Michael Flatley has broken his silence on Lord of the Dance performing at the US presidential election today in Washington DC.

The dancing troupe will take to the stage this evening at the Liberty Ball as Donald Trump becomes the 45th US president.

And while Michael won't be up there doing a jig himself, he told the Irish Independent that it is "a great honour" for him.

“We have performed for many presidents. It is always a great honour to be asked.

“This is a very special night and it is a great honour to be invited to be part of it.”

Will you be watching the Irish dancers perform? Sky News will televise the inauguration from 3pm Irish time.


Donald Trump was having a major mare trying to fill up the performance slots for his inauguration.

Obama left him with some pretty big party shoes to fill, as the soon-to-be former president was serenaded at his inauguration by the likes of Beyonce and Mary J Blige. 

After being turned down by multiple celebs for the event, Trump's team have secured a very Irish inspired set of performers. 

Michael Flatley and his world famous Lord of the Dance Irish dancing troupe will be performing for the president elect and his guests tomorrow night, reports TMZ.  

The Liberty Ball will be home to the clattering of rhythmic Irish dancing as Trump is sworn in as the 45th president of the United States. 

Trump's team has also managed to book managed to book 16-year-old opera singer and America's Got Talent contestant Jackie Evancho, along with the Radio City Rockettes and the Morman Tabernacle Choir.

I think we'd prefer Beyonce tbh. 


American talk show host Stephen Colbert was in for a treat on Friday’s The Late Show.

During the episode, he host introduced a performance from none other than the dance floor king: Michael Flatley.

The Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games star was on hand to deliver a performance that we’re still trying to come to terms with- those moves have left us speechless.

If his previous shows are any indication, Stephen himself loves a good dance sess but he had never seen anything like this before. 

Aside from performing the odd jig at his desk, the US TV personality received impromptu lessons from his guests. This included MacArthur Genius grant winner Michelle Dorrance and choreographer Christopher Wheeldon. 

The Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games troupe, however, pulled a Magic Mike stunt with their performance.

We will never look at Michael the same way again. Ever.


Michael Flatley was joined by gorgeous girls Grace Prendergast, 4, and Ava Ann Barry, 5, in support of the HB Hazelbrook Farm Ice Cream Fundays Campaign in aid of Down Syndrome Ireland.

Michael is now part of a long-list of Irish celebrities who have come out to support this wholly worthy cause. Others include Pierce Brosnan, Miriam O’Callaghan, Rachel Allen, and Ryan Turbridy.

Last weekend, Irish actress and presenter Caroline Morahan was also raising awareness of the campaign.

“I’m delighted to support such a fun and special campaign to help raise much-needed funds for Down Syndrome Ireland… Hosting an ice cream party is a great way to enjoy some quality time with your family and friends while helping raise money for the worthy cause,” Caroline said at the time.

The Ice Cream Funday is a really enjoyable way to raise money for something so important.

You can invite your friends and family over and force-feed them ice cream till they drop (and who can say no to that!). In return, simply ask your guests to donate what they can towards Down Syndrome Ireland.

To get your Ice Cream Funday pack call 1890 373737, or register online at Down Syndrome Ireland. The pack includes ice cream vouchers too.
