Lorde silently tolerates jokes in “SNL” promos

Brendan WalterLorde will perform on Saturday Night Live this weekend. In a promo for the episode, she and host Scarlett Johansson stand silently as cast-member Beck Bennett jokes about the musician "dropping" new music. 

Another promo has Bennett going on and on about how everyone should "buckle up" for the episode before having a mini breakdown. Again, Lorde mostly stands silently.

While she's silent in the SNL promos, Lorde hasn't been quiet when it comes to her music. This week, she shared a new song called "Liability," which followed last week's release of the single "Green Light." Both songs will appear on her forthcoming sophomore album Melodrama, which arrives June 16.

SNL airs Saturday at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
