A young girl from Galway was flown into LA this week to meet and perform a song for her idol – Ellen Degeneres.

Seventeen year old Eimear O'Tuathail appeared on the host’s hit TV show during which she talked about her excitement of being in the city and performed her song ‘Hey Ellen.’

On the show, Eimear told Ellen she wanted to see a real palm tree, try 'really fancy drinks' at Starbucks and pick up EOS lip balm (because they’re “really expensive” in Ireland) before singing. After her performance, Ellen surprised Eimear with several gifts including the pink drink from Starbucks she mentioned, a basket of the lip balm and a cheque for $10,000 for college.

She really is very sweet and it's no wonder Ellen told her "I like you more and more":
