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

She sucks her name is fake too. Elizabeth Grant, you aren't as cool as Lana Turner and the Del Rey hotel in Costa Rica doesn't want you ruining their reputation.

Her name is fake. So are most performers in showbiz. What does that have to do with anything. All I have to say is Prince.

I haven't seen this since the episode first aired, and having never heard of Lana Del Rey, I remember my first impressions were that a) the song was pretty, b) her voice sounded husky and c) that maybe she was Cockney lol. I just immediately recognized it as a certain style, and I was surprised at the extreme response. Seeing it now, I really don't understand the backlash. There's nothing uniquely egregious about this performance. Yes, I suppose she seemed a little nervous and was a little pitchy at points, but the song is not hard to listen to, and she's certainly not difficult to look at-- in fact, she's very striking. I started listening to Lana soon after this and she's very talented. It really wasn't THAT bad at all, and people were acting like she killed someone. Relax.

This performance is ok.. Blu jeans is much much worse! (She performed 2 songs that night!)

Seriously??? this isn't as bad as the articles are making it out to be. I'd probably want to slit my wrists if I listened to this repeatedly (very depressing) but there is nothing terribly wrong with this performance.

wow i was expecting this to be a HORRIBLE performance, from everything i've heard.... and it's not even bad! she looked nervous &if she messed up that's probably why.

She isnt fake, her music is clearly deeply personal and im sorry but anyone that writes their owns songs are obviously talented, not to mention that voice! Ive heard people actually say her eyes are dead, but if you its pretty blatent that she's being soulfull, poetic and meeningfull. Huge talent i love youu LANA!!

I don't see anything wrong with her performance. Her style and appeal is that she that she sings sad songs.....and that is what she did here. So whats the big DEAL?????????

She didn't do horrible and didn't prounoce some of the words fully, and she just changed the song. It's not the normal way she sings the song. But none the less I love her music.

Fake? Who makes that call...you? Anyway, the thread is about this particular performance and it has justifiably been ripped to shreds. However, if the people that have done the most critisyzing were familiar with her style they would probably gone a lot easier on her. She wasn't really too far off from the recorded version and these people don't realize that she sounds kind of bad no matter how its being performed. She's no super talent as some are spewing. She isn't doing anything amazing either. It's slow, dark and moody and shes doing it well enough thst people wantto hear it, although not many. Anyone remember a little lady named Fiona a few years back?? Mix that with a sprinkle of Tori and there you have it...Lana.
