We already know Lorde is a phenomenal performer/singer/human/17-year-old. But this audio of a 12-year-old Lorde (T-W-E-L-V-E, people!) covering the Kings of Leon's "Use Somebody" is truly next level. Considering at 12 we were busy watching Lizzie McGuire marathons and mouthing the words to "Baby One More Time," this is highly impressive. Listen and prepare to have your mind blown.
