Lana Del Rey's Cringe-Worthy Karaoke Sesh! WATCH HERE!

| Filed under: AnglophiliaMusic MinutePerezTVSaturday Night LiveLana Del Rey


We always wondered why breathy, eclectic singer Lana Del Rey fared SO much better in the UK this year than in the US.

We assumed it's because people over in the British Isles didn't see her ear-splitting, debut Saturday Night Live performance…

But now it seems those Brits have their own version of that fateful night, as the girl recently appeared on Later… with Jools Holland to perform her new single Ride, and well, the results are interesting to say the least.

Ch-ch-check out the awkward spectacle (above)!

It seriously sounds like one of those relentless karaoke sessions that seems to go on forreeevvveerrrrrr.

Ah well, maybe one day Lana will be able to take her sweet studio sound we've come to enjoy and apply it to real-life situations?

Like a real life singer?

Here's hoping!

    What's wrong with it? She sounds great….You're rude

  2. lauren says – reply to this


    ..but please tell us more about how immensly talented Cheryl Cole is…

  3. 3

    I don't really understand what she's saying at some parts but I'm more concerned about the fact that she's in a sweat shirt :/

  4. 4

    i'll admit she's not the most animated performer, but when you've got actual talent you don't often need all the theatrics. I love electronic music and enjoy autotune as I like that "space-age" sound in my dance music. But maybe the problem here isn't her performance so much as that we don't know what an actual human voice sounds like anymore. She may not have me jumping out of my seat, but damn can that girl sing.

  5. Erikaka says – reply to this


    Huh?! She sounds exactly like the video. Perfect.

  6. 6

    Re: pie107 – hahaha I know that was the only real thing wrong with it, she didn't bother to put on a proper outfit. her hair and make up are perfect, but her attire is like….lol…I don't even know. She normally wears gowns when she's performing…But the song sounds like that, it's kind of a quiet mid tempo song, and she sang it really well. If you listen to most major recording stars they sound iffy when they perform live, and this website will praise them…But they pick Lana apart all the time.

    As for her faring better over in the UK this year, actually that isn't the case anymore her new record topped the charts in the U.S. and U.K. already, actually charting higher in the U.S. so far.

  7. 7

    She must have pissed off perez, he usually is praising her to the heavens above. He always does this when the celebrities stop paying him.

  8. 8

    hmmz not cringe worthy but not amazing either…..she kinda bores me a bit, but thats just my opinion.

  9. 9

    Her performance was fine, she the type of singer that sings in the mood she is feeling not exactly how the record is every single time. I love to watch her perform, I understand her. It wasn't her best live version of ride, I like the live one she did for KIIS FM. She's a real artist, I adore her.

  10. 10

    I just can't get past the inflated lips. Does anyone find that attractive?

  11. Perezisabully says – reply to this


    I think she sounds great, she may be a little nervous, especially playing on SNL. In the US everyone 's a critic. When i read some of the articles on here i cringe because the editing is heinous, but that doesn't mean you or your staff isn't knowledgeable about grammar or the English language. I mean i come across so many misspellings it's crazy, but those mistakes don't take away from the articles message/gossip. The GIRL IS AMAZING HER VIDEOS, POETRY, and LYRICS are deep and real, they may be dark, but refreshing. She is an artist not a perfect super human, everyone is going to have good days and bad days. I like Lana and i support her even if she didn't have a bra throwing performance, she still wowed me and would love to see her live. I mean at least she isn't lip syncing like ever other popular artist these days. I would rather listen to her play live then a cranked up version of her album. Her music/lyics/visuals are so deep, raw and interconnected that to me seeing her live would be a real treat. I mean have you ever been to a lil wayne concert, you can't even make out what the dude is even saying, I love kid cudi too, but the he forgets his lyrics during live shows all the time, but both artist have messages i enjoy.

  12. 12

    You should check out what she did at the itunes festival, especially the video games … well that one not for her singing but for what she did with her fans, she is so incredibly sweet with them. Or her live in Hackney concert she's damn good there.

  13. Halie says – reply to this


    So she's not getting pelleted with rain on a stage like Rhianna who is as awful a live singer as she is a person… Lana has real talent and is completely original - she is showing people who she really is with her songs and her low key attire I feel. no fake-ness here!

