Lizzo looks sensational as she puts on a stellar performance in Cologne, Germany 

She won mainstream success with the release of her third album Cuz I Love You  earlier this year.

And Lizzo looked in her element as she entertained her legions of fans at the Palladium in Cologne, Germany on Wednesday as part of her world tour. 

The singer, 31, looked nothing short of sensational for her performance, donning a baby blue leotard with a sweetheart neckline.

The Tempo hitmaker also sported a metallic jacket and fishnet tights which she paired with black boots.

Styling her raven locks into curls, Lizzo struck a series of animated poses as she entertained the crowd.

The singer was joined on stage by several back up dancers who all donned matching metallic bodysuits for the performance. 

Lizzo's latest show comes after she was accused of plagiarism over her chart-topping single Truth Hurts.

Brothers Justin and Jeremiah Raisens claimed they helped to create one of the track's iconic lines - 'I just took a DNA test turns out I'm 100 percent that b***h'.

As a result, they are each asking for five percent of the proceeds of the track.

Making the allegations public for the first time last month, the songwriters told The New York Times they wrote a song called Healthy with Lizzo that featured a near identical line.

'We were never contacted about being credited for the use of the parts of Healthy (melody, lyrics, and chords) that appear in Truth Hurts'.

'We’ve tried to sort this out quietly for the last two years, only asking for 5% [songwriting royalties] each, but were shut down every time.'

The brothers admitted they found the line on Twitter, originally penned by British singer Mina Lioness, who had accused Lizzo of plagiarising the phrase last year.

Currently Lizzo (born Melissa Jefferson), Ricky Reed, Tele and Jesse Saint John are credited as writers on the song.

The song topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart for six weeks in succession this year.

In a statement to the New York Times, Lizzo's lawyer, Cynthia S. Arato, denied their claims: 'The Raisens are not writers of Truth Hurts.

'They did not help write any of the material that they now seek to profit from, which is why they expressly renounced any claim to the work, in writing, months ago.'

The brothers went further and shared a video to Instagram that overlapped Lizzo's vocals from Healthy and Truth Hurts singing the line.

She sang, 'I did a DNA test and found out I'm 100% that b****,' in a strikingly similar melody - just in a different key.

Lizzo's camp did agree the writing session produced the 'DNA test' line. The dispute lies in who created the lyric.

The singer's representatives say she made it on her own, but the brothers say she tailored her voice to the line they created.
