“Dancing With the Stars” contestant Noah Galloway decided to seize the moment during week 9’s semifinals show Monday (May 11) by proposing to his girlfriend Jamie Boyd on the live broadcast.
Just before the proposal, Galloway performed an emotional Viennese waltz with his professional partner Sharna Burgess, earning him a 36 out of 40. Judge Len Goodman called the dance Galloway’s best yet and Julianne Hough commented on how romantic the routine was.
But the dance wasn’t the most romantic part of Galloway’s segment. Love was definitely in the air as Galloway popped the question to Boyd — who happily said yes — backstage in front of host Erin Andrews.
There wasn’t a dry eye in the house — Demi Moore was crying! — after watching Galloway’s story unfold in the pre-dance video package that featured family, friends and supporters, including actor William Shatner, talking about Galloway’s strength and courage.
