EXCLUSIVE SNEAK: Lorde + HAIM Team Up To Cover Sheryl Crow’s “Strong Enough”

If you missed Monday night’s VH1 You Oughta Know In Concert livestream, you’ll have a chance to catch the highlights of the program next Thursday, November 21, at 9/8C. Between now and then, we’ll be rolling out clips from this evening’s AMAZING show here on VH1 Music, including the moment that has the Internet salivating earlier this week: The moment when Lorde and HAIM teamed up to cover Sheryl Crow‘s AAA classic, “Strong Enough.”


Both Lorde and HAIM put on incredibly well-received individual four-song sets during the show, the former performing “Royals” to deafening cheers and the latter displaying the full range of emotions on their debut LP, Days Are Gone. However, at the end of HAIM’s set, the three sisters (Este, Danielle and Alana) stayed on stage for a fifth song, one they described as having never before performed live. That song was, of course, Crow’s 1994 single “Strong Enough,” which reached a peak of #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 but has been an consistent presence on AAA radio for close to 20 years now. Danielle took the first verse, then Este tackled the second before the gals invited “our friend Lorde” out on stage to help them finish the song.

As soon as this moment went down live at New York City’s Roseland Ballroom, the Internet erupted with excitement. Now, you can catch a sneak peek of the moment that everyone’s been talking about. To catch the full performance, be sure to tune-in to VH1 to watch our You Oughta Know In Concert special on Thursday, November 21 at 9/8C, and check back here at VH1 Music frequently for more sneaks and web exclusives!
