Lorde and Harry Styles were the main musical performing guests at the 2017 ARIA Music Awards, held at the Star Event Centre in Sydney yesterday. The ARIA Awards are the most important music awards in Australia so it’s no surprise they have A-list live performers each year. Yesterday, Lorde performed a two-song medley consisting of “Melodrama” tracks “Liability” and “Green Light” while Harry Styles performed his latest official single “Kiwi”.
Our favorite performance of the two has to be Lorde’s – fundamentally because we are not fans of the old school rock-y sound of “Kiwi” (not our cup of tea but we can deny Harry’s excellent showmanship). Lorde slayed that 2017 ARIA Music Awards stage. She moved all around it and got us feeling excited at every moment. Sucks that she lost “Best International Artist” to Harry Styles that night… because had it been based of yesterday’s performances solely, Lorde would’ve been the clear winner. Also, we must note this was Lorde’s first performance at an awards show since her dancing “performance” to “Homemade Dynamite” at the VMAs.
