He put a ring on it—and she said yes!

Ever since it kicked off, the Formation World Tour has been changing lives. None have felt its impact quite as massively as backup dancers John Silver and Ashley Everett. When Beyoncé‘s epic stage show stopped in Silver’s hometown of St. Louis, the creative director and choreographer knew he had make his city proud.

He did just that by shouting out St. Louis in his touching proposal to his dance captain girlfriend. In the middle of performing “Single Ladies,” Beyoncé brought out Everett, who popped the question then and there.

After Everett accepts, her fellow dancers join her for a group hug while Beyoncé finishes out the song’s ultra-catchy—and especially meaningful—hook: “If you liked it then you should’ve put a ring on it.”
