And is invited to perform with his idol in Las Vegas

You'll remember the cheeky grin of 9-year-old Aidan McCann from the most recent season of Virgin Media One's Ireland's Got Talent, where he amazed the judges and viewers with his sleight of hand.

Ellen, who is a huge fan of magic, was eager to get the Kildare youngster on to do his thing and yesterday her wish was granted, as was his.

Aidan bounced into the studio, taking it all in his stride, blowing the host and audience away with a card & CD trick - not to mention his endearing smirk and "small hands" revelation.

To top things off, Ellen had a massive surprise lined up for her new pal revealing a video message from Aidan's idol, world-renowned magician, and America's Got Talent winner, Shin Lim.

The Canadian-American star invited Aidan to perform at his new show in Las Vegas, describing him as "incredible".

His jaw hit the floor!

Here's Shin Lim in action on America's Got Talent: The Champions (which he also won):

Check out Aidan's video in full at the top of the page.
