Madonna once said, "Music makes the people come together," and the BRIT Awards 2014 after party proved her point once again.

Katy PerryLorde and Ellie Goulding hijacked the DJ booth late into the night to blast Missy Elliott's "Lose Control." They all busted a move to the delirious dancefloor banger from 2005, and yes, Lorde did those awesome "cat scratching into the air" dance moves she debuted at the GRAMMYs.

It's surreal to see Lorde—the new face of musical nonconformity—gyrating next to Katy Perry, an imaginative pop star who nevertheless is a paragon of California conformity for many cultural commentators. As for Ellie Goulding, well, the electro-pop songstress has always found herself somewhere in the middle, so dancing next to the establishment pop princess and the anti-establishment ingénue seems particularly appropriate for her.

Watch the three shake a leg below and read about Lorde's fascinating live Disclosure medley at the BRIT Awards.
