Hozier wowed viewers with a stripped-back version of Simon and Garfunkel's iconic track Bridge over Troubled Water on RTÉ Does Comic Relief.

The 30-year-old Bray singer performed the stunning song in the empty surroundings of Croke Park, a venue which can usually hold close to 80,000 fans, and dedicated his performance to those who lost their lives during the Covid-19 crisis.

Fans took to Twitter in their droves to praise the star for his flawless rendition of the well-known track.

One viewer praised Hozier for delivering an "absolutely stunning" version of the song.

RTÉ sports presenter Des Cahill hailed the emotional performance as "awesome".

Another viewer suggested that an album of all of the live music featured on RTÉ over the last few weeks should be released, while hailing Hozier's track as "pure quality".

One fan said Hozier's voice is "pure haunting" and we couldn't agree more!

 The Blizzards' Niall Breslin said he thinks the chart-topper is "the best vocalist in the world right now."

Hozier also showed he was a great sport on the night by getting "joke lessons" from Aisling Bea.
