Political pundit Alex Kane dons dress and sings on steps of Stormont after losing Assembly election bet
He's a man who stays true to his word.
Political commentator Alex Kane made a promise that if Green party MLA Clare Bailey was elected to the Northern Ireland Assembly following May 5 elections - he would stand on the steps of Stormont in a dress and sing a song.
Green party leader Steven Agnew reminded him of this as the votes were being counted.
And after Clare Bailey was returned to the south Belfast constituency - all eyes were on Mr Kane.
Last night, on BBC The View he fulfilled his promise and donned a purple dress, stood proudly on the famous steps of Parliament Buildings and belted out the Gloria Gaynor classic, I Am What I Am - under the watchful eye of the Green MLA.

And after his musical stint social media was ablaze with comment on his performance - with plenty of comment from the man himself.
