Lorde’s Performance: Billboard Awards — Singer Stuns With ‘Tennis Court’

Lorde kept the setting on the stage minimal for her performance of “Tennis Court”, with just a few disco balls and dark lighting, but the singer stood out all the more for it! Wearing an all-black outfit, along with a fashionable hat, the teen totally rocked the house! Although the setting was dark, Lorde could be seen smiling and clearly having fun with the crowd.

And it’s no wonder why she was so happy — it was a big night for her! Not only did the singer give a huge performance to the crowd at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, but she was also nominated for multiple major awards at the show!

The 16-year-old singer won Top New Artist and Top Rock Song, and she was also nominated for Top Female Artist, Top Radio Songs Artist, Top Digital Songs Artist and Top Hot 100 Artist. But that’s not all! Lorde also scored nominations for Top Hot 100 Song, Top Radio Song, Top Digital Song, and Top Streaming Song for her hit song “Royals.”

Lorde Shows Off Makeup-Free Skin

Lorde is fearless when it comes to performing in front of a huge crowd — and she’s just as brave when it comes to showing off her natural beauty!

The star posted a selfie on Twitter on May 11, wearing no makeup at all and making a bold statement that young women don’t need to cover up to be beautiful. We love that she’s sending such positive messages to her fans!

Tell us, HollywoodLifers, was this Lorde’s best performance yet?
