David Bowie's son didn't exactly rave about Lady Gaga's tribute to his late dad at the Grammys earlier this month, but he had kinder words for Lorde, who performed Bowie's "Life on Mars?" at the Brit Awards in London Wednesday, the Guardian reports. "Finally found the links to tonight's Brits. Just … beautiful. Thank you," Duncan Jones tweeted after the awards show. Jones received at least one relieved reply: that of Mike Garson, a keyboardist who worked for decades with Bowie and who performed as part of Lorde's backup band for the performance. "Thank you Duncan," he tweeted. "So glad you enjoyed it. That means a lot to the band." (People don't want Kanye covering Bowie.)
