Dermot Kennedy surprising Michael Moloney on The Late Late Toy Show was everything we needed and more.

Teenager Michael Moloney is a huge Dermot Kennedy fan and performed a sublime version of Dermot's Giants, which he dedicated to his late father.

Mid-chorus, in came Dermot to marvel at Michael's totally assured rendition. "It was magic," said the chart-topper after his latest duet.

And he didn't come empty-handed, telling Michael he has a day's recording in Windmill Lane lined up. It sounded like it would be the first of many.

You made our year Dermot.
