Pure fire.

Grimes is currently in the middle of a sell-out European tour and, during a Dublin gig last night, she showed the world what a truly great live performer she is - carrying on with a show even after getting electrocuted on stage.

Grimes was mid-song when a faulty pedal caused some sparks to fly, fans capturing the moment in the video below:

Plagued by technical problems, the concert carried on regardless, Grimes later taking to Twitter and Instagram to thank fans for their patience and vowing to return soon.

What a trooper! Bieber has walked off stage for too much screaming and Kanye has had countless tantrums but how many stars have stuck it out after having electricity flow through their actual bodies? Not many kids, not many.

Her tour continues this month before she returns to our shores in the summer for Glastonbury Festival and, presumably, a few others too.

Good work Grimes! You have our undying respect.
