Bruce Springsteen once covered a Lorde song - and now the New Zealand pop star has returned the favour by covering one of The Boss's best-known and most understated songs.

In 2014, Springsteen played 'Royals' when he was on tour in NZ, which Ella Yelich-O'Connor later said made her 'teary'.

Now, while playing in Christchurch last night, she covered 'I'm on Fire', taken from 1985's 'Born in the USA' album, describing it as 'a song I love'.
