Lorde wins big at MVVAs


Lorde got the royal treatment at Monday's iHeartRadio Much Music Video Awards in Toronto, starting and closing the show in style.

The 20-year-old Kiwi singer started off the ceremony by winning International Artist Of The Year, and closed the show with a medley of her latest singles.

Lorde made her way to the stage to collect her trophy, looking shocked by the results.

"Thank you, I want to say thank you so much," she said.

"Canada was one of the first places to go, 'hey we like this little weirdo', so thank you."

Speaking of her just-released album Melodrama, she gushed to the audience, ''I just want to say how grateful I am to everyone who waited for this record".

"I know it's a long time to wait. Honestly to all of you, everyone who listened, all the kids outside of my hotel who said they love that album, thank you, I appreciate it."

Lorde closed out the show with a medley of her latest singles, starting with Green Light and then Perfect Places.

The singer was joined by a choir, all clad in matching black tracksuits with white stripes for the show's grand finale which featured a stunning fireworks display.
