Irish singer-songwriter Dermot Kennedy performed his hit song “Paradise" with production trio Meduza on Ellen Degeneres’ US talk show ‘Ellen’ on March 22.
While it was his first time performing "Paradise" on television, it was Dublin native Kennedy's second time appearing on "Ellen."
Released in October 2020, "Paradise" was Kennedy's first new single since the debut of his first studio album "Without Fear" in 2019.

Less than a month after its official release, "Paradise" went on to top the Irish Music Charts:

Kennedy has been enjoying a steady rise to fame since his humble beginnings busking on Dublin’s Grafton Street and has gone on to perform on the main stage at Ireland’s massive Electric Picnic music festival.

Upon the release of his debut album "Without Fear" in 2019, Kennedy mounted a US tour that was ultimately halted last year when the global health crisis took hold. However, the Dublin native was able to perform a sell-out show at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall just before pausing the tour.
So this happened last night. Milestone after milestone. It’s never anything but beautiful with you New York. Thank you so much ♥ X— Dermot Kennedy (@DermotKennedy) March 6, 2020
