A big congratulations to Lorde! The 17-year-old singer made VMA history last night as the first woman to win the award for Best Rock Video. Among her predecessors in the category? Metallica, Green Day, Soundgarden and fellow 2014 ACL Fest performers, Pearl Jam, who won the award over 20 years ago in 1993.

Don’t miss Lorde at ACL Fest on Sunday, 10/12!
