"You said you had a wish. Well, this is a shooting star," the singer told the two, pointing to a hanging stage prop.

Katie's wish was to spend the rest of her life with Becky.

"Well, I don't know if all of y'all have seen Becky, but she's pretty even without any makeup on. And she's perfect every time I look at her," Katie told the crowd, then got down on one knee and proposed with a ring, drawing cheers from the crowd and spurring the singer to drop to her knees herself in excitement.

"Becky, will you marry me?" Katie asked.

The singer then got up and told Becky, "Say yes, Becky, if you want to get married!" She did.
