Bruce Springsteen may have been born in the U.S.A., but when he played a show Saturday in Auckland, New Zealand, he didn't shy away from a local cover -- the song "Royals" by New Zealand's resident superstar Lorde.

Springsteen's cover doesn't quite measure up to the AcaBelles' rendition of the song, but frankly that would be pretty hard to beat.

Watch video above.
