A member of One Direction on his way to the White House was not on our St. Patrick’s Day bingo card, but we’d love to see it.
Yes, Niall Horan just happened to spend his March 17th with President Joe Biden, just like you.
The Irish singer-songwriter, 29, appeared in front of a room full of politicians and very important people looking smart as ever in a white shirt and black waistcoat.
With a beaming smile, Niall showed off his singing talents with his acoustic guitar and two backing musicians sitting on a stage with both American and Irish flags behind him.
The 1D star also shared a sweet video with President Biden, 80, on Instagram, and it looked like they hit it like a house on fire!
‘Hello people. It is me. I just want to wish you a very happy St. Happy Patrick’s Day from the White House, from me!”
The 46th US president then stuck his head in the frame.
‘And I! I’m here in the White House, I visit here from time to time,” President Biden laughed.
“I’m glad he’s here, I’m glad he’s here,” he praised Niall, putting his arm around him and patting his shoulder.
Niall sang his latest single Heaven for the President and his guests, the lead track from his upcoming album The Show.
And although he admitted he was “scared” of the coveted gig, Niall certainly didn’t let it show.
In a video posted on Twitter, he laughed with the small crowd: “I’m not nervous, you are.
“I don’t think I’ve ever been so scared in my entire life.”
However, the Slow Hands hitmaker got plenty of laughs from the room as he instantly won everyone over with his Irish charm.
Ahead of his visit to the White House, Niall said it was an “honour” to be invited.
A day earlier, he shared the news on Twitter, writing: “It’s an honor to be invited and represent my country. I’m looking forward to performing tomorrow and St. Patrick’s Day at the White House.”
Of course, it wasn’t the first time a high-profile star visited the president’s residence, and it certainly won’t be the last.
Teen superstar Olivia Rodrigo appeared in the White House briefing room in 2021 to promote vaccinations against Covid-19.
Last May, South Korean K-pop icons BTS also discussed Asian inclusion and representation during their own visit.
