Lauren Alaina may have missed her high school prom to open for Sugarland last Saturday night, but the American Idol runner-up proved she knows how to make the best of it.

First, she encouraged the Louisville, Kentucky audience to participate as she threw her own “prom” during her set. Performing a cover of Lady Antebellum’s hit “Dancing Away With My Heart,” Lauren invited a young man to slow-dance with her onstage.

Later that evening, Lauren tweeted, “I crashed a prom tonight after my set. So glad I still got to go to prom.” It turns out she and a bandmate wandered into the Lanesville High School dance, which was going on at a nearby hotel.  Both a senior from that prom and her dancing partner from onstage later expressed their gratitude via Twitter, for a night they won’t soon forget.
