Danielle Bush, a Utah Jazz dancer, had a massive surprise during one of her performances, which has now won the hearts of many online. The dancer faced a nightmare when she was unaware of the changed choreography while in front of a live audience. However, she went on to become engaged during said performance.

As Utah Jazz beat Charlotte Hornets on Monday night, the performers danced as they had practiced. However, the song abruptly changed to Bruno Mars' hit song, Marry You. Danielle Bush's fellow dancers knew the choreography, even as she stood shocked, attempting to copy them.

Her boyfriend finally entered the court and asked her to marry him. Appearing happy and dazed, she said yes.

Utah Jazz dancer's proposal goes viral

The surprise proposal was coordinated by Utah Jazz's dance team director, Ashley Kelson. In an interview, she said:

"I wanted to make it big and special for her for sure. Making it a part of the routine was so much fun."

Kelson mentioned that getting the Utah dancer away from her teammates was tricky. She had scheduled Danielle Bush for a community event while her teammates practiced the surprise choreography.

Kelson added:

"It was all to surprise her and make the moment special. So I know as a dancer, you're kind of like, 'What is going to come next?' It was just a highlight and make her day special."
