The 17-year old Royals singer seems optimistic about her chances at the Grammys today.

Lorde this morning tweeted that she is "feeling so good" about tonight, and presumably her chances of taking home any or all of her four nominated awards.

She faces big-name competition, including Daft Punk, Imagine Dragons, Robin Thicke, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, Lana Del Rey.