  14. Nicole says – reply to this


    I am not a fan of hers in general. But, I think it sounds good. I expected it to sound worse than her SNL performance. This was much better than that. Not exactly cringe-worthy.

  15. 15

    Comments about talent from an ape-faced homo who has his nose shoved into the filthy, over-used, and completely talentless Kardashian vag is entirely too funny. I'm not a Del Rey fan at all, but you, Perez, saying anything about real-life talent when one considers the hacks you worship, and your own lack of talent at anything and everything, is something I'd find to be outrageous if I didn't know what a brainless, hypocritical piece of shit you are.

  16. Shelton says – reply to this


    She's a great singer. Great performance.

  17. 17

    damn it perez you should have put up the ride performance she did on Langs de Leeuw, she was perfection and so endearing, you can see the other guest singer along with the audience just fall in love with her. I just watched it on youtube. she didn't sing it as low this time, it was really beautiful.

  18. Emmie says – reply to this


    I think she did great, what are you complaining about Perez?

  19. 19

    Better than 75% of every Eurovision Song Contest singer (which isn't saying much). The song was kind of boring but not terrible either.

  20. almty says – reply to this


    Just listened to it with quality earphones to see if there's any truth in your claims. Couldn't find anything wrong or awkward about it. She sounded just fine. As always, you don't know jack shit about music.

  21. nikki says – reply to this


    What the heck? she sounds fucking amazing, perez you have no idea what youre talking about. Just because she doesnt perform like a pop singer that doesnt mean she sucks. This is a beautiful performance you wouldnt know what a good singer is if it punched you in the face.

  22. Robert says – reply to this


    You are being way too tough on her Perez, it wasn't as bad as you made it out to be.

  23. Dallas says – reply to this


    I dig it. You're a twat.

  24. 24

    She sounds great to me I love her I think your just a fucking loser and a hater. Go back to Gaga I know this is probably not mainstream enough for you

  25. windy says – reply to this


    What was wrong with it? oh i know just because its not filled with glitter bombs and auto tune or anything like KESHA its bad right? WRONG! Such a hater

  26. Keshia says – reply to this


    She sounds perfectly fine to me. US is too critically and picky at times with its artists. That's why most of them prefer to go overseas and sell albums.

  27. Matt says – reply to this


    perez hilton, you're rude and a fake. tweeting at lana and now posting this? she sounds great, how dare you? its funny how you have something to say about everyone but you're actually quite irrelavent.

  28. 28

    I can't get over the fact that this woman is still only in her 20s, and was attractive to begin with, yet has had so many plastic surgeries. She looks completely artificial. She has absolutely zero charisma or stage presence. And she simply cannot sing. I have no clue how she has become so popular.

  29. 29

    I don't hear anything wrong with this, she has a beautiful voice. And I also find it funny that he was singing her praises and now hates her. MAKE UP YOUR MIND PEREZ.

  30. 30

    If you just listen to it and don't watch the video, she actually sounds great… Perez, you're way off on this one, sorry

  31. Takuhi says – reply to this


    Perez.. She sounds amazing… She's as she sounds on record except for the squeeks and high pitches of the mic. Come on, she's better than brittney Effen spears, who doesn't even have a voice. She rocked it!

  32. Hector Manzano says – reply to this


    You are so mean A.H! she is so dont to earth you dont know her Ive seen her in interviews shes a really shy person but that's what makes her a down to earth person and SashaSkye your correct she doesn't need all the theatrical stuff to be great!

  33. 33

    Re: secretstar – Uh…I think she only had a lip augmentation that's gone down since lol. She looks the same otherwise, and I would like to hear you try to sing in lower registers like she does. It really isn't easy.

    Re: RachelSarahNYC – Gaga stopped talking to Perez like a year ago, she's over his bullying. He was doing so well turning it around but now he's reverting back slowly.

  34. 34

    A damn sight better than Taylor,Katy,Britney and the rest of the dolts you have under contract.

