What a voice! Watch your back, Adele - there's a new powerhouse vocalist in town and she's 12-year old, Allie Sherlock, from Cork.

Fledgling Irish songstress Allie Sherlock brought the house down when she performed on "The Ellen Show".

The 12-year-old Cork native previously refused to appear on the show, as she wanted to enjoy her music "without pressure" according to her Dad, Mark.

No stranger to the spotlight, the Douglas, County Cork, musician is well known around the city streets of Cork and Dublin, where she routinely attracts huge crowds.

Producers from "The Ellen Show" recently got in touch after they saw a video of Sherlock performing an Ed Sheeran cover on her acoustic guitar which went viral around the world. Due to her young age, Sherlock and her father agreed to wait.

The moment has now come, and to no surprise, Sherlock even received a standing ovation.

Ellen DeGeneres interviewed the youth after she performed a rendition of Adelle's hit "A Million Years Ago".

An awe-struck Ellen DeGeneres asked Sherlock what it felt like when people don't stop to listen when they hear her sing in the street.

"How do they not see how special you are? What does that feel like when people just keep walking?" The chat-show host asked.

Feet firmly planted on the ground, Sherlock retaliated, "It's grand if they don't stop. They obviously have other things to do."

It wasn't the first time Ellen has had beloved young Irish talent on her show. She previously invited 17-year-old superfan Eimear O’Tuathail from Ireland to LA so that the Galway girl could perform on her show.

Sherlock's dad previously told the Evening Echo newspaper that his daughter primarily wants to work in childcare.

"My main thing is that Allie continues to be Allie because she's a child," he said.

"She enjoys her singing and as soon as it isn't fun anymore, that would be the end of it. Her plan is to do childcare, she would love that. Music is second. She might go to college and maybe head into town busking and earn herself a few quid,” he adds.

With increasing interest surrounding her vocal talents, she is now working on music projects with Los Angeles-based producers. The future evidently holds bright things for this young star.
