Black Eyed Peas star Fergie was stunned when her husband Josh Duhamel presented her with a prize at a perfume awards ceremony in New York on Tuesday night (24May11) - because she thought he was still at home in Los Angeles.
The singer was among the honorees at the Fragrance Foundation's FiFi Awards and flew in from California to attend the event at Manhattan's Lincoln Center.
But the star was in for a shock when she took to the stage to collect the New Celebrity Fragrance of the Year trophy for her Outspoken perfume - as her husband had secretly jetted in to New York to present her with the prize.
Duhamel left L.A. on a flight shortly after his wife to make sure she didn't suspect he was about to turn up in the Big Apple, according to New York Post gossip column Page Six.
The actor's appearance wasn't the only surprise of the night - the star-studded audience, including Mary J. Blige and Kate Walsh, was left in the dark during the ceremony after the power cut out for 10 minutes.
