This Is The Best Cover Of Lorde’s “Royals” You’ll Ever See

One woman, one cup.

1. Australian singer/songwriter Sarah Stone has a truly amazing talent.

She currently has over 160,000 subscribers to her YouTube channel thanks to her brilliant cover versions involving just a plastic cup and her voice.

Here are some examples of her covers:

2. “Video Games” by Lana Del Rey.

3. “Pompeii” by Bastille.

4. Anna Kendrick famously started the craze of using a plastic cup to accompany her singing in the 2012 film Pitch Perfect.

5. Stone now has an EP of her own music, Lumière Noire, which is currently available to download.

6. The Australian is self-taught and says she once swapped her clothes for an acoustic guitar.

“That compromise turned out to be the best decision I have made till date [sic],” she writes on her website.​

7. Stone recently played a number of gigs in Melbourne.

8. And her popularity appears to be growing, with the “Royals” cover having now been watched over 4.7 million times since being uploaded in September last year.
