Lady Gaga may have killed it singing the American national anthem at Super Bowl a few weeks ago, but she certainly didn’t have everyone singing her tune after her David Bowie tribute at the Grammys recently. In fact, many billed it as the worst part of the whole evening, with the late singer’s son even chiming in about his dislike for the spectacle.

So some may argue that anyone could have done a better follow up job, but we’d argue that Lorde’s recent tribute at the Brit Awards was what the Grammy’s tribute should have been all along. Not only did the young singer (who Bowie himself called “the future of music”) hit all the right notes alongside Bowie’s former band members, but it also included a heartfelt introduction by the likes of Gary Oldman.

Oh, and did we mention that this time, Bowie’s son Duncan Jones, gave his full seal of approval?

The entire tribute was a surprise, so naturally between that and the sheer anticipation of what she was about to do left Lorde a bit of a nervous wreck. We mean… wouldn’t you be?! Luckily, she proved that Bowie’s musical faith was in the right place and managed to give a great performance of “Life on Mars?” anyhow.

Way to show ’em how it’s done, Lorde. You’ll forever be known as a royal to us.