  35. 35

    I don't get this.. She's a much better live singer than a lot of the other singers you seem to worship, so why is it you always pick on her? She sounded perfectly fine to me - not as great as her last few performances of Ride, but you didn't bother posting those, did you? :)

  36. 36

    I know the whole lip thing is confusing but they appear bigger when she wears pale lip stick on the Langs de Leeuw show she also performed ride live and is wearing dark lip stick her lips look normal and they are both recent performances.

  37. 37

    does she ever practice!?! Lana, if you just rehearse instead of making up new notes and lyrics as you sing on Live TV you would be fine!! I love her but she gets so nervous it makes me nervous

  38. 38

    Honestly, I am more bothered by each and every performance by Taylor Swift who : 1) cannot sing 2) cannot write good music 3) makes an obscene amount of money when actual musicians cannot get the time of day.

  39. Alejandra Salazar says – reply to this


    SHE SOUNDS GREAT someones jealous…

  40. Ally says – reply to this


    Perez Hilton……once a bully always a bully.

  41. KG says – reply to this


    She sounds a lot better on this than on SNL, she could've been nervous on SNL, it's kind of a big deal. I'd be scared shitless and shaken to bones and vocal cords. So I'm not gonna hate.

  42. Matilda says – reply to this


    She was probably just having a bad day or really nervous. The video below proves that she can sing beautifully.

  43. Corvin says – reply to this


    What's up Perez? You are really rude… it does not sound that bad… at least not worse than Katy Perry/Rihanna or Ke$ha live… but I assume you are buddies with those or get money for promoting their 'artful' music.

  44. LM says – reply to this


    Ouuuh that part in the end when her voice broke… :/

    Those of you who don't think there's anything wrong didn't watch until the end. Also the flow was really strange, like she was out of breath and at times too close or far from the mic. Someone from her team needs to get her a voice coach!

  45. tara says – reply to this


    I dont understand why you say this is so bad?

  46. lynnw says – reply to this


    guess anyone can sound good in the studio….real talent can sound good LIVE!! she wasnt a great singer when she was lizzie grant either!

  47. Paul says – reply to this


    Perez kill yourself lana is amazing and it sounds great no one.ikes you

  48. Sean says – reply to this


    Completely fine and fantastic performance, in my eyes. Maybe that's why your attempt at a record company/signing/promoting artists failed, Perez? Because you seem to know little about quality music. Anyone remember Slimmy? This performance was one of Lana's best, I really don't understand what you, God of all things music, could see wrong with it? Anything wrong in the vocal area or any little pitching problems could be put down to technical errors….anyone else hear that feedback throughout the song from the mic? Get over it, Perez you melter.

  49. youareahypocrite says – reply to this


    Re: Pansy Hunter
    you're supporting his website by being here - soaking in the celebrity stories just as much as he.. you're a hyprocrite on your own bud.

  50. Kris says – reply to this


    Perez you are a knob. She sounds fine. Stop being harsh. Sometimes the facts on this site are shockingly wrong and you should really check yourself before you wreck yourself.

  51. 51

    She's better than most of the autotuned crap out there, even though she's a fraud…

  52. c986 says – reply to this


    I love this performance, I think she's brilliant - her voice is so special and I would adore the opportunity to see her live. I think she sounds fantastic in this, you can actually hear her emotion. I fail to see why some people dislike it, I suppose everyone has different tastes but still.. She's bringing something new to the music scene and I couldn't thank her enough for doing this.

  53. 53

    I think Perez can't be more off with his statements saying it was cringe-worthy. I thought it was absolutely fine, and she sounded great. Better than she has in past live sessions. There are several artists that are much more famous than her that perform worse than this (Katy Perry anyone?). She did great here, stop being an ass for no reason.

  54. Arrora says – reply to this


    She completely sucks, why anyone likes her is shocking and her lip injections are horrible, she's going to look like Taylor Armstrong soon. She has no talent, her voice is aweful.Re: secretstar – Agreed!

  55. tr18 says – reply to this


    Re: lauren – agree

  56. 56

    so this is cringe worthy and every performance of taylor swift's is not? right…

  57. Miranda says – reply to this


    I totally disagree. I think she sang this song beautifully! I love me some LDR!

  58. 58


    This is awful. And her face.

  59. 59

    and anyone who says this is a good performance is on the same crack as LiLo

  60. 60

    she always sounds crap and off key and looks like a depressed zombie. frankly she's about as animated as a cardboard cut out. If she werent pretty this girl would be absolutely nothing.

