Nine year old Liam Nelson from Dunleer pacticing his microphone technique ahead of his appearance in tonight's Late Late Toy Show.
The cool dude pictured above is nine year old Liam Nelson who is in 4th class at Scoil Naomh Buithe in Tenure and lives who with his parents Sarah Gardiner and Will Nelson in Dunleer.
Like most nine year-olds, almost the whole population in fact, Liam just loves the Late, Late Toy Show and he is getting super-excited the closer it gets.
The reason Liam is sooo excited, even more than most other people, is that he is actually going to appear on the show!
Even at a young age Liam realised that he was a lucky boy to have the life he does and wanted to help others who are less fortunate.

Earlier this year, in May, he completed a 5km run at the Dunleer AC track and raised over €1,200 for Drogheda Homeless Aid.
Liam submitted a video audition, along with over 3,000 children from around the country and was one of just 50 from that number who were called to the RTE studios for auditions a few weeks ago.
He was so excited when he got the call telling him that he had made it to the Late Late Toy Show … the most magical night of the year!
The lucky nine-year-old loves music, in particular hop hop and during tonight’s Toy Show appearance he will be in the book corner and will also be showcasing his talent for rapping.
Not only does Liam write his own raps but he is also an aspiring DJ.
He attends Bright Stars Drama School weekly in the Barbican Centre which, along with boxing and swimming classes keeps him very busy.
Oh, he also loves gaming on his PS4 and playing basketball. Phew! Good luck Liam, see ya on the TV!
