Linda Gets Lucky again as she jumps on stage to sing Daft Punk hit at award night

SHE went viral with her cover of Get Lucky, now people can't get enough of Linda Martin.

The singer took to the stage for an impromptu performance of Daft Punk's hit tune at the Restaurant Of The Year Awards on Monday night.

Since performing the song on RTE's Saturday Night Show 10 days ago, almost 100,000 people have flocked to YouTube and RTE to catch her performance.

Although she received some negative feedback following the performance from online critics, she has been overwhelmed by the positive contributions.

Nile Rodgers, who co-wrote the song with Daft Punk, was one of those to lend his support to Linda and said her covering their song was the ultimate form of flattery.

On Monday night, Linda proved that she has no regrets about the move and performed the hit for the second time in public.

The former Eurovision winner was one of 800 guests at the awards ceremony in the Burlington Hotel, which was hosted by presenter and close friend Brendan O'Connor.

"The performance was not planned at all and everyone went mad when she got up on the stage," a source told the Herald.

"Get Lucky was the backing music for one of the awards and Brendan asked would she get up to sing it for us and she did.

"There was a huge reaction and it really got the crowd going," added the source.
