Lorde was a special guest performer — along with Alicia Keys — at Sunday’s (December 1) ARIA Awards in Sydney, Australia and treated assembled fans and industry types to a knock out performance of Pure Heroine highlight “Team”. She kept it typically simple, belting out the song alone on a dark stage.

The 17-year-old donned her now trademark goth make-up and rocked a priest’s habit-like outfit with gigantic sleeves for the ceremony. New Zealand’s finest export definitely cut a striking figure behind the microphone, contorting her face and arms as she semi-danced/writhed to the song. Her vocal was excellent and she proved yet again that less is often more.
