Looks like the OG American Idol is now a bonafide proposal planner. At a recent backstage meet-and-greet, singer Kelly Clarkson helped a fan pull off a proposal, surprising his boyfriend with a dropped knee and an engagement ring. We're officially adding this to the list of Kelly's greatest hits!
Kelly Clarkson fans Justin Blake and Alex Malerba attended the singer's Las Vegas concert on Tuesday night, where after a night of singing along to Clarkson's tunes, Malerba scored backstage access to meet the star.
After snapping a pic with Clarkson, Malerba let her in on his proposal plan. "I said, 'My boyfriend is out here and I was planning on proposing to him and I want you to help,'" Malerba explained to Too Fab "And she was like, 'You should have told me! I would have done it during show!' "
Malerba asked if he could bring his boyfriend backstage so he could pop the question now, to which Clarkson replied, "Yes, we are gonna do it. We aren't waiting another minute!" And the plan was in motion!
Malerba fetched Blake and brought him backstage, under the guise of taking some photos with Clarkson. "Hey guys! How are you?" Clarkson reportedly said, keeping things casual. Then, Malerba handed his phone off to someone standing by to capture the moment.
"Let's get a picture," said Clarkson excitedly in a video of the proposal Malerba has since shared on Instagram. "I'm going to get in the middle," she said, squeezing in-between the about-to-be fiancés.
Once they snapped a photo, Malerba suddenly dropped to one knee and popped the question to his seriously shocked love. "I told him how much I love him and said how I want to spend my life with him," remembers Malerba.
"Oh my God, I'm so happy!" exclaimed Clarkson in the video, as Blake said yes. "I'm like a part of it!" she screamed, turning the couple's post-proposal embrace into a group hug.
After taking a bit of a breather from all the excitement, Malerba and Blake told the "Breakaway" singer that they've been together for four years. "Oh my God! It's about damn time!" she hilariously told them.
Malerba revealed to Too Fab that Clarkson is "absolutely" invited to the wedding—maybe she'll even officiate!
