And while the performance was perfect, lots of people are suggesting that the reason it sounded so radio friendly was because the 19-year-old Kiwi actually lip synced the whole thing!

wow – the fact that some people thought i was lip syncing on snl is an awesome compliment! goes without saying i have never/will never haha
