Lorde baffles everyone with freakish VMA's performance

Lorde baffles everyone with freakish VMA's performance

She's rarely one to pull a lip-synch fast one on us.

Lorde and Joe Jonas probably didn't call each other up to coordinate their looks for the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards, but damn do they look sharp in lavender formalwear that could pop on the red carpet and on the dance floor at prom.

And not just any dancing, a very Lorde-esque interpretive dance routine that ended with her collapsing onto the ground.

"You can't tell in these pictures but I have the flu so bad I needed an IV", Lorde wrote on Twitter Saturday, after showing fans her "moon princess" look. Following the release of her incredible new album Melodrama, Lorde has been touring the world and performing the songs live, but tonight's performance was a next level rendition of the record's upbeat single "Homemade Dynamite".

Tharanga, as skipper, copped two suspension points, which equates to a ban of one Test, two ODIs or T20Is, whatever comes first. For the hosts, Lahiru Thirimanne was the top scorer as played a fine knock of 80, which included five boundaries and a six.

Because she was so sick, it makes flawless sense that she didn't even to attempt to sing.

Evan Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine was thrown off by the onstage display. She then mimed pressing play and bewildered the audience with her wiry dance moves.

We should really be thrilled we stan an artist who's so dedicated to her fans and her work that she showed up to an awards show where she's not even nominated and put on a damn good show despite her needing an IV only hours before.
