The Story Of My Life singer told him: “It’s a major honour for me to be here.”
The singer also poked fun at the American pronunciation of St Patrick’s Day, saying: “Happy Paddy’s Day, and for all the Americans here that’s with two Ds not two Ts.”
Opening his set in the East Room, the One Direction star said: “Thank you very much for having me here.
“As a proud Irishman who travels the world it is a major honour for me to be here so thank you very much for putting me up to it.
“There’s a lot of very talented Irish singers out there, so to be chosen to represent your country on the grandest of stages is a real honour, so thanks very much.”
Niall started by singing his new single Heaven before singing Flicker and This Town.
