The teenager, whose real name is Ella Yelich-O'Connor, has been nominated for four Grammys, including record of the year and song of the year.

She is also nominated for best pop solo performance and best pop vocal album.

Lorde had to pull out as a headline act of the Laneway Festival in Auckland because it clashed with the awards on 26 January.

The 17-year-old is instead performing a separate concert in the city on 29 January.
