Adele praised for making couple's engagement 'amazing'

Adele has been thanked for the most "amazing" evening by the woman who got engaged at her concert in London on Tuesday night (15.03.16).

Financial advisor Natalie King was left overjoyed when Johnny Biggle, her partner of 12 years, popped the question as Adele performed 'Make You Feel My Love' at The O2.

She was then further flabbergasted when the music superstar invited the newly betrothed couple onto the stage to personally congratulate them on their engagement.

Natalie, 29, couldn't have imagined a more special way to become Johnny's fiancée than the way it happened at the gig.

Describing the evening's events during an appearance on UK TV show 'This Morning', she said: "Johnny went to get a drink, and then the song came on, and he came back and said the bar was closed.

"Then he said, 'I've got a question to ask you.' With it being Johnny I didn't think anything of it, then he dropped down to one knee and then it was just pure craziness, there were phones in my face and people were screaming."

Going on to thank Adele for her reaction, Natalie added: "Adele is my idol. When she got us on stage, it was just amazing."

She also told MailOnline: "To be asked on stage I was in total shock. It was amazing to meet Adele. She said 'congratulations'. This was my early 30th birthday present but I never expected anything like this.

"If I knew I was going to be on stage and all over the news I'd have worn a better top!"

Natalie - who has a son Alfie with her partner - also revealed she took home a huge bag of confetti that was fired into the crowd as Adele closed her show with 'Rolling In The Deep' as a memento.

Each piece of confetti contains a song lyric, such as "everybody loves the things you do" from 'When We Were Young' and "throw your soul through every open door from 'Rolling in The Deep', or a thank you message in Adele's own handwriting.

The 27-year-old singer - who has three-year-old son Angelo with her partner Simon Konecki - told the happy couple their engagement was the "most beautiful thing" she had ever witnessed at one of her concerts.

Speaking on stage, she said: "I thought there was a fight at first! I saw loads of camera phone lights go on and loads of arms go up and I thought it was a fight ... I'm just so in love with you both ... That was the most beautiful thing I've ever witnessed at one of my shows. If I'd known I'd have dedicated that song to you. Are you gonna set a date? Wait, save up."

As Natalie and Johnny left the stage and returned to their seats, Adele added: "That was amazing, people started cheering, then they started kissing, then she started crying, it was lovely. Oh my goodness!"
