Watch This 9-Year-Old Nail a Nirvana Classic on the Drums

She whales on those drums!

Sometimes kids come into the social media spotlight, and it’s not a cute moment that their parent happened to catch. Instead, everyone is captivated by a real killer talent they have that puts us who’ve been on the planet for far longer to shame. Meet Nandi Bushell – she’s cooler than me, she’s cooler than you. And she is a killer drummer at only 9 years old.

Nandi, from Ipswich, England, has been practicing her drumming skills since she was 6 years old.  And in those three years, she’s become quite successful – she’s performed with Lenny Kravitz, has hung out with Questlove, and she’s been featured in an ad for a British retailer. She’s not your average run-of-the-mill 9-year-old, and her latest video proves this further.

The tiny but mighty drummer recently uploaded a video of herself doing a cover of the 1991 Nirvana song “In Bloom,” and she is not playing around. You can tell her parents have spent hours of time listening to her practice because she’s a full-on expert at this point. The way she throws herself into every beat, not missing a single one, and the screams she adds into her performance – she’s a total star.

In a clip of the video she posted to Twitter, the little star says Nirvana is in her “top 5 bands so far” and says she’s a big fan of Dave Grohl and School of Rock, which she says is “the best film in the world.”
