Social media has exploded after Olivia Rodrigo was recorded performing in a dive bar in Manchester.
The 19-year-old was joined on-stage by none other than British pop icon Lily Allen and the pair sung 'F**k You'. Rodrigo dedicated the song to the Supreme Court justices who overturned the Roe v Wade ruling, which allowed millions of women the right to an abortion.
During her UK visit, Rodrigo also decided to pop to Manchester, not only for her Manchester 02 Apollo performance as part of her sold-out 'SOUR TOUR', but also for a quick session at a local dive bar.
Fans have since erupted online.
The 19-year-old and three-time Grammy award-winner was recorded by fans performing at Bunny Jackson's yesterday evening, 3 July.
Bunny Jackson's - which has two venues, Bunny's, near Deansgate station and Junior's in Northern Quarter - posted a video of the singer on its Instagram.
It wrote: "Shout out to @oliviarodrigo for smashing @natalie_imbruglia out on our stage last night! Epic scenes!"
The bar also posted footage of the full performance on YouTube.
Fans of Rodrigo were similarly quick to jump to social media in shock over her surprise performance at the 25p wings bar.
"Ummm Olivia Rodrigo was just singing at Bunny Jacksons last night??" one user questioned.
Another said: "Just watched @oliviarodrigo do Torn in @bunnyjacksons. Good night to her guitarist and her guitarist alone."
One of the venue's other performances on for that night tweeted: "Why yes Olivia Rodrigo, of course you can turn up at Bunny Jacksons on a bloody Sunday evening and play a song for a laugh before our 3rd set."

The other performer replied to a comment on their post explaining how 'wild' it was.
"They just showed up after playing the arena and her TM asked to jump on between our sets! They were all very lovely," they said.
Fans of the singer were quick to praise her low-key performance as 'awesome' with another noting how they would've 'acc passed out' had they been at Bunny's that night.

A spokesperson for Bunny Jackson's told LADbible: "She was really cool and it was great seeing her having a blast on our stage - we get a few famous people in the bar, but she’s the first to jump on stage and be that much fun!
"Obviously, our house band are now thrilled that, on a technicality, Olivia Rodrigo came to THEIR show. It was a great night. She’s a real joy!"
