Although Lionel has received some harsh reviews, it seems that Shane Filan stole the show and helped recover the evening.

The former Westlife star performed a number of throwbacks as well as some recent material.

Unlike festival goers, Shane was more than impressed with Lionel and even took to Twitter to share a photo with the international superstar.

He captioned the photo saying, “What a gent! Thank you Lionel Richie #legend #PunchestownMusicFestival.”
