Phoenix's Matt Peterson Finally Gets His Big Prom Date With Miley Cyrus

|Miley and Matt, besties for life.|
Peterson had some particularly choice floor seats six rows back from the stage, which gave the lad a primo view of Cyrus' fantastic and enormous concert spectacle. He got an even better view when she invited him onstage about midway through her 20-song set. As you can see and hear via the YouTube video below, which was shot by Up On the Sun writer Nicki Escudero, the US Airways Center crowd lost their shit when Peterson was onstage.
Matt and Miley staged an impromptu mini-prom then and there, which included Peterson giving her his jacket, presenting a corsage, getting down to just his "Bangerz boxers" and a necktie, doing some slow dancing while she sang "Adore You," doing some canoodling, and even getting a kiss (albeit on the cheek). He also took what's arguably the greatest selfie of his entire life.
If nothing else, Peterson also gets the honor of being Cyrus' first (and likely only) prom date ever, as she stated during the concert that she never went to one as a teenage. So he has that going for him. And it was a memorable date for her, as Cyrus and her bestie beau had the following exchange on Twitter after the show:
@heymattpeterson thank you for a prom night i i will never forget =]— Miley Ray Cyrus (@MileyCyrus) February 28, 2014
To which he gleefully responded:
@MileyCyrus currently don't have many words so I'll just say, thank you. I apologize for my sweaty hands, dance moves, & nonexistent 6 pack.— Matt Peterson (@heymattpeterson) February 28, 2014
Suffice it to say, the whole experience is probably going to be one of those indelible memories that Peterson will have pretty much forever. At the moment's he's still in shock and stated as much during an appearance on FOX-10 this morning.
"Even looking at these pictures, it doesn't seem real at all," he says. "I don't know when it's going to hit me."
Probably after he gets some shut-eye, which apparently isn't happening anytime soon.
