A video of Hozier appearing in an episode of the popular 2000s children’s show “The Wiggles” has re-emerged on TikTok, and fans of the singer cannot get enough.

The show, which began in Australia, ran from 1998 to 2008 in the U.S. on Disney Channel. Some are even going as far as calling Hozier’s appearance on the show “their Roman Empire“, referring to a recent trend that discovered most men constantly think of the Roman Empire.

In the comments, many joked about how many stars have problematic tidbits of their past come out once they’ve achieved mainstream fame. However, Hozier simply appeared in a Christmas episode of “The Wiggles” he has never mentioned before. Many feel that his appearance on the children’s show only further cements the positive public perception of his character.

Elsewhere, some commenters pointed out that his uniform in the video indicates that he was a part of Anúna, an acclaimed traditional Irish choir that continues to play an important role in Irish river dancing.

Some pointed out how bizarre it felt that the singer graduated from a local choir and children’s show to becoming a Grammy nominated musician.


Hozier And TikTok

Hozier first rose to fame in 2014 with his hit song “Take Me To Church.” The singer-songwriter went on to receive several Grammy nominations and garner critical acclaim for his intricate songwriting. Hozier continues to also attract praise for his progressive beliefs. In 2022, after the overturn of Roe v. Wade in the U.S., the singer dropped “Swan Upon Leda.” The track references the centuries long struggle for women’s rights and body autonomy, told through the lens of the Greek myth of Leda and the Swan.

Hozier’s combination of American and Irish cultural references was taken to another level with “Unreal Unearth,” which seamlessly blended his own experiences with popular Greek myths and the nine circles of the underworld in Dante’s “Inferno.” The singer’s impassioned vocals and folksy production coupled with his poetic praise for women within his lyrics has rapidly grown a fanbase of young women on social media.

The singer recently recounted first reading the extensive epic at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, when he was home in County Wicklow, Ireland. He felt that several passages resonated with him given the uncertainty in the world at the time.

Additionally, the singer made a recent live duet appearance with another TikTok favorite folk infused musician, Noah Kahan. The duet is yet to be professionally recorded or released, but fans are manifesting it.


There are a few artists in my lifetime that live behind every song I’ve ever made. I think of them every time I sit down to write. As lame as it is, I literally try to make them proud. To be able to share a stage with one of my musical heroes was something so incredibly moving for me. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. Thank you @Hozier #fyp #northernattitude #hozier #noahkahan #noahkahanmusic #stickseason #newmusic
