WATCH: Robyn Rocks Nobel Peace Prize Show
The Swedish pop star turns the buttoned-up event into a full-blown disco.
The annual Nobel Peace Prize Concert is a black tie gala attended by Norwegian royalty and global dignitaries to showcase the world’s best musical talent and raise awareness about the prestigious award. But this year’s event turned into a full-blown disco – with a killer three-song set performed by Robyn. Check it out below.
The Swedish pop star kicked off her performance with a fitting version of the traditional folk song “Jag Vet en Dejlig Rosa” (translation: “I Know a Lovely Rose). Then she turned up the heat for her hits “Dancing on My Own” and “Indestructible.” Weird moment: watching the A-List crowd – which included Denzel Washington and Anne Hathaway, plus performers Colbie Caillat, Florence and the Machine, and Herbie Hancock – sitting motionless as Robyn busted out her fly, 90s-style dance moves.
