Watch Lorde and Disclosure Save the BRIT Awards From Becoming a Colossal Bore

By most accounts, the BRIT Awards (the equivalent of the Grammys . . . and just as relevant) were a total snooze yesterday. But apparently there were a couple of shining moments to stir the artists and music execs dozing off in their seats.

Arctic Monkeys picked up the coveted (well, if you’re into that sort of thing) trophies for Best British Group and Best British Album. And frontman Alex Turner made some One Direction joke and bitched about the state of music. So it had that going for it.

It also had a pretty close to perfect performance by Lorde and Disclosure, two overseas artists who made albums worth a damn last year. They got together for a mash-up of Lorde’s ‘Royals’ and Disclosure’s ‘White Noise.’ They were joined by AlunaGeorge’s Aluna Francis, who sings on the original Disclosure track.

It was a pretty stunning and extravagant performance, as you can see in the above video, and a bit more electric than the one Lorde performed at the Grammys a few weeks ago.

The awards themselves were handed out to faves like David Bowie and Daft Punk and . . . um, Bastille. Lorde ended up winning an award for Best International Female, which sounds like something James Bond would give to one of his many lady friends inexplicably named after genitalia.
