  • A TikTok video captured the moment a proposal went wrong during a Beyoncé concert.

  • The clip showed a man dropping the ring on the floor while appearing to propose in the crowd.

  • Commenters responded with a mixture of delight and confusion at the chaotic event.

A TikToker posted a video of the moment a man appeared to drop an engagement ring as he asked a woman to marry him at a Beyoncé concert in London, in what has been labeled the "messiest proposal."

"The messiest proposal at London's first Beyoncé's Renaissance show!" read a caption on the post, uploaded by a user named Harvey Kindlon on May 30.

The clip began by showing a man down on one knee in the middle of a crowd of concertgoers. A woman opposite him was holding her hand over her mouth in shock.

The surrounding crowd could be seen beginning to scream and film the couple when they appeared to realize what was happening, but when the man tried to put the ring on the woman's hand, he struggled, because she was holding a stack of plastic cups.

"Bitch drop the cups," one person in the crowd could be heard shouting.

Moments later, the man on one knee began looking frantically at the ground, appearing to have dropped the ring amid all the commotion.

Various members of the crowd began to help him look for it, and after a few seconds, his partner spotted it, picked it up, and handed it back to him.

The man then attempted to put the ring on his partner's right hand, but some members of the crowd began to gesture that he should be placing it on her left hand, where an engagement ring typically goes.

"Sorry how did he get the wrong hand (???)" an onscreen caption on the post read.

Finally, when he had put the ring on her left hand, the couple embraced, and the surrounding crowd members began to cheer loudly.

Commenters reacted to the video, which received 423,000 views, with a mixture of delight and confusion. Some said they were amused by the chaotic proposal, while others said they couldn't understand how it went so wrong.

"This was so stressful to watch," wrote one top commenter.

"Am Smiling n cringing simultaneously," wrote another user.

A number of commenters also joked that they would be slightly annoyed if someone staged a proposal during a concert, as it would interrupt their experience of the live music.

Despite those concerns, concert proposals remain hugely popular, and have previously proven to create viral moments during various celebrity tours. For example, in March, a fan captured footage of the moment Lizzo paused her concert in Glasgow, Scotland, to help two fans get engaged.

Harvey Kindlon and representatives for Beyoncé did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
