WATCH: Christina Aguilera helps fan to pop the question!

It was an unforgettable night for everyone there, especially Ben Lear and Mike Kontomanolis

Christina Aguilera kicked off her Liberation Tour with a bang and an onstage proposal! At the opening of the tour at the Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, Florida, Aguilera helped create a once-in-a-lifetime moment for fans Ben Lear and Mike Kontomanolis.

After singing her latest release, “Unless It’s With You”, the singer/songwriter invited the “two special people” up on stage and teased the audience with a “really special surprise”.

On stage, Lear turned to Kontomanolis and said, “I could not have imagined you could have a better moment than [with] this woman, who has inspired you throughout your life and has brought you so many things.”

After thanking Aguilera for being an inspiration to many people out there, he turned to Kontomanolis, got down on one knee, and presented the engagement ring. “You’re kind, you’re beautiful, you’re loving,” Lear told Kontomanolis with tears in his eyes. “Six years ago, you proposed to me and you gave me the opportunity to say yes. Tonight, in front of Christina, I’m going to ask you the same question.”

After Kontomanolis accepted, fans – including Aguilera, screamed in celebration. The Grammy winner thanked the couple saying, “I wanted to share and dedicate this special moment to two people who have been tried and true through my life and supported me. So, I want to wish you guys the best of luck.”

She congratulated them, and after they left the stage, Aguilera, still on a high from the romantic proposal, shouted out to the audience, “All right, guys: Let’s turn this into a wedding reception! Let’s have some fun tonight!”
