“Wednesday and I find myself in the company of Black Midi,” Hill posted on Instagram along with a selfie of the band.
The comedian told Good Morning Britain how he’d previously met the band at a gig when they asked if he would join them on stage in the future.
“It finally happened last night,” he said. “I said ‘how about doing a bit of Cardi B?'”
“Go and see them, they are brilliant,” he added.
Cameron Picton of Black Midi also shared a snap of the band with Hill, writing on Twitter: “We’ve done loads of crazy prestigious stuff we’re proud of, we could perform at the Grammys and even win one or travel back in time and play live aid or some shit but nothing- NOTHING will ever top HARRY HILL coming on stage and doing a Cardi B verse with us tonight.”

Meanwhile, Yard Act will play a five-night residency at Brudenell Social Club in their hometown of Leeds from May 8-12, with Hill, Rose Matafeo, Lolly Adefope and Nish Kumar all set to open for the post-punk band.
A different comedian will support each night, with a top secret special guest also set to come out of retirement to open at one of the shows.
“Yard Act made me cry – but once I’d got over the fee I jumped at the chance!” Hill quipped in a press release.
The Brudenell Social Club residency will take place after Yard Act wrap up a headline tour, where they will be playing their biggest shows to date as a way to bring down the curtain on the cycle for their debut album ‘The Overload’.
