We love a good public, onstage proposal—especially when the asker gets an assist from a celebrity. But this engagement story has to top them all: Choreographer John Silver asked his girlfriend, Ashley Everett, who is Beyoncé's dance captain, to marry him during the St. Louis stop of the Formation Tour, after the song, "Single Ladies."

"She's my queen, so I feel like it's only right to come out here in my hometown," said Silver, who is from the Missouri city. "Baby, I know you don't think I express my love," Silver continued as the crowd cheered, "but I feel like, what better time than now to do it, in front of a thousand people?"

The brave groom-to-be got down on one knee and popped the question, and Everett of course answered, "yes," pulling her now-fiancé up and kissing him. Beyoncé approached to congratulate then but then quickly (and hilariously) backed away when she realized their moment wasn't over yet.


"Now let's see you do the choreography after that," she joked after embracing the happy couple.



"Still wrapping my head around the incredible, magical moment that happened last night!" Everett posted on Instagram along with a collage of photos from the big moment. "It was an absolute dream come true! Thank you to everyone who helped make it so epic and iconic, and to everyone who supports us and congratulated us! To my now FIANCÉ @1j.silver YOU DID THAT & I LOVE THE SH*T OUT OF YOU!!! Shocked is an understatement. I'm so overly excited for this new chapter in our lives and of course I can't wait to be your WIFE!!! I am truly #blessed 9.10.16 is a day I will never forget #helikeditsoheputaringonit #isaidyes".
