The New Zealander may have come second int the Triple J Hottest 100, but today she has beaten out the likes of Justin Timberlake and Bruno Mars at the Grammys.
NEW Zealand pop sensation Lorde has bagged herself some Grammys and a Brit Award — now she’s going to tour Australia with a new show in April and May.
The concert will include “a killer light show and a few surprises along the way” and has attracted rave reviews since it kicked off in the US this week.
Since emerging just 18 months ago, Lorde has enjoyed a string of instant hit singles with songs such as Royals and Tennis Court.
The seventeen-year-old will play six dates in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane and Newcastle on the tour.
The announcement comes after Lorde pulled the plug on an appearance as a “secret headliner” for Adelaide’s Gear Up festival in February.
The Grammy-winning Kiwi cancelled her appearance last month to focus on her current US tour.
