NME.COM users have reacted to Lana Del Rey's performance on The Voice over the weekend, which you can see by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking, and, opinion is split down the middle.

Del Rey performed 'Blue Jeans' on the BBC1 reality show on Sunday (April 29) and immediately provoked a strong reaction across all social media.

On NME's own Facebook Facebook.com/NMEmagazine fans were divided in their views of the performance.

Stephen Fitzpatrick hailed her rendition of 'Blue Jeans', saying: "I think the fact that she makes no effort to act ridiculous on stage is a good thing, do we really need another Gaga? Her performance is a lot more about vocal talent and I think it's a breath of fresh air."

Rhiannon Douglas felt the same, she wrote: "I think it was brilliant and pure. She's constantly slated by the media whenever she does a live show but I thought it sounded great." Clare Harrison also wrote in support of Del Rey, she added: "Amazing, this is a really unique song plus she is beautiful."

Anthony Mulryan hated it, simply writing "Bag of shite", as did Sarah Netienne, who wrote: "Cat meowing sounds better than that to me."

Michael Bassett also criticised Del Rey's performance, he wrote: "They should start production on her VH1 'Where Are They Now?' episode. She's headed straight for the used bin at the record store", Adi Keefe also hammered Del Rey, writing: "That was shite. Go on a Kate Bush Masterclass on how to hit those notes live. Utter shite."
