We like Lana Del Rey. But we must be honest: this was a rather weak performance on her part during Saturday Night Live.

    I was attacked on this site for " writing in all caps " -- so I shall rewrite my review of " singer Lana Del Rey " ( I write in " Caps " because it is alot faster to write this way ). Lana Del Rey is a " extremely talented " singer , songwriter , and musician ". She has a " truly beautiful singing voice " . Del Rey receives alot of " unfair and negative press " due to the fact that she has a " wealthy father " ( this has absolutely nothing to do with her " sensational music talents " - but I guess when you are " jealous " of others " sensational god-given natural talents " people deal with this be " unfairly attacking " others . In the year 2013 Del Rey has risen to " Pop Superstar and Icon " status . She is currently winning awards " Everywhere for Everything ". Also Del Rey is a " well known International Model " known and adored by many. Lana Del Rey is " Now ' and will remain in the future a " Top Superstar and Icon " ! ( and to the writer that attacked my article before -- yes I'm a college graduate and a professional journalist - my portfollio of the newspapers and magazines I've written at are upon request !--- Truly--Linda A.

    You were attacked because you have poor grammar and punctuation. Also, being a reporter doesn't mean your opinion of music means more than anyone else. Why are you putting random things in quotation marks with spaces in between the " quotations ". Her skills of singing match yours of writing.

    WOAH WOAH WOAH. Okay, this lady had terrible grammar but to say Lana Del Rey is a bad singer? No. This woman's grammar is MUCH worse than Lana sang. So she had one bad performance? Have you ever done anything wrong? Duh. So how about you not insult an artist because she had one bad performance, in your opinion.

    I,M A PROFESSIONAL REPORTER AND WRITER . I HAVE VIEWED LANA DEL REY " SNL PERFORMACE " MANY TIMES. I THOUGHT THAT SHE WAS " EXTREMELY PROFESSIONAL AND ARTISTICALLY FINE " . I DON'T UNDERSTAND ALL OF THE " NEGATIVE " REACTIONS TO DEL REY'S "SNL PERFORMANCE . SHE HAS " IMPROVED VASTLY AS A LIVE PERFORMER " OVER THE LAST YEAR PERIOD. LANA DEL REY IS " NOW " AND WILL CONTINUE IN THE " FUTURE " TO REIGN AS A " POP MUSIC ICON AND SUPERSTAR ". HER TALENTS AS SINGER, SONGWRITER, AND VISUAL PRESENTATIONS ARE " SIMPLY UNCOMPARABLE " ! LANA DEL REY IN THE YEAR OF 2013 HAS EMERGED AS A " TRUE POP SUPERSTAR --SHE IS " WINNING AWARDS EVERYWHERE FOR EVERYTHING "--LANA DEL REY I TALENTS ARE " TRULY AMAZING " !!

    I get people lie on the internet, but seriously? A professional writer I agree with what. That was painful to read and what the hell is with all the quotations. Ughh you suck, I going to assume you're in middle school

    You're a professional writer who can't write? That actually hurt to read. Do you write for All Caps Lunatics Quarterly? If you're a writer I'm a deep sea fisherman.

    If you hold up a magnifying glass big enough, you'll find every flaw under the sun. I don't get what the big deal is. Maybe I haven't seen enough Lana Del Ray to say this isn't her best performance, but I don't see where the "disaster" is. It's not a terribly strong performance, it's pretty "meh" and "just alright" but holy crap, why is it getting so much criticism? Is there really nothing else to talk about?

    Ok..im not even that big fan of lana but SHE DOES NOT SOUND THAT BAD AND SHE LOOKS NERVOUS AS HELL!! I know I am repeating what everyone else is saying..but good god you could see the nervousness if you were blind..its in her voice and everything. Leave her alone she is nervous as hell.

    C'mon guys, I'm a huge fan of Lana... I swear! But we can see clearly in this performance that she was freaking nervous, don't forget artists are above all, ordinary human beings, but all these haters make my eyes cry for reading such bullshit spoken from nonsense brains... What's the matter with this little failures? Fuck it, she still rocking with her amazing way of changing the music industry, her sense of art and her huge soul are not minimized by this one and only performance... Enhance your knowledge before judging someone who doesn't give a fuck for what ur saying and won't stop making money only because you didn't like... It was only one more show and only one more way to increase her marketing, these speculations only fills her wallet

    I'm recently really into Lana, and I dissed her on this performance way before I had heard the song. This performance was before she had released her album. She sounds really nervous. Her lack of movement, and the waviness of her voice are proof to it. It's not a terrible performance, a little pitchy but still good.

    I don't see anything wrong with this performance I personally think It's beautiful. People don't understand something when it's different and it's a shame. THIS WAS BEAUTIFUL.

    oh my god, i was cringing through most of this. she sounds like she has a cold or something. there are some parts where it gets kind of good, but most of the time it was just bad.
    i have somewhat quirky tastes in music, so i can understand something when it's different. but this wasn't different. this was bad. no offense, but i really don't know what you were listening to when you said this was beautiful, because it definitely was not this.

    SPOT ON, NICOLE!
    Did she miss a note? no.
    Out of key/pitch? no.
    Do most critics have ANY talent? no.
    Did she display her huge vocal range? yes.
    Was this an "artistic" performance based on Lana believing the average listener would "get it?" definitely!
    Is LDR a huge talent who built such a huge global fan base/following that Interscope HAD TO sign her? touché! Her coup de grâce!!
