Tulsan Couple Get Engaged in First-Ever Proposal During Blind Auditions on The Voice
On Monday’s episode of The Voice, history was made as a blind audition became the show’s first-ever on-stage marriage proposal.
Singing duo Jubal Lee Young and Amanda Preslar‘s performance of “Seven Bridges Road” got Williams and Stefani to turn their red chairs. But even before deciding between the celebrity coaches, the couple from Tulsa, Oklahoma got a round of applause from veteran Voice stars Shelton and Levine.
“How long have you guys been performing together?” Stefani asked as Preslar replied, “Only 18 months.”
Shelton may have been the catalyst Young needed to propose when the four-time champion asked the pair, “Are you married?”
Young quickly got down on bended knee with a diamond ring in his hand as their family and friends backstage were equally surprised and delighted when the bride-to-be said yes.
Their first order of business as a newly engaged couple wasn’t when to get married, but who their coach would be!
In the end, they chose Team Pharrell as the hitmaker took to Twitter to congratulate his new recruits.
“I got my first duo AND they get engaged in front of our eyes. How is this real life?? #VoiceBlinds,” Williams happily tweeted.
A Voice wedding could be in the making as Levine noted: “I happen to know that Blake is technically an ordained minister, so if you want to get it done.”
