During Adele One Night Only, a two-hours special which aired on CBS Sunday night, the 15-time Grammy award-winning singer returned to the stage for the first time in over four years for a concert in front of some of her famous friends and also sat down with Oprah for an exclusive interview.

While the night was filled with the most beautiful and breathtaking performances at the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, overlooking the city, and some deep, heartfelt conversations with Oprah, the moment everyone is talking, and crying, about was when Adele helped a man named Quentin propose to his girlfriend Ashley.

"I'm a bit nervous in case it doesn't go well. It's also a bit ironic that I'm letting this happen," said the singer, who is currently promoting her new album 30, which drops November 19th.

Following the surprise proposal, Adele stated, "Thank God she said yes, 'cause I didn't know who I was going to have to sing this song to next, you or him. Oh, my God, look at her she's so in shock," and proceeded to sing "Make You Feel My Love" for the newly engaged couple.

Ashley was, understandably, shook by the surprise, not only when Adele appeared and serenaded them, but also when she realized she had just gotten engaged in front of Hollywood's biggest celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio, Drake, Selena Gomez, James Corden, and Ellen Degeneres, just to name a few. Not to mention the fact that Ashley was handed a glass of champagne by Melissa McCarthy.

But the surprise proposal wasn't the only high of the night. While Adele debuted some songs from her new album 30, she also hit us with the classics.
