Mimi did that! Mariah Carey helped one of her backup dancers get engaged during her Las Vegas performance on Saturday, July 14.
The legendary singer, who stunned in a sparkling white gown that could have easily been a wedding dress, called her backup dancer Manwe forward onstage during a lull between songs.
After her dancer brought his boyfriend onstage, Carey smiled at him and said, “I’ve heard a lot about you.” The boyfriend, Sumeet, took the moment in stride, responding, “I’ve heard a lot about you, too.” Carey smiled and then told Manwe as she walked off to the side of the stage, “I hope you’re surprised in a very big way.”
At that, Sumeet took control of the moment and began to speak directly to Manwe as the crowd cheered the couple on. Sumeet eventually dropped down to one knee and asked Manwe to marry him.
