The Irish duo, who became internet sensations after a video of them performing a medley of Adele's songs went viral, performed on the Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday and were treated to a very special gift.

Ronan Scolard and Glenn Murphy had uploaded a video of themselves performing a medley of Adele's songs and on the second night of her two Dublin gigs she invited the shocked and surprised duo on stage to perform.

They went viral with their stunning, emotional effort and were invited to make an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday.

Scolard posted about their dream gig, saying he and Murphy were "absolutely buzzing" as they boarded their flight to LA for the high-profile performance.

The St Patrick's Day special saw the boys perform their Adele mash-up to an impressed audience.

Speaking with the famous chat show host, the pair revealed that many of their friends had joked about their chances of being called on stage when they were invited to the show by Adele.

The boys admitted that they never expected that it would actually happen, however, with Scolard adding that they were "just excited to be there."

They spoke about the moment they were called on stage with Murphy saying: "We both were like 'What!?' and the next thing we knew we were running down these stairs, like five flights of stairs, I have never cursed as much in my entire life. Ronan was so cool and I was like 'Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God."

"I was trying to be calm for the both of us, being like 'right, there's no time for nerves here'. But then, prior to that we had seen the likes of Bono, The Edge, Colin Farrell, Hozier, sitting in the rows just literally in front of us, and that started to sink in and I was like 'oh no, there's a need to be nervous here, this is scary'," Scolard added.

Before they took to the stage to perform their medley Ellen surprised them with a pair of tricolour underpants with the words 'Ellen loves Ireland' emblazoned on the bum.
