On Saturday, March 11, Lorde performed her two recent releases, “Green Light” and “Liability,” after being introduced by actress Scarlett Johansson. This was the first time Lorde performed either of these songs live, making her a much-anticipated Saturday Night Live musical guest.

Interestingly enough, there was another Lorde performance on the show. Well, almost. In the show’s segment, “A Sketch for the Women,” Lorde’s performance of “Royals” was overpowered by the guys. Watch below, and you’ll see what we mean!

Watch Lorde perform “Green Light” on a red-lit stage.

… and then check out this almost-performance.

Both “Greenlight” and “Liability” will be featured on the upcoming Melodrama, due out June 16.
