American superstar Katy Perry has deployed the mighty power of her world-beating Twitter account to anoint a fresh-faced 18-year-old from Bergen as pop’s next big thing.
Perry, who with her 66 million followers is easily the most followed person on the micro-blogging network, broadcast her admiration for Aurora Aksnes late on Wednesday. 
Aurora Aksnes, who goes by the stage name AURORA released the single "Runaway”, at the end of last month. 
She was nominated as Rookie of the Year in 2014 by NRK’s P3 station, and is signed to Decca Records.
