Amy Lee Of Evanescence Engaged

Amy Lee of Evanescence announced her engagement Tuesday during a taping of an hour-long special on the Canadian music network MuchMusic.

Noticing an engagement ring on the singer's finger, host VJ Devon Soltendieck asked Lee, "I notice there's a little — well, not little, it's pretty big. There's a little rock on your finger, and I'm sorry, I have to ask about it."

"I got engaged last night," the 25-year-old singer said.
