With four noms to her name, Lorde was the belle of the backstage ball at the GRAMMY Nominations Live!!! Concert tonight (December 6) at the Staples Center.

From the moment “Royals” was announced as a contender for Song of the Year, the 17-year-old newcomer generated the most buzz among the assembled press corps and artists alike.

“She’s incredible,” gushed Keith Urban, who like Lorde was born in New Zealand. “Just deeply, deeply talented.”
