The Voice shocker! Contestant Nathan Brake makes television history as he proposes to his boyfriend on hit show
Kelly Rowland promised to sing “When Love Takes Over” at the couple’s wedding, regardless of whose team he chose to be on
Reality television shows are about making a moment last forever and this time, they did for a gay couple. A contestant on “The Voice Australia” surprised audiences and celebrity judges by popping the question to his boyfriend on Sunday (April 29), and he reportedly made television history in the process.
Singer Nathan Brake left the audience and the judges speechless after he performed a cover of Nick Jonas song, Jealous. The minute Nathan started to sing, the judges knew right then that he was talent they needed on their team. Joe Jonas, Kelly Rowland, and Aussie pop star Delta Goodrem, all tried their best to convince him to join their team.
While Nathan had to make some serious choices on the show, there was one thing that he was sure about — marrying his boyfriend whom he had been dating for six years. And what better way to ask someone to marry than in front of the live audience?
Before Nathan announced the judge he chose, he said: "I’ve also made another decision". He then asked his partner Mitchell to be brought onto the stage. "I just wanted to bring you out here because we’ve had a beautiful six years together," Nathan told the world of his boyfriend.
"You’ve been a constant support, so I just wanted to ask you, will you marry me," he said. The minute Nathan uttered those words the entire audience started cheering for the two and Mitchell could not stop himself from saying ‘Yes, of course’. Even the judges were happy and emotional looking at the scene that took place on the stage and did not waste a minute to congratulate the happy couple.
They ran up to the stage and started wishing the pair while the audience cheered in the background. "That was so beautiful. I love an unexpected proposal," Boy George, who is the fourth judge on the show, told the pair. Rowland promised to sing “When Love Takes Over” at the couple’s wedding, regardless of whose team he choose to be on.
Same-sex marriage was declared legal in Australia in December after a postal survey demonstrated 61.6 percent of the country was in favour of changing the law.
