Watch Lorde Perform “Green Light” & “Perfect Places” At MMVAs

On Friday, Lorde released her long-awaited, utterly badass sophomore album Melodrama. And last night, she performed at the Much Music Video Awards, the annual award show put on by Canada’s biggest music TV channel. Earlier in the night, the show had given her its Artist Of The Year award. And then Lorde closed out the show by doing two Melodrama singles, “Green Light” and “Perfect Places.” “Perfect Places” got an especially elaborate production, with Lorde singing with a choir of tracksuited kids while fireworks exploded above her. But even without those touches, she’s just enormously fun to watch, with her skeleton rap hands and her theatrical intensity. Watch the performance below.

Melodrama is out now on Virgin/EMI.
