Royal perks! Lorde's older sister Jerry Yellich-O’Connor had a blast at the 2014 MTV VMAs on Sunday, Aug. 24. The 20-year-old had the best seat in the house inside The Forum in Inglewood, Calif. next to little sister Lorde, 17, and her pal Taylor Swift with a front-row view of all the night's biggest moments.

Prior to hitting the VMAs, New Zealander Jerry snapped selfies with her mom and famous sister. In an adorable car pic, Lorde's mom Sonja (who appropriately identifies herself as "mother of the Lorde") posted a photo of the three of them smiling with the simple caption "Us."

After arriving at The Forum, Jerry took her seat next to Swift and her younger sis, and quickly became the night's biggest cheerleader, even after Lorde cursed on live TV during her acceptance speech. Jerry was visibly psyched and rejoiced with Swift after Lorde won Best Rock Video for "Royals."

The suddenly-famous sibling then showed off her dance moves during Beyonce's show-stopping finale, and looked like she fit right in with the A-list crowd. 

Lorde's parents Sonja and Vic O'Connor have four children overall: Jerry, Lorde and younger siblings India and Angelo. Together for over 30 years, Vic only recently proposed to Sonja.
