PHOENIX -- When it comes to finding a date for his prom, an Arcadia High School student is setting his sights pretty high. He's asking singer Miley Cyrus to be his date.

"I've been obessed with her my whole life," Matt Peterson told 3TV's Yetta Gibson Tuesday.

 Peterson stripped down, grabbed some roses and a foam finger, and took his invitation to YouTube.

Peterson has some history with the singer. He met her during a Valley radio appearance in 2009. He also says during her Valley concert six months later, Cyrus stopped her show to give him a shout-out.

Peterson has produced a video asking Cyrus to his prom on May 3. He's making use of social media, including the hashtag #MileyProm, to attract the singer's attention. His video is now going viral, and has gotten more than 90K views.

Peterson said he plans to be at her Bangerz tour stop in Phoenix on Feb. 27, flowers in hand, awaiting her answer.

"I think even if she tweets me back or something, I'm going to start crying," he told Yetta.

He writes:
"Miley, I have been a fan of yours from the beginning. You've changed my life, and I want to repay you by giving you the best night of your life. In order to do that, allow me to take you to my Prom on May 3, 2014. I promise you, we will have a great time.. and after our first encounter, I won't cry on your dress. I hope you will tell me yes when I'm sitting with roses in the 6th row at your BANGERZ tour in Phoenix on February 27th!"
