She said yes.

Newly crowned “America’s Got Talent” winner Michael Grimm has followed through on a pledge to propose to groupie turned gal pal Lucy Zolcerova – popping the question on national television.

“She’s been there for me. Once you find that good woman you hang on to her,” the 30-year-old bluesman said Friday on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” moments before fishing out a ring from his back pocket and kneeling in front Zolcerova.

“I want you to be my wife. Will you marry me?” Grimm said to a roar from the show’s studio audience.

“Yes,” she said, with the pair then locking lips onstage.

Following the “Ellen” appearance, Zolcerova, 31, told People mag the newly engaged couple planned to hold a more private celebration.

“We're locking the doors and turning off the phones, and we won't be bothered by anybody else,” she told People. “We'll be ordering some pizza in.”

Zolcerova said she met Grimm three years ago after watching him perform and her “soul mate” has been talking about wanting to marry her in as many years.

“I can't imagine myself with anybody else,” she told People.
