Lizzo thanks 'flute king' Sir James Galway

US singer Lizzo has written a gushing tribute to her musical idol

ellow flautist - Sir James Galway after they duetted at the Met Gala.

The pair performed for sharply-dressed guests

at the prestigious fashion event in New York on Monday night.

For Lizzo it was an opportunity to play with her hero

for Sir James it was late-night rehearsals, trips to the Vogue offices and keeping big secrets

"It was amazing - she is a very good player," said Belfast-born Sir James.
