Those tuxes. The flowers. That hair. Yes, it's prom night at “Dancing With the Stars.” “Or as I call it, 'It seemed like a good idea at the time' night,” quipped host Tom Bergeron. The host had on a powder blue tuxedo complete with blue ruffle shirt that seemed like a re-creation of his own 1977 fete. No, "this is not an April Fool's joke," the host assured. “I really wore my hair like this,” admitted co-host Brooke Burke Charvet, outfitted in a bright fuchsia ruched formal number and teased-out hair that only the 1980s could love.

Some cynics say the Academy Awards are just a prom for the world's most spoiled children. They're wrong -- the Governors Ball is actually Hollywood's prom, while the Oscars show is more like a student election. Or is it a pep rally? On Sunday, after the final Oscar was stored in "The Hurt Locker," about 1,500 select guests rode the Hollywood & Highland complex escalators to even higher strata: the stately soiree from the Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

"I'm going to Starbucks," Posh announces. "Want anything?" "No." "Sure?" The way to mess with Posh's head lately is to not want anything. She is so under the gun -- with prom, with graduation, with life -- that when you don't want anything from her, she gets very suspicious of your intentions. I assure you, my intentions are as suspect as the next guy's. But I try not to press it. "You sure you don't want anything?" she asks again. Like many mothers, Posh is a Starbucks aficionado.

Years from now, 18-year-old Thomas Hickey wanted to remember this evening: for his black tuxedo with ivory touches, for the laughter of friends on their last big party together before graduation and for the applause and shouts of praise as he climbed onstage to be crowned prom king.
