Something magical was in the air at the Grammy Awards this year. It seems that three of pop’s leading ladies got the memo that witches are just so hot right now. That’s right:
Madonna, Katy Perry and Lorde all seemed to have recently watched “The Craft” — or the current season of “American Horror Story” — and decided to use that programming as inspiration for this year’s show.
Madonna kicked off the trend on the red carpet, walking into the show looking like pop music’s ultimate supreme. In her wide-brimmed hat and tailored black suit, the Material Girl (who later performed with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis) looked like the leader of the pop coven. Her style quickly had fans commenting that she appeared to be auditioning to replace Jessica Lange on the witchy FX anthology series.

Not long after Madge’s bewitching red carpet appearance, Lorde performed her breakthrough single, “Royals.” Donning her hair long and straight with some black lipstick, the 17-year-old Grammy nominee put a spell over the audience with her twitchy dance moves and gothic imagery, including a big angel statue.
COVERGIRL Katy had a total #covermoment with her spooky performance. Taking to the stage for “Dark Horse,” the singer donned a flowing dress (with an LED bra) and was surrounded by fire and gothic trees. Did we mention, she also grinded up on a broomstick pole? It doesn’t get much witchier than that now, does it?
So, which pop star outdid herself in the witch department? Fans were left debating it on Twitter. In the end, both ladies seemed to have won a place besides Madge in the pop coven.
Katie perry should have a witch off with Lorde. #GRAMMYs
