Kendrick Lamar leads the way with eight nominations at the Video Music Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday

Lorde is nominated for two awards tonight at the MTV Video Music Awards, including Artist of the Year, and she came dressed to win.

And not just any dancing, a very Lorde-esque interpretive dance routine that ended with her collapsing onto the ground. Another amusing note: in the introduction, Jack Antonoff notes that he's seen Lorde eat gas station sushi, which we all know is a sure fire way to pursue death.

The singer was diagnosed with the flu and couldn't sing on the night. Instead of singing, Lorde opted to dance to her hit song, "Homemade Dynamite".

Lorde's performance copped a heap of flack on social media with many fans taking to Twtter wondering why the singer mimed her entire performance.

Lorde was sick with a awful flu.
