Flawless Queen Marina Lambrini Diamandis, better known by her stage Marina & the Diamonds, performed on Wednesday morning (April 18th) an acoustic set for BBC Radio 1's 'Live Lounge' series - Besides doing her brand new single "Primadonna", the Welsh indie/pop singer also performed a unique version of the Justin Bieber hit 'Boyfriend' when it was time to do her 'cover' song, a classic section from the 'Live Lounge' series where the guest artist has to pick and sing a contemporary single/song from another musician. Anyhow, point it Marina KILLED it. So amazing. She's perfect. PERIOD. I really wasn't playing JB's 'Boyfriend' song anymore these days (I got kinda bored of it), but Marina's cover has made me interested in it again. Love the simple instrumentation of her 'Live Lounge' performance, and the vulnerability feeling in her vocals. And bravo for daring to make those lyrical changes. Beliebers, Marina and the Diamond's new album "Electra Heart" gets released on April 30th. Buy it!

What do you think of Marina's 'Boyfriend' version?
