The legendary US star performed a special rendition of the song on tour in Auckland recently.

Lorde has opened up about Bruce Springsteen's recent cover of her Grammy Award winning song 'Royals' and said it was "the highest honour" and moved her to tears.

The 64 year-old musician, famed for songs such as 'Born To Run', 'Darkness On The Edge Of Town' and 'Born In The USA', performed the song on his toru in Aucland this week.

"My Twitter went mental, everyone in New Zealand was like 'You can't believe what just happened," she explained to news.com.au.

"It was so exciting, it was the highest honour. He's such an incredible songwriter. I got a little teary. It was very cool."

The song features on Lorde's debut album 'Pure Heroine' and has won her many famous fans – including new BFF Taylor Swift.
