You know a pop song has peaked when a bird halfway around the world is singing it. 

This parrot in the Philippines does a better rendition of Sia’s breakout 2014 hit “Chandelier” than what you’ll typically find at late-night karaoke. The bird misses a few key lyrics—including, ironically, the word “bird”—but the delivery is remarkable. 

The two-minute video has been viewed over 1 million times and shared more than 37,000 times since making its way to Facebook Sunday afternoon.
