101.1 The Wiz caught up with our “Prom Night Out” winner Lidia Agustin for her take on the picture perfect night she had with her celebrity crush and here’s what the prom princess had to say about her special night presented in part by Crush.
“Wow! I never thought I would have won the “Prom Date with a Celebrity Crush.” When I entered the contest, I just entered to just give it a try not knowing that I would be chosen as the winner. I was, of course, very shocked when 101.1 The Wiz’s Don Juan Fasho called me and told me that I had won. I was very excited and couldn’t wait to tell the family.
I was also very nervous and excited throughout the week trying to figure out who it would be, but at the same time, I was like, “It doesnt matter who it is.” I just knew that it would be a great experience for me and a memorable one, too.
Soon afterward, everybody at school heard that I was going to prom with a celebrity. Everyday, I would go to class many people would ask me who it was and I would have to tell them I didn’t know yet and that I would find out on Friday (the night before prom). Everyone was so excited. People started naming celebrities they thought it would be like Chris Brown, Bow Wow, Omarion, even Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em. I had no clue who it could be.
So, Friday comes around. I was both excited and nervous to finally find out who my celebrity crush would be. It was finally time to go down to visit 101.1 The Wiz‘s radio station to find out who my celebrity prom date would be. I know I acted very nervous the whole time. I mean who wouldn’t be?! (laughs)
But finally when he walked through the door and turned that corner, I was sitting there thinking, “Oh my…it’s Marques Houston!” I never thought it would have been him. I quickly gave him a hug and we talked for awhile. The whole radio station exprience was great and I had fun even though I was nervous. It was soon time to leave and we said goodbye until the next day.
Saturday arrived and I woke up really early to go get my hair done and all that stuff by 5:00 PM. I started getting myself ready and shortly after 6:00PM, The Wiz’s own Simone Party sent me a message telling me that they were all on their way to pick me up. When I saw the limo pull up, I knew they were finally here and I got very nervous all over again.
Marques Houston walked through the door with Simone Party and they each were able to meet my parents as we took pictures with the entire family. We jumped into the limo and it was beautiful. The driver took us straight to Jag’s Steak & Seafood, a very nice restaurant where we had a really good dinner. I really didn’t know what to order (laughs), but I chose something small because I wasn’t very hungry at the moment. (Maybe too nervous to eat?)
It was soon time to go to prom. When we got there, security guards were waiting for Marques and I to enter into the building. When everybody saw Marques and I walk in they screamed and started taking pictures. That moment felt so good! Marques even performed and he sang to me right there in front of everyone. I think that was the best part of my night. Everything else went great and I had so much fun.
I really just want to thank Simone Party and her 101.1 The Wiz crew for making my prom a wonderful and memorable night. Thank you! You made me feel comfortable. Thank you also to our sponsor Crush. I loved the time that I spent with Marques Houston and I will always remember this night. I can’t wait to see how our prom pictures turned out.” (laughs)
