Unless you happened to be nowhere near the internet on Monday morning (February 27), you probably caught wind of pop superstar Lizzo giving a cheeky nod to German industrial metal titans Rammstein at her show in Hamburg. Lizzo - real name Melissa Viviane Jefferson - spontaneously burst into an a cappella cover of Rammstein's hallmark anthem Du Hast, originally released on the Berliners' sophomore 1997 album Sehnsucht, pretty much breaking the internet in the process.

Proving that her unlikely nod to the German greats was no one-off, however, Lizzo went one better at a show at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Berlin last night (February 28), performing a full-on cover of the track, complete with beefed-up backing music from her live band.

"You better sing that shit!" demands the singer in a since-posted clip, adding a hearty "Y'all ready to go fucking crazy?!" as the cover kicks into fifth gear and those unmistakeable riffs begin pealing out. Leading the way with an onslaught of jumps, headbangs and, yes, booty shakes, it's a spectacle surely even Till and the boys would be proud of.

Watch the video of the delightful cover below. Presumably this all means we eventually get a video of Till twerking to About Damn Time when Rammstein hit the road for another European stadium show this summer.
