Last night, Lana Del Rey made her debut appearance in the living room of millions. She performed on Later…With Jools Holland, a clip of ‘Video Games’ can be seen below.
After being bewitched by her self-made Youtube clips, it was odd watching her sparse performance of the track. Stripped of the internet rumblings and controversy which has dogged her in recent weeks, she was just chanteuse singing a song.
Her performance accurately encompassed the atmosphere of those Youtube clips; melancholy to the max, haunting and suggestive of a suburban, gothic menace lurking in the background.
But what did you make of her performance? Did she live up to the hype or not? Leave a comment below.
