Move over James Corden, it’s The Lorde Show.
While Lorde fans everywhere are settling in with the New Zealand artist’s new album Solar Power, its creator started her weeklong residency on The Late Late Show.
James Corden’s late show returned Monday night (Aug. 23), though he wasn’t the center of attention.
Lorde, wearing a bright yellow ensemble, slipped into Corden’s monologue, and switched out the Brit’s marquee. It really is The Lorde Show, for this week at least.
It wasn’t all fun and games for Lorde (real name Ella Yelich-O’Connor). The Aucklander performed the title track with her band on a stage dressed up like a summery beach. Her backing band stayed in theme, sans shoes and in cream-colored suits. It’s summer love, all the way.
