Teen With Cerebral Palsy Asks Ellen DeGeneres (And Her Dance Moves) To Prom

By Taylor Pittman

Asking famous singers and big-name celebs to prom isn’t exactly new, though requesting the presence of a talk show host to the big dance might be a first.

Alirio Magana, a student at North Rockland High School in New York, created a promposal video asking Ellen DeGeneres to be his prom date.
