Lorde shocked concertgoers in Australia recently by belting out Whitney Houston's 1987 hit, 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody'.

The 21-year-old, who covered other big names during the Australian leg of her tour last week, belted out the tune after congratulating the Aussies on the passing of their same-sex marriage bill.

She asked one of the audience members if she could take their rainbow flag, which she draped around her shoulders.

Lorde also covered Hunters & Collectors' 1984 single, 'Throw Your Arms Around Me', during the show.

She also sang the chorus of Powderfinger's 'My Happiness'.
