Irish busking sensation visits Ellen DeGeneres Show
Irish busker Allie Sherlock swapped the streets of Dublin and Cork for the biggest stage in US TV when she was invited on to the Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Many people will be aware of the incredible talent that has been uncovered in Ireland in the past few years, with several of Allie’s busking videos going viral online.
The 12-year-old’s career is progressing at a rapid pace. She has been in America to record with One Republic lead singer Ryan Tedder.
The charming youngster visited Ellen to perform on the show, where she sang a beautiful rendition of Adele’s megahit A Million Years Ago.
She then joined Ellen on the sofa to discuss her success so far.
Sherlock admitted it was an honour to be compared to Adele, and said she is a huge fan of the British superstar.
Allie talked about her experiences busking on the streets of Ireland.
She said she had to beg her dad to let her go out to sing on the streets, and that he is always close by in the crowd keeping an eye on her.
Allie also revealed that when she travels to America, she subconsciously adopts an American accent, and gave her best impression for the crowd.
Ellen was full of praise for the young singer, and ended the interview by bringing out a gift to encourage people to tip Allie when they see her busking on the streets.
