Two Irish men who made an internet splash by singing their version of Adele songs have been guests on the Ellen DeGeneres show in the US.

Glenn Murphy and Ronan Scolard, who are from Dublin, were also asked up on stage by the 'Hello' singer during her concerts at the 3Arena.

"When we got there we saw our seats and they were really far from the stage", Glenn said.

"Then later on in the concert she said 'so I saw this video yesterday' and when we heard the word 'video' we went 'OK, this might be it!".

"There was Bono, The Edge, Colin Farrell and Hozier sitting in the rows just literally in front of us, so that started to sink in and I was like 'Oh no, there's a need to be nervous here'" Ronan added.

A video of the pair singing a mash-up of the singer's hits went viral, being viewed almost 700,000 times on YouTube. 

While on the show, host DeGeneres also surprised the two with every item from the show's giftshop - as well as Tricolour underwear, which read: 'Ellen loves Ireland'.

They also performed their songs following the interview.

Two women who were in the audience also won a trip to the Park Hotel in Kenmare as part of the show's St Patrick's Day celebrations.

This is not the first time DeGeneres has taken an interest in the Irish. Back in January she interviewed actress Saoirse Ronan, and made a point of making sure people pronounced her name correctly.
