    I loved it.


    love the song! But her dancing was weird. It looked as if she was having a seizure.


    That Lorde song did NOT electrify anyone...other than Free Britney, perhaps. Lorde has talent, but her song wasn't any better "live" than it the overhyped studio version is.

    There were far more entertaining moments in the show.

    @ Phil Esteen

    Disagree 100% - it was the best moment of the night because it wasn't overblown, nor overdramatic (was Swift trying to have a kid with the piano?). Also, Lorde chose not to perform a carbon copy of the version from the record and which she's done on so many TV shows - at 17 she already knows how to keep her music sounding fresh. I actually consider her "Team" to be a better song, but Royals did the job and she proved you don't have to wear a thong or engage in overblown theatrics to succeed. The black fingers were an odd touch, I'll admit, but she wore bright purple lipstick to an event a few days ago too. It's called experimenting, which most of today's status quo pop stars refused to do.

    I agree team is kind of good or better than royals.I feel like the way Lorde acts is different than other singers but I guess that's what makes her unique and different from other singers.She is very talented!!And for me as a teenager she is a good role model.Keep it up!!!!

    @ Al

    Agreed. I was totally captivated by her performance. She brings something so unique, I think she's very refreshing. The other thing I loved about her performance is she looked like she was having a great time!
