Yesterday Lorde hit the stage at the Brit Awards for a surprise unannounced tribute to David Bowie. Joined on stage by members of Bowie’s own backing band, she sang the┬áHunky Dory track “Life on Mars?”.

Bowie’s son, Duncan Jones, lauded Lorde’s performance, calling it “beautiful.” If you recall, Jones had a lesser opinion of Lady Gaga’s Bowie tribute at the Grammys.

For her part,┬áLorde admitted she was “nervous” prior to the performance, “and then i whispered to myself ‘just sing it to David’, and nothing else mattered.”
