Based on a tweet from Lorde, some viewers were apparently so impressed by her vocals in her SNL performance with Disclosure that they questioned whether or not she was actually singing live. An amused Lorde, who performed “Magnets” on the Nov. 14 episode, decided to dispel any lip-syncing rumblings.
