Lorde performed her new song "Tennis Court" at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards last night, stunning the Las Vegas crowd with her unique vocal stylings.
The New Zealand teen delivered a dark rendition of the track, keeping the theatrics and lighting on stage to a minimum, as has become her calling card.
Ironically, her all-black outfit seems to help her talent shine even more (and that fashionable hat doesn't hurt either). It's her voice that truly owns the room, though.
Listen to her sing "Tennis Court" below and see what we mean ...
Authentic would be one word to describe the up-and-comer. Raw and rigid would be others, but that doesn't mean she's emotionless. Far from it, in fact.
Unlike the similarly dark Lorde Grammy Awards performance, she could be seen smiling and clearly having fun with the crowd at times during this one.
She certainly had ample reason to smile Sunday. Lorde was among the Billboard Music Awards winners for 2014, winning Best New Artist at the event.
Winning raves for performances both raw and fearless - which also describe her appearance at times - there's no telling how James Lowe's girlfriend can go.
