Scottish-born singer and nephew of Peter Capaldi, Lewis Capaldi, has won hearts all over the nation with his HILARIOUS social media antics and voice of a gravelly angel.

His new album, Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent, is out May 17 and features his UK Number 1 platinum-selling single Someone You Loved. It's officially the longest running number one single of the past 25 years, so he's hit the big time.

Part of the reason why he's found chart success is his campaigning on Twitter and Instagram, using absolutely gas photos of himself sporting various eccentric sunglasses and filming his strange antics.

If you haven't seen the thread of him having to unclog his toilet, you've missed out. Our personal fave is the stream of himself listening to Ariana Grande's latest album, which was set to knock his tune out of the charts.

In fact, his song made it back into the top 10, reaching number one and staying there. We're SO glad it did, because this down-to-earth chap with a love for Tinder deserves it.

After supporting Picture This at their five consecutive 3Arena nights recently, Capaldi is coming back to Dublin for his very own 2020 arena tour. 

Sunday March 8, 2020 at Dublin's 3Arena sold out in minutes, as well as the rest of the UK tour dates, but our boy has hooked us up with an extra date on March 9, 2020.

He's also initiating his special LIVELIVE programme to support fans experiencing emotional difficulties and have concerns about attending shows.


There'll be a team at each venue who are expertly trained and qualified in assisting with panic, anxiety or any other concerns fans may have. Capaldi created the scheme after his own experiences with anxiety had a dramatic effect on him.

Speaking about the idea, the singer said; "I really wanted to put something in place to help those people feel comfortable and offer them support to allow them to experience the shows."

The 22-year-old's tunes have been streamed over 600,000 times, and the youngster was shortlisted for the BBC Critics Choice Award. Tickets from €37.35 are on sale now via Ticketmaster, grab yours now.

Katy Perry is officially the nicest human being on Earth. Prepare yourself, this story is an absolute tear-jerker.

The pop singer is currently on tour and had a concert set in Australia, but one fan could not attend.

Little Grace had bought tickets to see the show with her mum over a year ago, but unfortunately, she’s been battling a brain tumour all year.

Her sister, Tiana, immediately took action and was determined to get Grace the concert she had been dreaming of for so long.

“RETWEET PLEASE! my baby sister is meant to attend @katyperry concert in Adelaide this year but was diagnosed with a 6cm Brain tumour and has been battling all year,

“Grace has love been Katy’s biggest fan since she was 3, please help us try and get in contact with @katyperry,” Tiana tweeted on July 24th.

The Internet came to her aid and eventually, the news reached Katy Perry herself.

Just yesterday, the popstar came down to Grace’s house and gave her a private concert!

Katy introduced herself to the whole family, commending Tiana for shaving her head to raise money for her sister’s treatment.

The singer also said that little Grace was ‘the first person’ she had ever given a private concert in their home.

In the video, Katy is seen laughing and hanging out with all the kids and singing her hit song “Firework” while holding Grace’s hand.

Grace and Tiana’s mum thanked Katy and gave her a big hug for doing this for her daughter.

‘The power of the Internet’ that Katy captioned her photo can truly be attributed to the power of sisterhood.

Tiana probably wanted to cheer up her little sis in any way she could, and her constant posting with the hashtag #helpgracemeetkatyperry spread like wildfire.

We wish Grace the best of luck with her recovery and are so glad that she has such an awesome sister and supportive family surrounding her.



There's nothing like social media posts to evoke serious envy among many of us, and it looks like this one has done its job admirably.

After coming home to a seriously festive surprise courtesy of her other half, one girl named Grace decided to share a snap of her spoils.

And we are feeling pretty damn put out right now.

"He knows that I'm always cold and that I love Christmas lights so he surprised me when I got back from vacation," she wrote in reference to her (perfect) boyfriend.

Sharing three pictures of his thoughtful gesture, Grace revealed that she had been gifted 12 pairs of uber-fluffy socks, a fleecy throw, a hape of chocolate and a fairy light display… all because her boyfriend is absolute GOALS.

"These socks are for when your feet are cold, and I'm not around for you to put them under me," Alex wrote in one of his notes.

Commenting on the post which has racked up more than 12,000 likes, one Twitter user wrote: "I am in love with this. Thankful that boys like this exist to love girls this way."

Countless other girls decided to tag their boyfriend in Grace's post for, you know, no real reason…

Excuse us while we make a phonecall.


Coronas frontman Danny O'Reilly comes from family bursting with musical talent, and we were given just a taster of it today, thanks to RTÉ.

The singer, accompanied by his sister Róisin O and cousin Aoife Scott, recorded a beautiful version of the Irish folk song Grace at Kilmainham Gaol recently, as part of RTÉ's Centenary celebration.

RTÉ released a short clip of the recording today, and it's simply beautiful – though there's no sign of Danny and Róisín's ma, Mary Black.

You've no doubt heard Grace at the odd trad sesh or pub lock-in, but what you might not know is that it only dates back to 1985, and was written in honour of Grace Gifford, who married Joseph Plunkett in Kilmainham Gaol just hours before his execution for his part in the Easter Rising.

So it's a very fitting tribute indeed.

RTÉ will show the full version of the song on Monday night during an evening of music which also features  Imelda May, Jack L, Gavin James, The High Kings, Colm Wilkinson, Iarla Ó Lionáird, Sharon Shannon, Dónal Lunny, John Sheahan, Celine Byrne, and Seo Linn.

Centenary kicks off on RTÉ One on Easter Monday at 9.35pm, with a live broadcast from the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre.
