The 20-year-old sang her single Blue Lights on ABC's popular American show Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday.

While her set at music festival Coachella – one of the biggest and most renowned events across the globe – was hailed as one of the best of the weekend.

She will be in the United States for a month performing a host of sold-out gigs in Portland, Seattle, Chicago, Detroit, Boston and New York among others.

It comes before her nine-date tour in the UK in October when she will be heading to Bristol, Newcastle, Norwich as well as two nights at Manchester's Albert Hall.

Her tour includes a homecoming show at Birmingham O2 Academy on October 13.
