Watch Lorde perform David Bowie tribute at the Brit Awards

GettyImages-512083516_620x311 Lorde gave tribute to her friend and hero, David Bowie, today at the Brit Awards at London's O2 Arena. Singing Life On Mars with Bowie's own tour band, the Kiwi songstress received a rare standing ovation after the song, with people describing the performance as 'incredible' and 'perfect'. Lorde made it clear Bowie was one of her icons when she wrote a heartfelt message on his passing about their first encounter, 'I realised everything I’d ever done, or would do from then on, would be done like maybe he was watching. I realised I was proud of my spiky strangeness because he had been proud of his.'
