Watching the Late Late Show tonight, one might have been forgiven for thinking they time travelled back a decade.
Anyone remember the intro: 'Tonight Matthew, I'm going to be...' ?
Because this week’s programme - called Reach for the Stars - was turned into a singing challenge in aid of charity
RTE's Eileen Whelan belted out the Dusty Springfield classic 'You don't have to say you love me' dressed as the 60's pop icon, bouffant hair not excluded.
Her chosen charity was the Irish children's charity Laura Lynn.
Former sportsman Senator Eamonn Coughlan also took to the stage with his rendition of 'Cheer Up, Sleepy Jean' from The Monkees in aid of suicide awareness with Console.
He has publicly spoken out about his own battle with depression in the past.
Children's TV presenter - and some might remember the face from the band 'Six' - Emma O'Driscoll was unrecognisable as rockabilly Imelda May with the tune 'Big bad handsome man'.
Her efforts were towards raising money for the Baby Max Wings of Love Fund, set up to raise awareness and facilities for children with Meningitis B & Meningicoccal Septicaemia.
Not missing out on the fun was author Cathy Kelly who came through the curtain as Marilyn Monroe and 'Diamonds are a girl's best friend' for her chosen charity UNICEF.
While many tuned in to spot the most famous car on TV - KITT from Knight Rider - the movements, outfits and warblings of these four were to be first endured.
Let’s hope a lot of money was raised.
