Dermot Kennedy has said he reckons Paul Mescal could have a successful music career and admits "his voice is incredible".

The 28-year-old chart-topper, who recently teamed-up with the Normal People star for a one-off gig at the Natural History Museum in London, said he thinks the 24-year-old actor "can do anything".

Speaking to The Sun, Kennedy said: "His voice is incredible. He's never done that before in his life, that’s the most admirable thing."

"Even knowing how to sing into a microphone is something you learn over time. The fact that he went for it is so cool."

"I feel that guy can do anything," he continued. "He's not in a rush to do a music career right now but I’d love to be a moving part in someone else’s grand dream."

Opening up about how their paths crossed, Kennedy explained how he checked in with Mescal following the success of Normal People.

"The whole world was losing their minds over him in Normal People. I sent him a message just randomly saying hey and hoping he was doing well. He shot to mega stardom quite suddenly."

"When someone gets that much notoriety that quickly, there is an assumption that everything is perfect, so I just sent a message to see if he was cool."

"That was it for a few months then the idea of the show came up."
