She appeared wearing a short black outfit with her hair straightened, a look she's been favouring recently over her natural curls.

Celebratory tweets came from both Lorde and the band Disclosure after the show.

However some viewers doubted Lorde was really singing live on the show.

Our Royals princess wasn't having any of that, however.

Lorde fired back on Twitter saying: "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."

The 19-year-old is currently working on her follow-up to her smash album Pure Heroine.
