Watch: Robyn disturbs the peace at the Nobel Prize Awards

We’re sure that tuning in to the Nobel Prize Awards on Friday night wasn’t high on your list of priorities, but thanks to our friends at Some Kind of Awesome, we’ve got some, well, awesome video to warm you up on what is surely a blustery, cold Monday morning in your town. The awards ceremony was held at Sweden’s Stockholm Concert Hall and co-hosted by Denzel Washington and Anne Hathaway (which would’ve been reason enough for this writer to watch), but the highlight came in the form of a three-song performance by Ms. Robin Miriam Carlsson – aka Robyn.

The 31-year-old dance-pop chanteuse took to the stage clad in a midriff-bearing get up and what looked like 8-inch platform shoes. She kicked off her set with “Jag Vet En Dejlig Rosa”, and while Body Talk Pt. 1’s Swedish language closing track is completely incomprehensible to us, we’re sure the audience appreciated it’s vibraphone-laden instrumentation and angelic vocals. Carlsson didn’t waste time being mellow and kicked right into “Dancing On My Own” which found her band utilizing a twin-synth/twin-drum attack to recreate the pulsating rhythm of the Pt. 1 cut.  She bobs and weaves throughout the performance and closes her mini-set with “Indestructible”. Several shots of the audience show them looking not too excited, but at least the band’s drummer, a Win Butler look-alike, seems to be having a great time.

It’s all available for your viewing pleasure below, and if you like what you see then you could always catch her at one of the tour dates listed underneath the video. If you like staying in the house dressed in your pajama’s then, pick up the third and final installment of her Body Talk series, which was released less than a month ago.
