A live TV proposal turned very awkward on The Voice, when the man accidentally headbutted his girlfriend.
31-year-old R&B contestant, Denton Arnell, decided to pop the question to his girlfriend of three years during the Blind Auditions of the US show. What could possibly go wrong?
Well, at first, things went very right: Denton performed a funky version of Drake’s Hold On, We’re Going Home and landed on John Legend’s team.
“Your tone is wonderful. You took a song that could have been a lot less exciting, but I think you’re really creative with the melody and made it your own,” John told Denton.
And then it was time for Denton take his girlfriend Tiffany home — hopefully with a ring on her finger.
“Being that [John] gave me a yes, I want to see if Tiffany would give me a yes,” said Denton, and the entire audience — especially the excitable Kelly Clarkson — erupted.
But then Tiffany’s skull nearly erupted, when she and Denton accidentally headbutted each other during his kneeling attempt.
The microphone conveniently picked up the loud thwack of their foreheads, and I wouldn’t be surprised if some genius engineer amplified that noise for comic effect.
If so, please give this show an Emmy for Outstanding Sound Editing for a Comedy Series.
Anyway, that snafu in no way dissuaded the highly amused and thankfully uninjured Tiffany from saying yes. Regardless of how far Denton goes on The Voice, I think he and Tiffany are going to go the distance. The couple that laughs together, stays together.
