Lorde on Letterman

Last night, the teenage New Zealand pop phenom Lorde was the musical guest on Late Night With David Letterman. There, she sang “Team,” her follow-up to the world-conquering “Royals,” and gave an awesomely disgusted reaction when Letterman went in to kiss her hand. And she also became the latest act to play a full set for the show’s Live On Letterman webcast series. Lorde doesn’t have that much music, so her performance was only about a half hour, but it was still a strong indicator of the sort of awkward teenage intensity she brings, a decidedly-not-studied pose that makes her an interesting addition to the pop landscape. Watch the televised performance and the webcast below.

Lorde’s album Pure Heroine is out now on Universal.

  1. She’s really creeping me out with all those herky-jerky dance moves.

    Good performance though, Team is a great song, I fully expect it to blow the fuck up very soon.
