Justin’s Bieber’s date to the Billboard Music Awards on May 20, 2012 was not girlfriend Selena Gomez. Instead, the teen pop star brought Virginia high school student, Cady Eimer, to the awards show at MGM Grand Resort and Casino in Las Vegas Sunday night.
Eimer, 18, had been asking Bieber, 18, to go to her senior prom with her for several years via her website. Despite her efforts, Bieber had to decline the invitation because of prior obligations.
“I couldn’t make it [to prom] so I said I need you to fly to the Billboard Awards and you can be my date,” Bieber told People. “She’s a big fan and I thought it would be fun.”
At Cady’s prom Saturday night, a video of just Bieber was played, asking her and her sister to join him at the Billboard Music Awards the next day. “I love you, thank you so much for the support,” Bieber said in the video.
