Adele delivered an absolutely breathtaking performance at her hotly-anticipated comeback concert and she even orchestrated a marriage proposal mid-show! Don’t let the divorce album fool you—Adele is still a romantic at heart.
The ‘Easy On Me’ songstress welcomed the star-studded audience in helping her make one particular couple’s wildest dreams come to life during her televised special, Adele: One Night Only. She addressed the crowd and told them about Quentin and Ashley, a couple who had recently marked seven years together and also happen to be big Adele fans!
Adele cheekily quipped: “If you make a noise, I’m going to kill you.”
A blindfolded Ashley who was wearing noise-cancelling headphones was led onstage and the unforgettable moment unfolded. Once the two were standing center stage, Quentin got down on one knee before a surprised Ashley, who removed her blindfold and headphones.
“Who are these people?” Ashley asked as the crowd laughed.
Later Quentin officially asked, “Will you marry me?”
The fiancé-to-be instantly begin to cry and asked: “What are you doing?”
Quentin thanked his partner for her patience and proclaimed that the proposal had been “a long time coming”.
