If it's already 15 minutes of fame - or even two minutes - then this is it: at a Coldplay concert in Brussels, Belgium, a girl in the audience, an Israeli named Gili Torres, asked to play the song "Green Eyes" with them.
At one point, vocalist Chris Martin approached her and asked, "Do you really want to play 'Green Eyes' with us, seriously?", and of course received a positive answer.
"Please accept my age like a rock star, come on!" Martin told the audience with a smile.
Torres went on stage, also received a hug from the singer, and then played the song with them on the guitar, clearly excited but also cold, while standing with her back to the audience and her face to the members of Coldplay.
At the end of the song she won applause not only from the audience but also from the band members themselves.
"That's fucking amazing, Gilly," Martin told her before hugging her again and then raising her hand in triumph to the crowd of thousands.

This is the second Cinderella story of a young Israeli musician within a few months.
Last May, the Maroon 5 band arrived in Israel.
From his seat in the nearby hotel, vocalist Adam Levine happened to hear Coral Bismuth playing at her regular spot at the venue.
He was so impressed that he posted a recording of her playing on his Instagram and invited her to play with them at their concert in Tel Aviv.
