Bringing her infectiously catchy sound to the States, Lorde owned the stage at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards earlier tonight (January 26).
The 17-year-old New Zealander brought just a drummer and synth player with her as she stepped out before the packed Staples Center audience to sing her smash hit “Royals.”
Lorde is nominated for two Grammys tonight, including Record of the Year and Song of the Year, quite the accomplishment for such a fledgling artist.
Of her chances, she told press, “I do not want to get my hopes up in any way, but I would be pretty psyched to win a Grammy. I'm excited for everything that will go along with the day -- seeing a bunch of my friends, dressing up, performing will be really fun. … It sounds like prom on ‘roids or something.”
