Fans flooded the comments section with their prom pictures.
The prom dress of my daughter’s dreams. Sobbing not because prom is canceled this year but because she looks like a million dollars in it pic.twitter.com/rw2aqdHY5B— LeslieDecker (@deckergirl1) March 31, 2020
I was going to wear this dress for my Senior Prom. But, with Senior year now being over I’ll never get the opportunity to go. My bf and I couldn’t attend prom last year. So now we will never get the special moment to go together. pic.twitter.com/WNcLfGF8B7— G I A N N A (@GiannaCocuzza) March 31, 2020

Ever since production of her Ellen DeGeneres Show stopped due to the coronavirus pandemic, Ellen has been keeping her fans updated with her time spent in her house.
After trying her hands on a 4,000 piece puzzle, Ellen resorted to lying upside down on her couch and calling her celebrity friends such as Michelle Obama, John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, Adam Levine and Courtney Cox.
