Who knew Lorde was a big fan of Jeremih?

While visiting BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge to perform her new Hunger Games song "Yellow Flicker Beat," the "Royals" crooner also sang a cover of Jeremih's hit single "Don't Tell 'Em"...and it's awesome.

Writhing around with her signature dance moves, Lorde croons the song in her own way, slowing it down and giving it a soulful twist.

"I have basically been a really big fan of this song since I first started hearing it around," the 18-year-old singer said on the show. "I love the vocal melodies. I think they're really smart and just consider them cool. It's quite a saucy song - or something - and I think it would be interesting to flip the dynamic and make that power mine."

Although Jeremih didn't directly comment about Lorde's cover, he retweeted several tweets that praised the way she sang it, along with a link to the Youtube clip.
