Lorde performs onstage during the 2017 Billboard Music Awards at T-Mobile Arena on May 21, 2017 in Las Vegas.  

Lorde’s highly anticipated sophomore album Melodrama arrives on June 16. That’s less than a month away, so the New Zealand pop dynamo hit the BBMA stage for a passionate performance of Melodrama’s lead single.  

To do so, she brought to life one of the pastimes of music obsessives everywhere -- karaoke. For Lorde's performance, the T-Mobile Arena's stage was transformed into a private karaoke room, just like the ones across the world where people have been belting out the words to "Royals" since 2013. For 2017, the Lorde karaoke jam/single of choice has been "Green Light," so she gave it a frenzied performance, with the aid of its lyrics flashing across the television screen in front of her. It's not that she'd forget; this is karaoke, people. 

Watch a clip of the performance below.
