Aguilera invited the two, Ben Lear and Mike Kontomanolis onto the onstage and said to the audience “I want to share this with you guys”. “I have a really special surprise that’s happening tonight.”
With tears in his eyes, 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 whole life and has brought you so many things.” After he thanked Aguilera for “being an inspiration to not only everybody here, but to him,” Lear turned back to Kontomanolis, got down on one knee and pulled an engagement ring out of his pocket and said “You’re kind, you’re beautiful, you’re loving, “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, Aguilera squealed, “Oh, my God! Congratulations!”
