We know what you're thinking, but yes this is happening, in a way.

Despite Joe Dolan being dead for some nine years ago now, the legendary singer will be taking part in a duet of sorts with Nathan Carter. Don't worry, he won't be a hologram, the stunt is set to be done using archive footage of Dolan. The pair will sing the Mullingar crooner's hit Make Me an Island' and will be accompanied by the RTÉ Concert Orchestra.

This week would have marked Joe Dolan's 77th birthday, and Wagon Wheel singer Nathan will join a panel to discuss the enduring legacy of Joe Dolan on the Irish music scene alongside Joe’s brother Ben Dolan and Sunday World journalist Eddie Rowley.

If this sounds like your kind of thing, you can apply to be there in studio as two tickets to this week's show are up for grabs, but.... they're going to make you work for it. You will need to post a video of yourself singing your favourite Joe Dolan classic to The Late Late Show’s Facebook account or on Twitter using #latelatejoe.

If you don't want the world to see, you can send the video to [email protected] You have until Thursday morning, so gets those pipes warmed up.
