Some viewers were apparently so impressed with the artist’s performance that they were convinced she was not singing live, reports Billboard.
But the New Zealand-born songwriter was adamant this was not true. She posted, “Wow – the fact that some people thought i was lip syncing on snl is an awesome compliment! goes without saying i have never/will never haha.”
She later tweeted, “We’re just a bunch of kids from far away places and we played on SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE! it’s all a bit overwhelming and i’m crazy grateful.”
Lorde performed ‘Magnets’, taken from Disclosure’s second, September-released album ‘Caracal’, with the London duo on the night, but she wasn’t the only musical guest on the show. Sam Smith joined Disclosure on lead single ‘Omen’.
