Lorde Dismisses LIP-SYNC Claims

ROYALS star LORDE has laughed off suggestions she was lip-syncing during her performance on U.S. TV show Saturday Night Live over the weekend (14-15Nov15).

The 19-year-old singer performed on the sketch show on Saturday (14Nov15), along with British band Disclosure, singing the track Magnets. While fans enjoyed the performance, they suspected she was not singing live, with Lorde taking to Twitter.com to set the record straight.


“Wow – the fact that some people thought i was lip syncing on snl is an awesome compliment!” she posted. “Goes without saying i have never/will never haha (sic).”

It seems the tweet did the job as hordes of fans reacted to the note, with one telling her it must just mean she’s iconic.

“We’re just a bunch of kids from far away places and we played on Saturday Night Live!” Lorde added. “It’s all a bit overwhelming and i’m crazy grateful.”

Sam Smith was also on the show and the four pop stars hung out in New York after filming wrapped. Lorde, who wore her curly hair in a sleek straight style for the show, told followers they’d all gone out for pizza.

Sam, 23, also let fans know how he was feeling.

“That just happened love my brothers so much @disclosure so proud and honoured to have stood on…” he started.

“Just landed back in London x what a lovely few days!! Still on a high from SNL x @disclosure @lordemusic.”

Sam has plenty to smile about at the moment, after his hit debut album In the Lonely Hour was re-released.

The 2014 record shot Sam to global fame, and the latest edition includes collaborations with Mary J. Blige, A$AP Rocky and John Legend.

“The response to the special edition of my album has been overwhelming,” he gushed. “So happy you’re enjoying ‘Drowning Shadows’.”
