Is This Why Lorde Didn't Sing at the VMAs?

That's different! She wore beige high-waisted pants and Adidas runners with her top

Lorde has confused the internet after not singing during her performance at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) in California today.

Instead, she emerged on stage in grey sweat trousers and a silver tutu and gave the song its own interpretive dance routine without singing a single word.

Looking at the photos of Lorde in her lilac Monique Lhuillier gown, it's hard to tell anything is awry. It's possible her illness led to her self-imposed vocal rest onstage. The singer appeared on the VMA stage in a shimmering foil-esque outfit, as she frolicked around accompanied by several backup dancers.

The New Zealand-born artist claimed that although she may not look it, "I have the flu so bad I needed an IV". "Feel better (still slayed)!" the official VMAs Twitter account wrote in response.

Fans were quick to come to her defense on Twitter.

She also kept a smile on her face throughout the entire dance (the last time you were this happy it was because the Starbucks barista you have a crush on spelled your name right).

Melodrama, the singer's second studio, debuted at no. 1 on the Billboard 200.

Lorde's appearance definitely didn't match how she felt on the inside.
