Meet the Singer Who Performed a Romantic Serenade For Becca on The Bachelorette

LAS VEGAS, NV - AUGUST 15:  Richard Marx performs during his debut of

The Bachelorette's third episode was full of equal parts drama and romance. In addition to highlighting the building animosity between professional model Jordan and chicken suit-wearing David, the episode finally reveals who goes to the hospital drenched in blood: also David. He falls out of his bunk bed and lands on his face, busting his nose and lip (Jordan helpfully notes, "chickens can't fly"). But enough about all that — let's get to Becca and Chris's sweet date, shall we?

Becca whisks the 30-year-old sales trainer away on a one-on-one date to Capitol Records in LA, where she's arranged for a private meeting with musician Richard Marx (pictured above). The singer-songwriter, 54, is perhaps best known for his 1989 hit "Right Here Waiting," which he performed an acoustic version of for Chris and Becca right there in the studio.

He even made both of them sing some of the song, which was both adorable and a confirmation that Becca and Chris won't be ditching The Bachelorette for American Idol anytime soon. (The moment is still really freakin' cute though, don't get me wrong.)

After jamming out together, Richard had them pen some romantic lyrics for a song themselves. The moment gave Chris the opportunity to break down some of his emotional barriers and truly open up to Becca, which they bonded over during dinner later that night. While their newfound spark was definitely exciting, Bachelor Nation had some funny thoughts about the episode's musical stylings to share on Twitter.
