LOUISVILLE, KY. (CNN) – A love-struck Kentucky couple became the center of attention at a Justin Timberlake concert Sunday night, after a wedding proposal they’ll never forget.
WDRB’s Valerie Chinn talked to the happy pair and tells us how Timberlake helped make it possible.
Justin Timberlake: Josh called me earlier he has something he wants to tell you.
In front of thousands of screaming concert-goers Joshua Clemons got on one knee and asked his girlfriend, Kim Martin, to marry him during the Justin Timberlake concert.
How did you plan this?
Joshua Clemons, Proposed on Stage: When I heard Justin was coming in – I think June when it was announced – I immediately started trying to get tickets, I’m a huge fan I have been.
I knew Kim was a big fan.
It wasn’t easy to pull this off.
After almost 100 e-mails and phone calls, Clemons finally got in touch with Justin’s manager to make his proposal to remember happen.
Joshua Clemons, Proposed on Stage: Friday, we finally caught each other on the phone and they told me Justin had a big plan and wanted to know if I was ready to do it big and I said definitely.
This video has now been shared all over social media.
The couple is hearing from friends they haven’t seen in years.
It’s all surreal for martin.
Kim Martin, Said Yes: I was just like there is no way, now way this happening right now and I got up there and it was and I was in total shock I couldn’t do anything but just stand there and oh my goodness.
Martin is now proudly showing off her new sparkly ring.
Clemons’ daughter Mia was also at the concert.
They got autographs from JT and got to meet him backstage and say he’s really down to earth.
Kim Martin, Said Yes: He was just very involved in this. I was very surprised he took initiative to help him so much and the way he talked with us, the way he talked with Mia.
Anything is possible, you never know until you try.
