If you enjoy your viral videos then you have probably seen the two Irish lads who were invited to perform on stage with Adele.
Those two men were musical duo Glenn Murphy and Ronan Scolard, better known to the internet as Glenn and Ronan.
Although from Dublin, Ronan has Sligo roots, his mother hails from Tubbercurry and his grandparents, Evelyn and Joe along with other relatives, still live in the Sligo town.
The last year has been a roller-coaster for Ronan. Performing on stage with Adele was a highlight but so too was appearing on the Ellen DeGeneres Show and being involved in Celtic Woman’s American tour.
“To be honest, we [Glenn and Ronan] have tried to take moments to just reflect on the past few months and realise just how fortunate we’ve been, but we both genuinely feel it’ll take much much longer for it to sink in! We’ve been touring in the US since all of that madness happened, so we expect that when we get home it’ll really start to sink in properly, and the ‘Did that really happen?’ phase will kick in,” Ronan said.
The performance with Adele, in which Ronan and Glenn were invited on stage was a very special moment.
“It really was incredible. Having gone to her concert just as two fans (albeit having had some attention with the Medley video we uploaded earlier that week), to walking on stage and performing her own songs to her and 25,000 other people – you just couldn’t have written it.
“It was probably a good thing we had absolutely no clue she was going to do invite us on stage, because it meant we had no time to freak out or be nervous about what was easily the biggest crowd of our careers to date!”
