I love Lorde. Not only is she a fantastic vocalist, at 17 she actually seems to get what most industry folks 4x her senior still don’t, and it was pretty great to see her able to shout that message straight to the A-list music celebrities sitting right in front of her at last night’s Grammys.

That said, I have wondered if every televised performance I’ve seen of hers is lipsynced. It just sounds too much like the original track.

But now, thanks to Youtube’s John Swan

Shine on, little lady.
