Olivia Rodrigo and Conan Gray threw it back to Katy Perry‘s Teenage Dream bop “The One That Got Away” with a new onstage cover.
On April 7, during Rodrigo’s stop at Vancouver’s Doug Mitchell Thunderbird Sports Centre on her sold-out Sour Tour, Gray joined her to cover the song and turn it into a harmony-rich duet.
“We’re so happy we can be together today!” Rodrigo told the audience after the “Maniac” singer came onstage. “If you know me and Conan, you know that our favorite thing to do is get in the car and play music and sing along, so we thought we’d sing one of those songs for you guys.”
The singers took a seat side-by-side as Gray introduced the song: “Olivia and I’s favorite song to sing is a song called ‘The One That Got Away’ by Katy Perry,” he said, which elicited enthusiastic screams and cheers from the crowd. He continued: “We’ve sung this song on her bedroom floor many times, so we thought we would sing it for you guys today.”
The pop-star best friends performed the song, accompanied by Gray’s acoustic guitar playing. Fans sang along loudly to every word of the stripped-down cover.
The pair met up as their respective tours coincided — Gray is currently on his own headlining world tour and performed at Vancouver’s Queen Elizabeth Theater that same night. They also spent their time together re-creating an iconic Twilight scene in a hilarious viral TikTok, which was posted to Gray’s account and now has more than 17 million views.
Perry’s “The One That Got Away” peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2012 as the sixth single from her blockbuster 2010 album Teenage Dream.

At 19 years old, Olivia Rodrigo has three Grammys, two Hot 100 No. 1s, and as of Tuesday night (April 5), a headlining world tour.
Rodrigo kicked off her highly anticipated Sour tour with a sold-out show in Portland, Ore., and made her fans happy by delivering a setlist that left out none of the 11 tracks on her hit debut album Sour. There was even time for two covers, and so the “Deja Vu” singer filled the space with not one, but two punk pop/rock hits from the ’90s and early ’00s: Avril Lavigne‘s “Complicated” and Veruca Salt‘s “Seether.”
According to Rolling Stone, “Complicated” was the fourth song in the show and came right after Rodrigo’s mega hit “Drivers License.” It’s a fitting follow-up to a ballad themed around driving when you consider Lavigne’s iconic lyric “I like you the way you are, when we’re driving in your car,” which the pop prodigy earnestly performed while sitting on top of a piano.
After scaling through a few more Sour tracks — including a mashup of “Enough for You” and the Taylor Swift-sampling “1 Step Forward 3 Steps Back” — Rodrigo strutted up and down the stage for her rendition of Veruca Salt’s gritty alt-rock banger “Seether.” She reportedly thanked her mom for introducing her to the band, which could have easily influenced her own edgier songs like “Good 4 U.”
The ’90s rockers were excited to see the young pop star cover their hit song, which peaked at No. 8 on Billboard‘s Alternative Airplay chart in 1994. “We’ve been belting out #brutal and #good4u in the car nonstop for the past year,” the group tweeted on Monday, along with a clip of the performance. “This made our day, @oliviarodrigo.”
Lavigne also caught wind of the cover of her song. She simply retweeted video of it and captioned her tweet with an orange heart and black heart emojis.
With the Portland show in the books, Rodrigo has 39 more stops to go. She and her opening acts — Gracie Abrams, Holly Humberstone and Baby Queen — will trek through venues across the United States and Europe between now and the first week of July.
These venues are notably all theaters that only seat a few thousand audience members, as opposed to arenas that would be able to fit more of Rodrigo’s millions of listeners. She explained this choice, which saddened some fans who were unable to score tickets, in a December interview with the Los Angeles Times, saying, “I don’t think I should skip any steps.”
Last night, viewers of RuPaul’s Drag Race were treated to a nice surprise! During the show’s Lip Sync for Your Life segment, the three queens in danger of elimination were made to lip sync to Olivia’s good 4 u. Notably, this marks one of the quickest turn-arounds for a song to be licensed as a lip sync; the season, which was filmed in June of 2021, would’ve begun its production only a few weeks after the song and album’s release.
Olivia Rodrigo caught up with The Hollywood Reporter’s Neha Joy to chat about her new concert film ‘Olivia Rodrigo: driving home 2 u (a SOUR film)’, her songwriting process, the best breakup advice she was given, and her whirlwind year.
