The shock factor.

Grimes was electrocuted on stage multiple times during last night’s (March 15) Dublin Olympia show.

The electric shocks were caused by a malfunctioning pedal, but didn’t seem to faze Boucher, who carried on with her set regardless.

Following the show, Grimes wrote in a since-deleted tweet: “Dublin! 1 mil apologies that my pedal failed and I was electrocuted, but there r tears in my eyes that y’all were so so wonderful.”

She also posted a Simpsons image on Instagram, with a caption thanking the crowd for being “sweet and kind.” See this, along with a shaky fan video of the incident, below.

In other Grimes news, the Canadian star is set to appear on the new A$AP Ferg albumAlways Strive and Prosper, which is due out “very, very soon,” according to the rapper.
