Many of us dream about being on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and for one Irish girl that dream became a reality. 

Ciara Delaney from Dublin has been living in San Diego for the past two years, and she got a chance to play Ellen's iconic game - Hot Hands

Ciara is an Ellen superfan and placed second in a game of Dollars from Dorenbos and Ellen decided to be sound and give her a second chance, and invited her back. 

Ellen told her "If you get ten right in thirty seconds you're gonna get five thousand dollars and two tickets to the AMAs. If you get fifteen right before the time runs out you can get up to ten thousand dollars." 

Safe to say, Ciara absolutely nailed it. And, we LOVE what she did when she identified Cardi B!

Speaking to Spin1038, Ciara described the whole thing as "surreal from start to finish." 

"I still haven't really got used to it. All I ever wanted to do was be in the audience at her show because I love her. I've watched her for ten years so all of this crazy stuff that happened is just a huge bonus."

Good on ya, Ciara!
