Yup, with much of the nation glued to their television sets to see what very much remains a much-watch programme, understandably plenty of viewers were taking to social media to share their initial thoughts and feelings.

With the hashtag #latelatetoyshow trending with aplomb, adorable four year old Lila Daramola from Sallins, Co Kildare, got the show on the road.

However, the act that succeeded her was really something rather special. Step forward a certain absolutely adorable young boy, who arrived on set in a bat mobile.

Yup, the kids, the music, the choreography, the costumes, Ryan Tubridy as a crab in a top hat and Converse... there was something for everyone.
Suffice to say, we were utterly glued to our screens.
