both Sandra and Jessica love the fairytale scene from "A Cinderella Story." Hilary Duff plays out every girl's dream as she slow dances with Chad Michael Murray under the magical moonlight. Annie cheers for the underdog in "Prom"; where the shy guy spends the whole movie looking for his crush and wins her over by the end, giving everyone hope for a fairytale ending!
No matter how much you plan for your perfect night, be prepared for the unexpected! The last two films on our list have unconventional prom scenes paired with a positive message. In Ai's choice, "Teen Spirit," the most popular girl in school is forced to help one unpopular student win Prom King or Queen. In the end, everyone learns that being popular isn't important- it's about being yourself! Lili and Chloe both love the final scene from "Mean Girls"; Cady Heron shows up to prom in her Mathlete outfit, wins prom queen, gives a speech about girl power, then breaks her crown to pieces and tosses it into the crowd. And Cady reminds us of the main message in all of these Hollywood prom scenes: true beauty comes from the inside.
