Whoever said Adele concerts were dull has clearly never actually been to one. Since flawlessly shutting down complaints that she was "too boring" to perform at Glastonbury earlier this year, the ballsy ballad queen has used her stage to bring attention to important issues including music industry abuse and plus-size stereotypes. And never forget the time she turned the passenger seat of James Corden's Range Rover into a platform for what somehow remains one of the most underrated feminist moments in the history of music despite being viewed over 100 million times on YouTube. This week Adele continued her awesome streak by helping two gay men get engaged during a concert in Denmark. 

Mid-way through her performance, the singer pulled two fans on stage. One of them dropped to one knee and pulled out a ring, the other accepted it, and Adele had the best reaction out of all of them. "That's amazing," she said. "I'm going to cry!" She then asked, "Should I be your surrogate if you have children? I'd love to have a baby with someone Swedish." Watch another fan's video of the proposal below.
