5 Times Fans Wowed Their Music Heroes On Stage
Good afternoon to everyone except that girl who said the N-word on stage at Kendrick Lamar!
Seeing your favourite artists live can be one of those thrilling, once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
For the following fans, however, these experiences were heightened tenfold when they were invited on stage by the very artist or band whose show they were attending -- and just happened to absolutely slay their impromptu performance, often leaving their musical icons with their jaw on the floor.
From Michael Bublé to Foo Fighters and everyone in between, here are five magical moments when fans totally killed it on stage.
Spying Brisbane local Nathan Testa's sign that read, "Missed school. In the s*** now. Can I play Growin' Up with you?", Springsteen couldn't help but pause the show to drop some sage advice on the youngster.
"When I was your age I got my first guitar. I brought it home and realised it wasn't about how well you played it, it's how good you look doing it," he told Testa, adding, "So, I got in front of the mirror and I tried out some different poses. Let me give you a couple..."
After Testa shredded on the guitar, the rockstar declared, "I have seen the future of rock 'n' roll, and his name is Nathan Testa!"
Funnily enough, Testa had actually appeared on stage with Springsteen once before -- when he was just 11 years old!
When Sam Hollyman's mother brought him to a Michael Bublé concert in Birmingham for his 15th birthday, he had no idea what was in store for him.
As his mother rushed to the front of the stage, she told the singer he should duet with young Sam. "Are you telling me or are you asking me?" joked Bublé, before inviting him on stage to sing "Feeling Good" by Nina Simone.
Slaying the tune to Buble's pleasant surprise, the singer told the crowd, "Oh, Sam can sing!". Sam was later able to chat with Bublé backstage and was actually a contestant on 'The Voice' following his moment of glory.
Yayo Sanchez -- also known as “KISS Guy” thanks to his Gene Simmons face paint -- brought the house down when Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl brought him up on stage to play "Monkey Wrench", even loaning him his guitar.
Speaking to Louder Sound about the life-changing moment, Sanchez said, "Walking up to the stage, I had a two-second conversation in my head telling myself to chill and just focus on playing the song right. The running around came from the last minute 'Ah, fuck it! Ride or die, bitch! Go!"
Grohl was so shocked at how insanely impressive Sanchez's solo was, that he forgot the lyrics to his own song, and eventually began bowing down to the talented fan.
She's known for her larger-than-life shows, so to impress Queen Bey is truly an achievement in itself -- but that's exactly what two fans did when they were invited on stage to dance at Beyoncé's April 2016 'Formation' show in Miami.
Dancing flawlessly to "Single Ladies" the pair had the huge crowd going wild as the nailed every move without hesitation.
K-Dot has brought many fans on stage over the years (including that incredibly cringe-inducing moment where one girl said the N-word and was promptly kicked off stage), but one performance that stands out was that of Peyton Renner in 2015.
Inviting the young woman to rap “m.A.A.d City” with him at the Sasquatch Festival, Renner completely killed the high-speed rap, with Kendrick visibly impressed with her skills and acknowledging that “every time [he] brings a female on stage it almost seems like they always outdid [his] homies.”
