Adele helped a man propose to his girlfriend during her CBS special ‘Adele One Night Only,’ even while noting it was ‘a bit ironic’ to play cupid while promoting her ‘divorce, babe’ album.
As part of the two-hour special, a fan named Quentin brought his unsuspecting partner of seven years, Ashley, to Griffith Observatory, where Adele was performing to celebrities including Gordon Ramsey, Melissa McCarthy, Gabrielle Union, Leonardo DiCaprio and Ellen DeGeneres.
‘I need every person to be really quiet, alright? If you make a noise, I’m going to kill you,’ the 15th Grammy winner said cheekily before Quentin guided Ashley, who was blindfolded, to the the stage.
When Ashley removed her blindfold, she was shocked to see the audience in front of her and asked her soon-to-be fiancé ‘Who are these people?’
‘Thank God you didn’t let me eat, I would’ve thrown up,’ Ashley added, even before finding out that Adele was hiding behind the deemed lights of the stage, making the celebrity crowd burst out laughing.
After Quentin popped the question, Adele emerged from the dark as an evidently dumbfounded Ashley wiped away her shock tears.
‘Hello Ashley. Hi Quentin, you alright?’ said Adele. The British singer then instructed them to take the seats in the front row and enjoy the ‘Make You Feel My Love’ performance.
The concert, Adele’s first in over four years, was pre-recorded in October.
‘Thank God she said yes, because I didn’t know who I was going to have to sing this song to, you or him. Oh my god. Look at her, she’s so in shock,’ Adele said as Melissa McCarthy offered champagne to Ashley.
But Quentin’s emotive speech had his fiancée in tears long before Adele unveiled her presence to Ashley, who went up to the stage and hugged the singer after her performance.
