After waiting nearly a month to get a response from Big Time Rush member James Maslow, an Ohio student’s dream finally comes true! Well, sort of.
Last month, Hannah Wackernagle, a senior who has down syndrome, asked the 23-year-old singer to her high school prom on April 25th in Grove City.

On Friday, James tells Hannah via a video played at her school: “I have seen that amazing video that you made asking me to prom and honestly I’m touched. Thank you very very much. But as you know, I’m working on 'Dancing with the Stars', so that weekend I can’t fly out.”
UPDATE: Peta Murgatroyd joins James, Hannah and Hannah's sister and shared this picture on Twitter calling it a "magical day"!
Even though James’ schedule doesn’t allow him to attend the prom, he still makes up for it by asking her to come to Los Angeles for a fun weekend!

Hannah, her mom and her sister will be hanging out with James at Disneyland on Saturday as well as be part of a special dance with James on Sunday in the DWTS ballroom. Finally, the family will get to see the show live on April 14.
In Hannah’s YouTube video we see the future Columbus State Community College student prepping for prom by running around the track, trying on dresses and even waxing her eyebrows. Her classmates, friends and family were all part of the video and waited for James to reply to the Twitter account “@Promposal2014.”
