The Electric Arena crowd managed to make her cry tears of joy
Norwegian songstress Sigrid took to the Electric Arena with her band today.
The tent, which was home to an electrifying performance from Versatile last night, hosted yet another Irish festival favourite.
Sigrid played at Longitude back in July and was delighted to be welcomed back by an Irish crowd for her 4.30pm performance this evening.
She played plenty of dance tunes including much-loved 'Don't Kill My Vibe' before going into slow, piano number 'Dynamite'. "We're gonna play a sad song now," she told the audience. "And literally kill the vibe."
As soon as the moving song was over though, it was back to upbeat Sigrid, who bopped around the stage and between band members.
Throughout the 21-year-old's performance, she seemed pleasantly surprised by the crowd's response to her. The kicker was last song 'Strangers,' which for the most part, she didn't really need to sing, as the audience roared the lyrics back to her.
Evidently overwhelmed by the crowd's obvious love for her music, Sigrid began to cry as she held out her mic for them to continue singing. She recovered enough to finish the song but once it was over she took a bow in tears.
It was a well-deserved response for the performer, who shows more stage presence at just soon-to-be 22 than most artists do in their lifetimes.
