The most awkward televised marriage proposal of Monday night surprisingly didn’t happen on The Bachelor. Instead it took place on The Voice, when 31-year-old R&B crooner Denton Arnell decided to pop the question to his girlfriend of three years during the Blind Auditions. 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 head-butted 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.
