Prom pics past: TODAY anchors and viewers share their awkward and awesome

Producers surprised Tamron on Wednesday during TODAY's Take by revealing her prom photo for all to see. After the laughs subsided, Tamron offered a little background.

"That is my best friend Tyson and the contraption my mother hooked me in," she told Natalie and Al.

Willie was off Wednesday, so he missed out on the fun. Luckily we saved his prom photo for a rainy (or a beautiful April) day!

Also in the archives: Matt Lauer's.

And Natalie was more than willing to share hers.

The anchors' throwback photos inspired us to ask TODAY viewers: Do you have an awkward or awesome prom picture?

The response, as you'll see, was fantastic:

Carrie Weston Lenzen: My date and I switched clothes at prom in 1981 for a picture!

Today

Trisha Mohl: I went with my neighbor Brian. My mom took me to her hairdresser. I think when she heard "prom," she was thinking of her prom in 1955 and gave me a bouffant! This was 1985. Horrible!

Today

Meredith Eades: So bad. So embarrassed.  

Today

Wendy Heinrich Thiel: My dress took up half the room!!! 

Today

Fran Nelson: 1986 when Royal blue and frizzy hair was all the rave! AquaNet was my middle name:)

Today

Theresa Smith-Stamper: Prom 1985. Celebrating our 28th wedding anniversary in July.

Today

Michelle Ritchie Haddox: 1987!

Today

Sherri Mednick Gordon Gendelman: My husband and I at our senior prom 1974. I wore pants because I couldn't find a dress I liked.
