Mark RonsonSuperproducer Mark Ronson was overwhelmed when he took to the stage with his boyhood heroes Duran Duran for a unique collaboration in France on Wednesday - calling the experience utterly "surreal."

Ronson joined forces with the "Rio" hitmakers for the Smirnoff Experience - an intimate one-off show in Paris, France. The DJ/producer re-worked the band's classic tracks in front of a delighted crowd including Hollywood actress Eva Mendes and fashion designer John Galliano.

And the Grammy-winner admits he was initially terrified about joining the group on stage - as he has idolized the British band since he was a child.

He tells Wenn, "I was really f**king nervous. Duran Duran are one of my favorite bands. This has to be one of the highlights in life for me. It's pretty f---ing surreal."

Duran Duran frontman Simon Le Bon was also delighted with Ronson's performance, he adds, "He had a lot of crazy ideas which all seemed to work out. So many, in fact, that what was supposed to be a thirty-minute set turned out to be an hour and a half! It was really magical!"
