Towards the middle of the show, the 25-year-old told the crowd that she needed an audience member to join her on stage.

Her dancers brought up Rayvon Owen on stage and Demi told the audience how she actually knew him. When she asked who he was with at the show, he said his boyfriend Shane Bitney Crone and they tried looking for him in the crowd.

At that moment, Shane popped up out of an elevator lift in the stage to surprise Rayvon and said some romantic things before getting down on one knee to propose! Rayvon said “yes” and then Demi sang her song “Yes” to them while they sat on stage.

Shane is a filmmaker and LGBT rights activist who made the documentary Bridegroom, which was about the difficulties he faced after his partner died in 2011. Rayvon is a singer-songwriter who came in fourth place on Season 14 of American Idol.

“Weird Al” Yankovic  teamed up with Lin-Manuel Miranda to deliver the latest “Hamildrop” – “The Hamilton Polka,” a 14-track mashup of tunes from Miranda’s blockbuster stage production, Hamilton.

Yankovic puts his unique spin on fan favorites like “My Shot” in a rousing polka medley, running through all 14 tunes in five minutes flat.

Yankovic and Miranda appeared together Friday on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote the new track, and things, naturally, got pretty silly.

“It is so intricate, it’s complex, it has every single thing that if you are a fan of ‘Weird Al’… like there’s a side whistle, there’s a duck quack, there’s a ‘pew!’ cartoon sound effects,” Fallon gushed of the new track. “It’s so great, the polka’s great, the harmony’s great, you’re rapping is great. This must be the most intricate thing you’ve ever done.”

Fallon also shared footage of him and Miranda listening to “The Hamilton Polka” for the first time, and they were super jazzed about it. In addition to joining Fallon for an interview, the entertainers lip-synced the “The Hamilton Polka” track.
