Beyoncé helps organize surprise proposal, stops concert during 'Single Ladies'

One of Beyoncé's most well-known lyrics might be: "If you liked it, then you should have put a ring on it."

>> Read more trending stories  

The 35-year-old singer stopped her concert in St. Louis on Saturday during the popular song "Single Ladies" to allow a concertgoer to do just that -- put a ring on it.

"I think (there's) somebody I need to bring on the stage," Beyoncé said during the song, prompting unsuspecting fans to scream in the hopes that they'd be chosen to join her.

"Is it you?" she teased, pointing to one audience member. "Is it you?" she asked, pointing to another. 

Before long, a man joined Beyonce and her two dancers onstage, and she handed him the microphone.

The man, John Silver, walked toward Ashley Everett, Beyoncé's lead dancer and dance captain, and embraced her.

"I feel like it's only right to come out here in front of my hometown and show you guys what the epitome of a young woman looks like," Silver told the crowd. "I know that you think don't I express my love to you in front of everybody, so I feel like what better time than now to do it in front of (a crowd of people)? ... Will you marry me?"

The couple embraced before being congratulated by Beyoncé.

"Let's see if you can do the choreography after that," she said.

Everett, who took a few moments to collect herself, got back into formation and finished the choreography to "Single Ladies," flashing her new ring while doing the movements.

According to her website, Everett, who dropped out of Julliard to dance on tour with Beyoncé, has danced with the singer for the last 8 years and has also shared the stage with Robin Thicke, Usher, Ciara, Ne-Yo, LaToya Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Tina Turner.

Apple patent blocks iPhones from recording at concerts

Apple was awarded a U.S. patent in June for a system that can force iPhones into disabling video-recording functions at concert venues.

>> Read more trending stories  

The system uses infrared signals to send messages to the smartphones to force them to shut down video recording capabilities. Apple's patent illustration shows a phone at a concert with the words "recording disabled" on screen. 

Various artists have been outspoken about fans filming their shows, with many claiming that it spoils the experience for other fans.

During a show this summer, Adele publicly told a fan who was filming the performance: "You can enjoy it in real life, rather than through your camera ... I'd really like you to enjoy my show because there's lots of people outside that couldn't come in."

It's not known whether Apple plans to put the patent into use.

Yondr is another company with a mission to eliminate cellphone distractions at concerts.

The company creates "phone-free spaces" at events where attendees must seal their cellphones in one of the company's lockable pouches. The pouch stays locked inside the phone-free zone but unlocks once you leave it.

"If you haven't been to a phone-free show, you just don't know what you're missing. There's something about living in real life that can’t be replicated," Yondr founder Graham Dugoni told The Washington Post.

Lauryn Hill apologizes to fans after 2-hour delay at Atlanta concert

Fans, musicians and media all weighed in on Lauryn Hill’s tardiness to her recent concert in Atlanta, causing the singer’s name to trend on Twitter for much of the day Saturday.

But the one person who remained silent was the singer herself.

>> Read more trending stories  

On Sunday, in a message posted to Facebook, Hill said she is "figuring out a plan" to make it up to fans who waited more than two hours to see her perform at Chastain Park Amphitheatre on Friday. Due to her late arrival and the venue’s 11 p.m. curfew, the singer only performed for less than 40 minutes before her sound was cut off.

“I have nothing but love and appreciation for the fans in Atlanta, and regret not being able to give you a full show,” the Facebook message reads.

Hill, who's show was scheduled to start at 8 p.m. ET, took the stage around 10:20 p.m. She was forced to stop singing during her set because of a strict curfew that the venue, which is located in a residential area, enforces.

The crowd booed the singer when she first started the show and when she was forced to stop singing.

While a fan video seems to show Hill blaming her driver for her tardiness, her Facebook message makes no mention of the driver. 

Hill said she will announce details about how she plans to make it up to fans as soon as she has them.

Need Beyoncé tickets? AmEx and Uber are giving some away

Getting tickets to Beyoncé’s "Formation" World Tour has been harder than getting to the bottom of the “Becky with the good hair” controversy. Most of the shows are sold out. Unless you want to stand alone at one of the shows that still has available tickets, you’re going to have to shell out a couple hundred dollars minimum to nab a spot from which you can worship Queen Bey live.

>> Read more trending stories  

But you might be able to get around that. Wednesday -- when "Formation" kicked off in Miami -- American Express and Uber announced a partnership that gives anyone (not just card members) the chance to win two tickets to one of Beyoncé’s 21 remaining U.S. shows. Here’s how the promotion works:

On the day of the concert in a participating city, you can request the “FORMATION” view in the Uber app, using the promo code FORMATIONAMEX. You can then request a FORMATION ride, and you could receive two tickets and a round-trip UberX ride to the concert in the city. Uber and American Express have both said that the demand will be high, and getting matched with a FORMATION ride isn’t a guarantee of tickets.

>> Does Beyonce's 'Lemonade' allude to a rocky relationship with Jay-Z?

Sure, the chances of hitting the Beyoncé/Uber jackpot probably aren’t great, but it may be more likely than you being able to come up with enough money to buy your own tickets and transport to the concert, at this point. As much as it would probably feel worth it at the time, the aftermath of blowing your budget to see Beyoncé will probably be as unpleasant as it is to be Rachel Roy right now.

There’s some consolation for people who request these Uber rides and don’t end up getting Formation tickets: If you happen to have an American Express credit card and are enrolled in their Membership Rewards program, you can earn two times the rewards points when you pay for an Uber ride with your card.

>> Surprise! Beyoncé serves up 'Lemonade'; fans lose their minds

American Express isn’t the only credit card with this sort of deal. It’s always smart to check with your credit card issuer to see if they offer any discounts with a certain service or if you can maximize your rewards with certain purchases. Of course, spending for the sake of credit card rewards can be a dangerous strategy, because credit card debt is expensive and high credit card balances can kill your credit score. You can keep tabs on yours by getting your free credit report summary every 30 days on Credit.com.
