Justin Timberlake Brings Joy to the World, Plays Matchmaker for Concert Couple
If the spiked eggnog isn't already putting you in a happy mood, this romantic clip will definitely get you feeling all warm and fuzzy inside. Yes, Christmas is a prime time for marriage proposals, and this Louisville, Kentucky, music fan scored an awesome opportunity to "put a ring on it" with maximum impact.
How? Just by having none other than Justin Timberlake host the betrothal, that's all!
After finishing up his tune "That Girl" Sunday night at Louisville's KFC Yum! Center, Timberlake introduced a couple in the audience, Josh and Kim, to the crowd; then invited them on stage.
"Josh called me earlier," a smiling Timberlake noted. "He's got something he wants to say."
Then, amid ear-shattering screams from the onlookers, Josh dropped to one knee, while his stunned lady love choked back tears and Timberlake enthusiastically clapped behind them. It was impossible to hear what exactly was said over the roar of the crowd, but Kim's answer was apparently in the affirmative.
Tracking the lucky girl down, she told Yahoo Music exclusively that the show was a present for Josh's birthday, and she figured the call-out was simply birthday luck. "When Justin asked us on stage I just thought it was just something he does at a concert," she explained. "When I got on stage it was so much emotion at one time...I was just in utter shock I was coming on stage with Justin Timberlake, I didn't even think of a proposal until Josh got the microphone!"
So how did her new fiance manage to get in touch with Timberlake? Kim explains that he started working on this project back in June. "Josh sent almost 100 emails to anyone he could find. And finally, Justin's manager got back in touch with him. They played email tag for a few months, and finally got everything worked out... Josh went the day of the concert to meet Justin and plan the evening. He spent four hours at the Yum! Center with Justin going over every detail of how it was going to go down!"
The happy couple are still reeling with excitement, but hope to start planning the big event after the new year. Of course: "We plan on playing a few Justin songs at the wedding!"
