Carly Rae Jepsen had the honor of inducting Cyndi Lauper into the Songwriters Hall of Fame on Thursday night, and as a tribute, she sang Lauper’s hit “Time After Time” backed by a full band. “I still can’t believe I make a living making music,” Lauper said after the performance. “I’m blown away.”

Jepsen has spoken at length about how much Lauper influenced her new album, and credits Lauper for her current obsession with ’80s music, so it was fitting that she was able to pay tribute on at the ceremony. Watch a clip of Jepsen’s cover below.

Bobby Braddock, Willie Dixon, Robert Hunter & Jerry Garcia, Toby Keith and Linda Perry were also inducted into the hall on Thursday night.
