Enigmatic songstress Lorde has the #1 song in the country for the sixth consecutive week, but when she stopped by The Late Show With David Letterman, she performed her single “Team” rather than the certified smash “Royals” — a move that probably says quite a lot about her interest in moving forward, now that the song has cemented her as a major figure in pop culture.
That was just what she performed on TV, though — the full Live With Letterman webcast saw the songbird performing several tracks from her critically hailed debut Pure Heroine, including “Bravado,” “Tennis Court,” “Buzzcut Season,” “Ribs,” “Royals” (of course) and “White Teeth Teens.” It’s a clear testament to her talent that she’s mesmerizing on stage — some magical quality that makes her the year’s clear breakout star.
Watch the full set up top, then see “Team” below.
