Lorde performs interpretive dance at VMAs despite fighting off bad flu

Lorde has raised eyebrows at the MTV VMAs after not singing a word during her performance of 'Homemade Dynamite'. 

The singer tweeted earlier in the day that she had such severe flu, she was hospitalised

"You can't tell in these pictures but i have the flu so bad i needed an IV," she shared with her followers. "#Showgoeson #cutelilproppedupcorpse."

The Green Light singer rallied enough for a performance in which she didn't sing, but instead performed an interpretive dance to a song off her new album Melodrama

The Kiwi songstress wowed in a light purple dress with matching eye shadow on the red carpet. 

Lorde was nominated for Artist of the Year, but lost out to 'Shape of You' singer Ed Sheeran.
