Watch: Lana Del Rey ‘Video Games’ Live On Letterman

Written by John Ritchie on February 3, 2012

Lana Del Rey released her debut album Born To Die on January 31st and it quickly went to number 1 on the iTunes charts in 11 countries. It hasn’t all been plain sailing for the singer though. After rising to fame in September on the back of her YouTube hit Video Games, it didn’t take long for the press to turn on her after a sketchy performance on Saturday Night Live.

After a quick look at her Letterman performance, it seems she may be in for another barrage of criticism. She definitely seems nervous and it’s clear she is still learning as a performer, though it must be hard learning the ropes on Letterman and SNL.

There are no doubts over the quality of songwriting involved in Video Games, but it’s her lack of conviction in her live performance that really makes you wonder how much input she actually had in writing the track. If you want to see Video Games performed with conviction, check out Bluejuice’s cover of Lana’s track below.
