Up There Cazaly! Sunrise’s David ‘Kochie’ Koch can’t contain his excitement and shows off some daggy dance moves as Mike Brady performs the AFL anthem live on the show

Up There Cazaly is the anthem all footy fans have known and loved since it was first used to promote the game in 1979.

And on Sunrise on Friday, host David ‘Kochie’ Koch was beside himself as singer Mike Brady, 71, took to the stage to perform the hit live on the show, which was broadcasting from Melbourne ahead of Saturday’s Grand Final. 

The 63-year-old TV star, who is the chairman of the Port Adelaide Football Club, could be seen jumping for joy singing and cheering as he watched the performance.

Kochie pulled out some daggy dance moves, clapping and wiggling as he and co-host Samantha Armytage watched on from the crowd.  

This year, Mike’s rendition is celebrating it’s 40th anniversary, having topped the charts in 1979.

It has since become a tradition to sing the song during each grand final.

Mike joked in an interview with the Sunrise hosts that he was a ‘child’ when he first sung the song 40 years ago.  

The Richmond Tigers and the GWS Giants are set to battle it out on the field during the highly-anticipated Grand Final on Saturday.

Kochie meanwhile, is known for his love of AFL, being a chairman of the Port Adelaide Football Club.

He first became chairman of the club in October 2012, with The Age reporting that Kochie’s family long has ties with the Port Adelaide area and were – and are – supporters of the club. 

The publication reports that Kochie went to Port Adelaide’s home ground in a pram at the tender age of one, and his grandfather would make him stand outside of the change rooms to hear the address of a former coach at the time, when he was just three. 

Talking about becoming chairman of Port Adelaide back in 2012, Kochie said he did so at the right time. 

‘Football politics can be destructive. Because we took over when the club was on the brink, there was no opposition to change, there was no pushback. We were in a situation where things couldn’t get any worse,’ he said.
