New Zealand’s Lorde performed her newly-minted Billboard #1 hit “Royals” on this morning’s broadcast of Good Morning America. The teen sensation’s brooding, luxury-rap-maligning track took the top spot from “Wrecking Ball,” a heartbreak power ballad by the currently-purp-and-couch-dancing--proliferating Miley Cyrus. I don’t know what the joke is there, but if you got one, have it. Watch Lorde perform below.
