X Factor Contestant Surprises His Girlfriend With Proposal

These X Factor contestants may not have gotten a "yes" from the judges, but they did get some life-changing news during their audition.

David Grey and his girlfriend Lauren Waguespack both auditioned for the singing competition in an episode that aired Wednesday. But Grey confessed to the judges that he was really there for Waguespack.

After Waguespack sang her rendition of "Teenage Dream" by Katy Perry, Grey came back on to the stage and surprised her with a ring and marriage proposal.

"I wanna tell you something, I love you more than anything in this world and it doesn't matter what anybody thinks, what the judges think, I love you forever and support you in everything you do," he said, before asking her to marry him.

Waguespack -- along with the judges and the audience members -- was thrilled when Grey got down on one knee. Her reply? "Yes!"

This isn't the first time someone has proposed marriage on live TV. In March 2013, a news reporter was surprised on air by her boyfriend's proposal, and another couple got engaged on HLN in 2012.
