Lorde "Performed" At The VMAs, But She Didn't Sing At All

Coming through! Lorde struggles to maneuver her lilac feathered ball gown on the red carpet as she attends MTV Video Music Awards

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

Kiwi singer-songwriter Lorde will go head-to-head with Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars and The Weeknd for the MTV Video Music Awards' artist of the year award.

Her routine included foot stomps, collapsing on the ground, slow motion boxing moves, being carried in the air by back-up dancers dressed in black, and shoulder shrugs.

The "Green Light" singer - who was nominated for two VMAs this year - followed up her comment about her red carpet style with another tweet explaining that looks can be deceiving, and though she looked as glam and glowing as ever at the show, she was actually really sick.

Dressed in an aluminum-like strapless mini with trousers and kicks, she looked a little '80s prom queen as she placed a cassette tape into an old school boombox by her feet.

One Twitter follower wrote: "I came to see Lorde sing not to see her audition for So You Think You Can Dance".

When she tweeted this, we wondered why her musical performance was so physically demanding.

Some people, even other artists, didn't quite seem to understand what was going on.

Evan Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine was thrown off by the onstage display.

Instead of singing live, as is customary at awards shows, she opted to dance around to the track while her backing song played, and did so with the kind of jubilance that is an utter joy to watch.
