Lorde Performs ‘Royals;’ Claims Best Pop Solo and Song of the Year at Grammys [Video]
The 17-year-old New Zealand native showed off her vocal chops — along with her dark fashion sense — during the performance, wearing a sleeveless white button-down shirt with black pants, her trademark dark lipstick and black lacquered nails.
The singer, who is up for four awards tonight, accompanied the song with a few jerky dance moves as she was backed by a keyboardist and drummer. The controversial pop star kept her eyes closed as she belted out the song that has taken over the airwaves.
Later in the night, her song won her Grammys for Best Pop Solo Performance and Song of the Year. She seemed humbled and honored to be on stage.
