The singer stepped back and watched as dancer proposed to his girlfriend.

Beyonce shared the spotlight with two of her back up dancers onstage in St. Louis, Missouri on Saturday (10Sep16) when they became engaged during her show.

Fans were thrilled when the singer started performing her anthem Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It) for the first time on her Formation World Tour, and they were in for a big surprise when Beyonce handed her microphone over to John Silver.

He then got down on one knee and asked Beyonce's longtime dance captain Ashley Everett to be his wife.

The romantic dancer said, "She's my queen, so I feel like it's only right to come out here in my hometown and show you guys the epitome of a young woman that knows how to deal with all the nonsense and the B.S. of a St. Louis n**ga... Ashley Everett, will you marry me?"

He presented his girlfriend with a ring and she said yes as their boss walked over to congratulate the newly-engaged couple.

"Congratulations! Now let's see you do the choreography after that," she joked as she hugged Everett.

The concert was a relief to many fans after Beyonce scrapped her gig at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey earlier this week (beg05Sep16), citing vocal issues and telling fans doctors had ordered her to rest up.

That show was billed as the first show on the last leg of her Formation trek after Beyonce took a month off to vacation with her husband Jay Z and daughter Blue Ivy.

The rescheduled New Jersey concert will now take place on 7 October (16).

Beyonce will hit Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles on Wednesday (14Sep16), and Santa Clarita, California on 17 September (16), before heading home to Houston, Texas on 22 September (16).
