Both Jason Klock of Klock Entertainment and Chris Pyle of Soundwaves Entertainment agree that the classic line dance is a big "no-no" for today's prom crowd.

What can teens expect to hear at prom? Well, the hot song is going to be - without a doubt - "Thrift Shop" by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.

"It's still going to be popular and if it's not, I think the kids will still go nuts for it," Klock said.

"Gangnam Style" will also be a hit, Pyle predicted, naming it one of the hottest songs of the year. While the rest of us may be tired of the KPop song, teens can't resist the song or its trademark dance. "I played it a few weeks ago for a Sweet 16 and they went nuts," Klock said. "They wanted to hear it."

Other radio hits you expect to hear at prom are "#thatPOWER" by will.i.am and featuring Justin Bieber, "Harlem Shake" by Baauer, "Feel This Moment" by Pitbull, featuring Christina Aguilera and "Started From the Bottom" by Drake.

Pyle also plans on playing a bit of the "Cha Cha Slide" and "Cupid Shuffle," both crowd favorites. Those two line dances replace the aforementioned "Electric Slide" and the 90s craze "Macarena."

When it comes to slow songs, Klock believes "Mirrors" by Justin Timberlake could be the go-to ballad - but he admits he's biased due to his love of all things J.T. "We could be completely wrong, because what we love is not always what the kids love," he said.

Pyle is putting his money on "Wanted" by Hunter Hayes - although he admits it may be one of the few slow songs he plays.

"To be honest with you, for proms the kids request us not to play a lot of slow songs," he's aid. "They want more fast songs."

What won't you hear at prom? "Any 'wedding hit,' you don't play at a prom," Klock said. So don't go in chaperoning and expecting to hear the B52s "Love Shack" or Kool and The Gang's "Celebration."
