Watch: Lorde Covers Rainbow As A 12-Year-Old
Fronts a tween band called Extreme.
Oh my god, look — it's Lorde as a 12-year-old front woman of a tween band called Extreme! To give you some context, a YouTube video shot in 2009 was uploaded in late last year (how did we miss this?!) in which the now Grammy-loaded Ella Yelich-O'Connor performs with her Belmont Intermediate School band, Extreme. Yes, that is seriously their name and 5 bucks says it was invented by their music teacher. In typical 'battle of the bands' style, the group of 12-year-olds (who range in height hilariously) are interviewed post show, wherein Lorde adorably plays with her hair, says she has a sore throat and yells "1, 2, 3, Belmont!"
