Ireland is celebrating America this year, with people having a drink at the weekend.
But the Irish capital has another tradition for the American holiday – taking photos of celebrities.
This year the city will hold its first American Music Awards at the RTE Arena.
There will be two categories in each category, which will be announced tomorrow.
“I’m going to be up in Dublin and I’m going for a drink and I’ll take some photos of everybody,” said singer-songwriter-actor Billy Joel.
“There’ll be three categories, so we’re going to have to see what kind of awards I can win.”
The winners will be flown back to America and Mr Joel is going to the awards show for a photo opportunity.
“It’ll be fun to have a drink,” he said.
