The long-time lead dancer for Beyoncé, Ashley Everett, stole the show for a brief moment at the St. Louis, Missouri, stop for the Formation World Tour on Saturday.

During Bey's performance of "Single Ladies," which Everett was in the original video, the queen paused to announce, "I think it's somebody I want to bring on the stage." She pump-faked the crowd into thinking it would be a lucky fan, but instead it was Everett's boyfriend, John Silver.

The queen passed the mic to Silver and the feels start to take over as he hugs Everett.

"I don't know if y'all know this young lady, she goes by the name of Ashley Everett. She's my queen," he said. "Baby, I know that you don't think that I express my love to you in front of everybody, so I feel like what better time than now to do it in front of thousands and thousands of people."

Silver popped the question and his bride-to-be said yes!

"So I put a ring on it. Thank you, Bey," he said.


After a congrats from Bey, the music commenced and the ladies effortlessly finished the "Single Ladies" choreography without missing a beat.

Everett expressed how surprised she was in an Instagram post on Sunday. "To my now FIANCÉ @1j.silver YOU DID THAT & I LOVE THE SH*T OUT OF YOU!!!" she wrote. "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!!!💍👰🏽 "

Silver also posted his excitement, saying that he "almost threw up my balls" before he went on stage.

See what magic happens when you follow Beyoncé's advice, fellas?

Congrats to the soon-to-be Mr. and Mrs. Silver!
