He put a ring on it! Beyoncé‘s longtime dance captain Ashley Everett got engaged to her boyfriend, John Silver, at the singer’s concert in St. Louis on Saturday, September 10.
After Queen Bey, 35, delivered a surprise performance of her hit “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” — which she hasn’t performed on her Formation World Tour since opening night in April — she handed her microphone over to Silver, who is also one of her backup dancers.
Clad in a black-and-white suit, Silver walked over to Everett, 27, and held her hand before addressing the crowd (watch the video below). “She’s my queen, so I feel like it’s only right to come out here in my hometown and show you guys the epitome of a young woman that knows how to deal with all the nonsense and the BS of a St. Louis n‑‑‑er.”
While getting down on bended knee and presenting his girlfriend with an engagement ring, Silver continued, “Ashley Everett, will you marry me?”
Beyoncé then walked over to congratulate the newly engaged couple when she realized they were still hugging and kissing. Giggling, she hilariously backed away and let the pair have their moment in the spotlight.
“Congratulations! Now let’s see you do the choreography after that,” the “Hold Up” singer quipped while giving Everett a hug.
Beyoncé’s hugely successful Formation World Tour will come to an end at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, on Friday, October 7.
