Lorde got the royal treatment at Monday's iHeartRadio Much Music Video Awards in Toronto, starting and closing the show in style.

The 20-year-old Kiwi singer started off the ceremony by winning International Artist Of The Year, and closed the show with a medley of her latest singles.

Lorde made her way to the stage to collect her trophy, looking shocked by the results. She said: "Thank you, I want to say thank you so much, Canada was one of the first places to go, 'hey we like this little weirdo', so thank you."

Speaking of her just-released album Melodrama, she gushed to the audience, ''I just want to say how grateful I am to everyone who waited for this record.

"I know it's a long time to wait. Honestly to all of you, everyone who listened, all the kids outside of my hotel who said they love that album, thank you, I appreciate it."

Lorde closed out the show with a medley of her latest singles, starting with Green Light and then Perfect Places.

The singer was joined by a choir, all clad in matching black tracksuits with white stripes for the show's grand finale which featured a stunning fireworks display.
