Lana Del Rey made her national television debut last night on Saturday Night Live. The singer performed her viral video hit “Video Games” as well as “Blue Jeans,” two songs off her forthcoming album Born to Die. She looked horribly uncomfortable on stage, which made it uncomfortable to watch her.
Actress Juliette Lewis tweeted, “Wow watching this ‘singer’ on SNL is like watching a 12 yearold in their bedroom when they’re pretending to sing and perform. #signofourtimes.” The tweet has since been removed from Lewis’ account.
The rest of the Twitterverse shared similar reactions, calling the performance “cringeworthy” and a “snoozefest.” Perez Hilton warned that we “#DontBuyTheHype.” Others were kinder — one tweeter said “it was better than Ashlee Simpsons’ disaster.”
Ouch. What did you think of her performances? Click the photo above to Watch Video Games and Blue Jeans is after the jump.
