Justin Bieber isn’t her “Boyfriend,” but he was Cady Eimer’s date for a night at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday.

Who is Cady Eimer? The 18-year-old Virginia high school student had been asking the superstar to go to her senior prom with her for several years via her website, but Bieber had to decline the invitation because of prior obligations.

But Bieber had another idea.

“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,” he told PEOPLE. “She’s a big fan and I thought it would be fun.”

Not bad for a modified senior prom. Bieber, however, did forget one prom staple. “I didn’t get her a corsage,” he said.
