The X Factor USA Contestant Proposes To Girlfriend On-Stage, Simon Cowell Still Rejects (WATCH)

Romance sweeps the troubled talent show

By On

The X Factor USA saw an on-stage marriage proposal last night, as a super-dedicated boyfriend not only auditioned as well but then ran on-stage after her tryout to get down on one knee.

David Gray failed to impress judges Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio with his performance, and when girlfriend Lauren Waguespack followed with Katy Perry's 'Teenage Dream', he stormed the stage with a very important question.

As friends and family looked on from the sidelines in bewilderment, he professed his love before kneeling down and asking if she'd take his hand in marriage.

“It doesn’t matter what anybody thinks, or what the judges think,” he gushed. “I love you forever, and I’ll support you with whatever you do… Will you marry me?”

Judges Demi, Kelly and Paulina leapt to their feet in excitement, and a smile was even seen on Simon's face when she said yes.

The celebrations went on until Simon bought the focus back to the task in hand... and told her he was giving her a firm no, as far as the contest is concerned.

The X Factor USA has been plagued by dwindling ratings and poor reviews so far this season, leading to speculation that it could be axed at the end of the year. Last year's winner, Tate Stevens, barely scraped the Top 20 with his debut album, and previous victor Melanie Amaro hasn't even released her LP yet.

Watch the big proposal below.
