Jon Bon Jovi is a great guy, and we imagine a pretty great wedding guest (he's even walked a fan down the aisle before) but one Miami wedding appeared to make him very uncomfortable.

According to Daily Mail, Bon Jovi was attending the Florida wedding of bride and groom, Jennifer and Charlie, when Lourdes Valentin (who was singing at the wedding) began belting out his 1986 single "Livin' on a Prayer" — and she tried hard to coax him into joining her onstage.

The moment was captured on video and uploaded to YouTube by Cool Coconut Studios, but it's uncomfortable to watch.

It's pretty obvious that Bon Jovi does not want to get onstage and sing out his tune and would rather just be left to enjoy the wedding in peace, and this is something that has made the internet very, very angry.


The comment section of the video is filled with angry comments that call the behavior of those hosting the wedding "rude" and "tasteless."

"This was so painful to watch. Poor Jovi," Eric commented.

TheSacko echoed these thoughts, writing, "I never seen someone so uncomfortable at a wedding before. If you wanted him to sing, then pay him. Otherwise don't call him out like that and just let him enjoy the wedding and activities."

"Ugh, don't play an artist's song when he's trying to chill at a wedding reception," cifan wrote. I'm sure he would have appreciated just having the night off rather than feel obligated to sing one of his toughest songs cold through a crap PA & mic for free just to not be rude to the wedding couple."

Michael L. Edmonds also commented on how gracious Bon Jovi had been in getting up on stage, but he really felt for him. Edmonds wrote, "What a gracious man, what total rude idiots hosting the wedding. The bride and groom should be ashamed of themselves. You tell the band, "Don't put my guests on the spot, in an uncomfortable position by playing one of their songs "By playing a Bon jovi [sic] song, all eyes would naturally be on him, expecting him to sing. You don't put your guests on the spot to sing for his supper. Rude, Rude, Rude, Crude, tasteless."

It's clear that the internet thinks this move was classless, but what do you think? Should the wedding band have avoided playing Bon Jovi's song entirely? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below.
