Selena Gomez gave fans a treat Wednesday night (August 14) at the Vancouver stop of her Stars Dance tour, becoming the latest to cover Lorde‘s ascendant single “Royals.” The young star turned out a gracefully slinky rendition of the younger almost-star’s hit, with Sel’s version showcasing more of an “unplugged” acoustic feel.

Check out the surprisingly clear live audio below, plus the short Instagram video of the cover, and then compare it to Lorde’s recent live performance of her Pure Heroine track.
