Following the death of David Bowie, the New Zealand singer Lorde gave an emotional performance at last night's Brit Awards in London. "He was a piece of bright pleated silk we could stretch out or fold up small inside ourselves when we needed to," Lorde wrote on Facebook.

Bathed in red light and backed by Bowie's last touring band of Mike Garson on piano, Gail Anne Dorsey on bass, Gerry Leonard and Earl Slick on guitars, it was both touching and tasteful, with Lorde in a full Thin White Duke regalia - an outfit so iconic it seemed in danger of swallowing her up (until she swallowed up the entire room instead).
