Irish dance legend Michael Flatley was on the highly popular Graham Norton show in Britain last night discussing his stellar career as Lord of the Dance.

Norton asked him if he minded all the amateurs trying to emulate him with poor versions of Irish dance.

Flatley said no and said everyone should do their own thing. The Cork-based Irish American superstar looked bemused by the question.

Norton then went to the audience and asked a random group of audience members to get up and try Irish dancing.

What happened next took everyone by surprise as you can see from the video clip!
