Check out the best covers of Lorde’s Royals!
Lorde’s breakout track Royals is a great reminder that incredible songs can inspire musicians everywhere. From huge pop stars to emerging artists, Royals has sparked creativity in everyone.
Check out some of our favourite covers of MMVA performer Lorde’s Royals.
15. Ed Sheeran
Two-time MMVA performer Ed Sheeran performed his cover of Lorde’s Royals while on a radio show. I feel like I’d be a bigger fan it if the acoustics were a bit stronger.
14. Postmodern Jukebox
Throwback band Postmodern Jukebox have put out some of our favourite covers in the past year, with everything from Miley Cyrus to Kesha to Beyonce. I’m still undecided about the whole sad clown thing.
13. Mayer Hawthorne
Royals gets a jazzy makeover by Mayer Hawhthorne.
Sisters Cimorelli showed their love for Lorde with their cover of Royals.
I’d like to go back to a school, find an Acapella club, and join it. Why didn’t any tell me they’re so aca-mazing?
10. Bruce Springsteen
The boss is totally boss on his cover of Royals.
9. Selena Gomez
Co-host of the 2012 MMVAs, Selena Gomez frequently covered Lorde’s breakout hit during her Stars Dance tour.
8. Kina Grannis
All that time I spent waiting for the subway could have been used to make amazing covers. Oh wait, I can’t sing. Candy Crush it is!
7. Ryan Watson
The only thing missing from 12-year-old Ryan Watson’s punk cover of Lorde’s Royals was screaming out “God save the Queen” at the end. I’ll forgive him. He wasn’t even born during that century.
6. Craig Campbell
Royals as a country song is super badass. Why wasn’t Lorde’s buddy Taylor Swift on this idea?!
5. Walk Off The Earth
Of course Walk Off The Earth covered one of the biggest songs of the century and of course they freaking nailed it.
4. Sarah Stone
Pour me a cup of whatever amazingness she’s having.
3. Jason Derulo
Jason Derulo switched up genres with his cover of Royals, nailing his performance at BBC Radio 1 Lounge.
Holy harmonization, amirite?
1. Conor Maynard
UK singer Conor Maynard mashed up his cover of Lorde’s Royals with Avicii and One Direction. Like all his covers, this one is perfection.

Yesterday, Jones visited Late Night with Seth Meyers to discuss the Twitter trolls she encountered in response to the Ghostbusters movie. With her recent return back to Twitter […]
Amy Winehouse had a voice much bigger than her five-foot-something stature. When Back to Black went double platinum nearly a year after its release, this tiny kid from the U.K. had the world wondering, “What is this girl about?” My story with Winehouse started before she became a household name. As July 23 marks five years since […]
With The Hills: That Was Then, This Is Now just a few weeks away, we can’t help but listen to the iconic theme song on repeat.

Céline Dion hasn’t spent a lifetime performing to sold out crowds just to sit on a couch and do a few halfhearted impressions. The woman’s an *entertainer*. That’s why when Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon invited the Grammy winner to play Wheel of Musical Impressions, Dion agreed. And then she slayed. Dion did the usual […]
