Lorde will be performing live at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards on May 18th. The juicy news was exclusively revealed by Just Jared .
The 17-year-old precocious singer has been nominated for 12 awards – the most on the night. She will be performing her new single ‘Tennis Court’ at the event.
She joins previously confirmed performers, 5 Second Of Summer, Jason Derulo, Imagine Dragons, John Legend, Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Lopez, Georgia Line, Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood, One Republic, Pitbull and Ricky Martin.
Lorde got everyone talking, including legends, Elton John and David Bowie. So it comes as no surprise that surviving members of rock iconic band Nirvana called upon the Almighty Lorde to perform at the 20th anniversary of the death of their front man Kurt Cobain.
Lorde performed a beautiful rendition of ‘All Apologies’ with David Grohl, Pat Smear, and Krist Novoselic at Barclays Center, Brooklyn during the 29th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction.
Donning a pink suit, the Royal hit maker gave one best live performance since bursting on the entertainment scene. She sounded great, plus she wasn’t doing her twitchy dance moves.
Watch her performance below…
Lorde looked absolutely gorgeous on the May 2014 cover of Fashion magazine.
The 17-year-old precocious teen taste talked about her fashion taste, favourite authors and music influence.
On her preferred work attire: “A lot of my stage clothes are suits, jackets and trousers that comes from designers like Philip Lim and Stella McCarthney. I’m a fan of Celine and Comme Des Garcon because the clothes don’t look contrived and they don’t look like they are tying too hard”
On one of her biggest influence: “Author Tobias Wolff is my hero. In terms of creating perfectly formed sentences and paragraphs and paying attention to word selection – Tobias Wolf is awesome. He’s been writing short fiction a long time but I read a collection called The Night In Question that blew me away”
Bruce Springsteen performed Lorde’s Royals at the Mt. Smart Stadium, in Aukland, New Zealand.
The legendary singer tried to make the song his but ended up with a rather woeful performance. I honestly cannot think of a royals cover as bad as Springsteen’s own. It was just debacle.
