You have to see it, to understand just how great it really is.
It's Michael Jackson like you've never heard before.
Irish trad band, the Kilfenora Céilí Band, appeared on Irish TV on Friday night and performed their version of 'Smooth Criminal' with fiddles, banjos, tin whistles and other traditional Irish instruments we're not quite sure of the names for.
Not only that, but they were also joined by World Champion Irish dancing duo, The Gardiner Brothers, dressed in black and white with those famous MJ trilby hats.
The whole thing worked surprisingly well and got us thinking it could be a new Riverdance in the making...
Irish viewers were enamoured by the performance...
