In the past few weeks, the "Royals" singer released two songs from her upcoming album Melodrama, and on the March 12 episode of SNL, she performed them both.
During her performance of Green Light, Lorde sounded wonderful... and danced like nobody was watching!
Whilst we were all stuck watching Casualty last night, Saturday night telly in the United States had a far bigger scoop - with Lorde returning to give live airings of new stormers "Green Light" and "Liability".
Watch Lorde's captivating SNL performances below. The 20-year-old performed with Disclosure for their musical guest spot back in 2015.
During her performance, she sat back to back with her collaborator Jack Antonoff who was on piano, and she was dressed in a loose white ensemble of a shirt and trousers with a ragged looking veil pulled up over her head.
During a recent interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Radio's Beats 1 station, Lorde revealed that her soon-to-be-released record tackles what her journey of self-discovery has been like, which led to an entirely new sound.
