The Best Lana Del Rey Performance We've Seen So Far


A few weeks ago, Lana Del Rey'sSaturday Night Live blunder caused a maelstrom of negative press for the young singer (note that it didn't end her career, as many mean-spirited Tweets predicted). Sure, we weren't crazy about her debut album as a whole – contrary to popular belief, this had nothing to do with said blunder – but we're still rooting for Lana, and we're glad she proved to TV land that she can come out and give a proper performance, and that she didn't cancel her tour.

This brings us to LDR's lovely performance of "Born To Die" at Amoeba Records in Hollywood on Tuesday. With a smile and a flash of attitude, Lana broke the "bored chanteuse" mold that had been growing quite stale in her live show. We think you'll agree that this is the most engaged and entertaining Lana's been in front of an audience.

She also performed that old chestnut "Video Games,""Blue Jeans," and "Without You."
