Lana Del Rey - SNL

For those of you not familiar with Lana Del Rey, here is what her song "Video Games" supposedly sounds like:

However, when she got on Saturday Night Live this past Saturday and performed it live, this is what it sounded like:

That, friends and neighbors, is a pretty significant difference.  Personally, I don't care for either version, so I'm not all that worked up over the SNL performance sucking like it did.  Who knows, maybe she was nervous, or drunk or something.  Let's give her the benefit of the doubt.


  1. I was wondering about that. I don't know her. On SNL, I thought she had an interesting voice and maybe could sing, and why didn't she..?

  2. I just don't find her voice to be all that pleasant, even in the studio version, (reminds me of Paris Hilton...which is not a compliment) so I couldn't understand why everyone was so shocked by the SNL performance.

    Overall it felt like a high scholl "talent" show performance to me.
