Lizzo tore the office down at NPR's Tiny Desk concert series and proved she can belt it out on a festival stage in front of thousands or at a tiny, tiny desk. 

Those who tuned in to the MTV Movie Awards or the BET Awards Show are already well aware of Lizzo's performance capabilities. However, now that she's taken to NPR's smaller stage, the 31-year-old artist has a whole slew of new fans. From parents who tune in to NPR on the daily to the gender-nonconforming people she addressed in her set, there are very few who aren't Lizzo stans at this point.  

Check out the NPR Tiny Desk Concert in full, or watch it for the third or fourth or fifth time. 

The NPR Twitter account absolutely had a field day with all of the Lizzo tweets. The day the video was released was officially dubbed "Lizzo Day." 

The account shared one tweet, "The wait is over. Watch @lizzo's performance from the #TinyDesk," snd then shared a horoscope meme plus an invitation, nay, demand to rewatch the video. 

The rapper and singer brought out her iconic flute, Sasha Flute

Of course, a Lizzo performance wouldn't be complete without a raucous flute solo. 

"@lizzo playing the flute during this performance is transcendent. I want to be her when I grow up. #TinyAssDesk," one fan tweeted. 

From "Cuz I Love You" to "Truth Hurts" to "Juice," every number was impeccable.

Hearing Lizzo's songs in a stripped-down format showed just how powerful her vocals are. While she normally performs in a high-energy setting, this was an example of how great an intimate concert could be for the star. 

"Drop everything you're doing and watch @lizzo's Tiny Desk concert immediately," one fan tweeted after watching the performance. 

The concert felt more like an epic church service than an NPR segment. 

"When Lizzo said, 'Can I get a hallelujah? Can I get a ya-ya-ee?' during her NPR 'tiny-[redacted] desk' concert ... I felt that," one person tweeted after watching the show. Lizzo sang out a few rejoiced "Hallelujahs" and got the crowd chanting with her. The crowd at the NPR Tiny Desk venue was the biggest it had ever been out of the hundreds of performances. 

This Gwyneth Paltrow video just about sums it up — we cried, laughed, sweat, and danced.

One person tweeted this hilarious video of Gwyneth Paltrow and wrote, "me watching lizzo’s tiny desk concert." In the video, Paltrow says, "I laughed, I cried a number of times, I sweat, I danced, I got a shot, I ate, and I had many epiphanies." Same, girl. 

NPR is somewhat notorious for being the disgruntled dad of radio stations, so it's no surprise that many young people got texts from their parents, enamored with the artist. 

Some people on Twitter shared their experiences of their parents discovering Lizzo, thanks to the NPR segment. "My Mom just informed me she's a Lizzio [sic] fan @lizzo," someone tweeted along with a screenshot of text that reads, "Just saw npr. Lizzio. Fantastic. Love." 

The misspelling of her name honestly just makes this thread that much funnier. Another person shared their view of their mom and dog starting the day off right, and another parent now knows the anthem of the summer. 

The body-positive goddess gave a shout-out to all of the gender-nonconforming people in her ensemble, and it didn't go unappreciated. 

One person tweeted, "Lizzo acknowledging nonbinary people at her tiny desk concert. I am crying. I can not see in front of my face." In another moment of the concert, the artist spread a message of self-love. "If you can love me, then you can love yourself every single day," she said.
