The University of Kentucky’s acoUstiKats took their Wednesday night trip to the bottom two of The Sing-Off as a wake-up call and charged back with a Thursday night performance that helped keep them safe in a showdown with three of the best groups in the field — Ten, Street Corner Renaissance and The Filharmonic.

They also celebrated a life milestone with one of their members who had a little surprise at the end of their performance.

After the acoUstiKats performed Amazed by Lonestar, bass Mike Owens took a moment to propose to his girlfriend Maggie Blair, who he met at UK while singing in the acoUstiKats.

She said “Yes.”
