Was Lana Del Rey’s Performance “One Of The Worst Outings In SNL History”? [VIDEO]
That’s what NBC news anchor Brian Williams is calling it. Take a look at the video. I don’t think it’s a great song, and she seems a bit lost, but it’s also a unique style of music. It doesn’t make me want to rush out and see more, but past SNL performances by The Jonas Brothers and Ashlee Simpson quickly come to mind as being far worse. What do you think?
People sure love to hate Lana Del Rey. After sustaining repeated attacks on her appearance, her questionable past, and her flimsy current identity, the retro-glamour singer and “gangsta Nancy Sinatra” was torn apart once again for her less-than-impressive performance on “Saturday Night Live” this past weekend. NBC news anchor Brian Williams called her “one of the worst [performers] in ‘SNL’ history,” while the episode’s host, Daniel Radcliffe, came to her defense. So, did “SNL” producers make a big mistake by booking Del Rey, who has yet to release her major label debut album, for such a high-profile appearance so early–or by booking her at all?
