Watch Lorde Perform in a Talent Show at 12 Years Old

By now you’ve probably heard that Lorde, the New Zealand singer whose song “Royals” is still at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, has been making music since before she was a teenager. She’s only 17 now, but footage of her pre-teen years has now surfaced. The clip above shows Lorde and her band Extreme performing at her school’s talent show, a pretty impressive affair. At the end of the video the band gives a quick interview.¬†Below, you can hear 12-year-old Lorde covering Pixie Lott’s “Mama Do.”
