American Airlines flight attendant Robynn Shayne provided some serious in-flight entertainment when she serenaded passengers with a cover of Lorde’s “Royals” — and later landed a rave review from Lorde herself.

Shayne's colleague, Nick Stracener, posted the video Sunday on YouTube, where the video has accumulated more than 47,000 page views.

“On a lovely winter day I came across my coworker Robynn who I noticed was carrying a guitar with her on our trip,” reads Stracener’s description of the video on YouTube. “I then asked her if she played and she said she loves to play and sing. Then this happened. Let's get this video viral for her and get her a record deal! OR GET HER ON THE ELLEN SHOW!!”

After Jezebel praised the video Thursday, Lorde linked to it on Twitter and offered her seal of approval to 2.6 million followers.

Shayne’s Facebook page cited Lorde’s tweet on what the flight attendant called the “Best Thanksgiving EVER!” Shayne also reciprocated Lorde’s love via Twitter.
