LANA DEL REY Watch: Lana Del Rey Rocks Saturday Night Live

Get all the way into Lana Del Rey‘s performance of ‘Video Games’ on ‘SNL’ last night.

Marking the Interscope darling’s largest promotional appearance to date, her stint on the hit show arrived four days after the release of her self titled EP and 17 days before her long awaited sophomore album (and major label debut) ‘Born To Die‘ hits stores worldwide.

Peep her polarizing set below…

Sam’s 2 Pence…

Concurring with the mass, it’s fair to say Ms. Del Rey has had many a better day. That said, she still presents a compelling package. Time will tell if she can punch through the smoke with something of substance, or if she’ll fade when it clears.

Over to you…

Does Ms. Rey Have Your Support?

    when she’s on stage, she is visibly nervous. but that video games performance, she put a lot of emphasis on a lot of words. she’s still a great singer. just to nervous.

    I dont see her going anywhere but she is talented. The lyrics to her some of her songs are nonsense though.

    Didn’t know u were into Lana del Rey, Sam. Otherwise, I agree that that was an awful performance. What’s wrong with her voice? She should quit the cigarettes. It’s such a shame she couldn’t grasp the opportunity of performing in such a big place to deliver a decent performance.

    First time I’ve heard her sing live – if this performance is anything to go by she would be better off miming, at least she wouldn’t be offending our ears then. With her nonsense lyrics this girl is seriously overrated ;o)

    they want to make her the new sexier-version of adele. but it FlOPPED big time.

    she’s just boring and put me to sleep. i will only listen to her songs when i brush my teeth b4 going to bed.

    i don’t see iT for her. Just Overhyped white Girl with injected Lips :x

    I love her voice on “Born to Die”,but the rest of the catalog sounds the same. Not to say she has to be pop or radio-friendly, but something a little different would be nice. Sam,you called it, it was NOT her night…at least “Born to Die” has a great arrangement

    I thought she sounded pretty good. Im a fan of her music/style/artistry. She’s got a very good pacakge as far as a unique voice/beautiful looks. She’s someone to look out for ;)

    I CAN’T at much of her (st)fanbase consisting of Gaga stans,though….

    She may have other people appreciate her but how many times I heard the word Lana on my TL (which consists hugely of Gaga stans) is crazy.

    Not “hating” because I would have had stage fright too.
    She needs to stop being so shaky and Nervous (fourth wall).

    That being said,
    I like Video Games.

    @J :

    AGREE !! BTD is “her best song” till now.

    but she is still so over-hyped and her Voice is Over-rated.

    Florence + the machine is better for ME. :mrgreen:

    @Istan4gaga :

    that’s because little monsters will support anyone who they think a threat to “adele” ! but they are wrong !!! this girl is just Hype.
    don’t make me be honest on that s*** please ….

    hope i made it clear enough to U !! little monsters will kill for gaga. :x

    @Pop
    I doubt it’s because of who would be a successor to Adele.Maybe to some,but I can’t say all of them are doing it necessarily.

    I’m not that into Lana (or not just yet if I do get into her) right now.I do like one of her songs but I haven’t took the time out to listen to the rest of her music.

    I’m sorry she is way more interesting then adele. 21 is overrated born to die is a great record and Video games is even Better!! she is arttistic without her dragging it down your throught..she will go far watch this space… I just hope that she does go back to some of her early rnb/pop sounds

    I love Lana Del Ray and I was very excited to see her on SNL. However; I was a bit disappointed in her performances. I expected a bit more stage presence. It was obvious that she was nervous.

    Why is this girl on this blog, and not cos she’s a white artist but it’s because there’s nothing urban or soulful about her , people are building here up to be the next Adele but she’s nowhere near Adeles level IMO

    @Istan4gaga :

    Maybe , who knows how the LM think ?!

    anyhow , i liked ” born to die” and that’s it. adele is just better for me ! i feel nothing listening to LDR songs.

    ‘m not just into her. :x

    @Yellow :

    and by “interesting ” U mean sexier ?!!
    Gurl BYE.
    if she was that interesting that performance should have been more “interesting” ! ppl say she’s boring. i can’t even feel anything from her.

    Video games is AVG. and boring to be honest !

    and of course adele is better. :x

    this girl is a flopped experiment to create a sexier version of adele. Just that. :x
