Lorde hits back at 'lip-sync' accusations after SNL Magnets performance
Lorde has made a stinging comeback over accusations that she mimed her way through a performance on US sketch show Saturday Night Live.
The Royals star was singing new song Magnets with UK dance duo Disclosure but some viewers took to social media to question the authenticity of the vocals.
Before the show, Lorde tweeted from backstage: "Alright let's do this."

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.
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 (@lordemusic) November 15, 2015
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."
