It was rumoured Lorde and Disclosure were going to be performing together at the Brit awards and looks like the word on the street was right, with the pair knocking out a mashup of sorts of “Royals” and “White Noise” live which kind of, worked.
The intro features the young New Zealand native knocking out her global hit while the Disclosure lads hit things in the background offering up some extra drums and a bit of extra oomph. Around the 2:38 mark AlunaGeorge steps in with the BPM significantly rising and energy injected into the better half of the performance.
Sadly not many of the dance nominations earned wins, with only Daft Punk and Disclosure collaborator Sam Smith taking out wins in the ‘International Group’ and ‘Cristic’s Choice’.