  61. 61

    This isn't half bad actually. I don't know what you're talking about Perez, but this isn't cringe-worthy. It's a little better than her SNL peformance. I actually like her music, and she has gotten a little better with her live performances (iTunes Festival). But I still believe that she's more of a recording artist than a live artist. I rather listen to her than any current Top 40 crap that is being fed to us on the radio. People overseas love her, but here in the US, people just seem to criticize her. At least she's actually singing, unlike SOME artists who lip-sync or sound terrible live (Katy Perry, Rihanna, shall I go on?)

  62. 62

    Re: lauren – HAHAHA! Great point, Lauren. So freaking true. Cheryl Cole is a hack. Perez has the WORST taste in music. He has little room to judge anyone.

    I'm just started listening to Lana del ray and I think she was an interesting sound. By no means am I her #1 fan but this perform is fine. Perez is such a bully.

  63. Supremecourtney says – reply to this


    It was fine!! Why is this so cringeworthy?

    So she doesn't dance around the stage and lip sync!

    Stop giving her such bad press!

  64. perezisashit says – reply to this


    she sound good , idk why he's hating so much , i remembered him a few weeks ago praising her record , its really weird , but i really dont know how this men can be famous, hes such an annoying person and rude :S

  65. Tess says – reply to this


    I think it was lovely. THAT'S unapologetic. Beautiful.

  66. HG says – reply to this


    she sounds amazing! can't believe you support nicki minaj who has 0 talent, yet criticize Lana, who is original and has a beautiful unique voice. SMH PEREZ

  67. cechl says – reply to this


    I hear nothing wrong in this performance! She's just different from other artists! tons better than others like Britney or Madonna, they're far worst than her.

  68. Stephanie yerrr says – reply to this


    So u destroy this performance but love talentless people,s lip syncing performances such as britney spears, minaj. Kesha and Bieber?

  69. cherrychoke says – reply to this


    why dosen't anyone ever link her good live performances?

  70. 70

    youre a fucking asshole you hide behind your computer you try doing what lana does and then lets see how much people judge you. just stop perez you are getting meaner by the day

  71. Stevie says – reply to this


    Perez gone deaf? This is brilliant. It's a shame he wouldn't know talent if it smacked him in the middle of his smug face. Getting back to his bullying ways, clearly. Man up and do some talent on your research you joke.

  72. 72

    I'm usually not as polarized as this about things, but you're truly rude and have extremely questionable taste.

    She sounds great here, just like her on the studio. She is truly original and emotional. I find it so fascinating that you blindly support pop artists that are horrible live, but criticize a true original.

    You're entitled to your opinions, just as countless people (see comments) are entitled to tell you that we think you're wrong…..

  73. ALEEX says – reply to this



  74. Shawn says – reply to this



  75. wondermath says – reply to this


    perez you're just so f*ckin stupid…you just should shut the f*ck up with this cheesy bad musical taste of yours…the Wanted?? Really?? Chery Cole?? Really??? stupid poor little man…

  76. 76

    Wow DAMN is it clear that people hate you and you have horrible taste in music. This makes it all the more hilarious and ironic that you begged SIMON COWELL TO ALLOW YOU TO BECOME A JUDGE ON X FACTOR!!! PEOPLE JUST. DONT. LIKE. YOU. How have you not realized that yet? And your audacious attempts at becoming a "critic" of music and musicals is purely comedical trash. You are completely blind to the fact that people see you for what you really are - a bully who will never change and who begs to be famous when he has no talent to give. Do us all a favor and retire early with your mommy and dog and leave the internet in peace. ;) K THX!

  77. 77

    one thing, before the extra judgment, this song is a very low key and difficult to sing live at parts. I love Lana and all she does. I enjoy listening to her songs on my ipod and that's what counts.

  78. Deckard says – reply to this


    you are a fat and ugly hate how dare you pig.

  79. ningninggin says – reply to this


    I find it crazy that Lana Del Rey has always been criticised because of her live singing voice. I know nothing bout her and her music but I got curious cos so many has bashed her SNL performance so I googled that and then I googled a bit more videos of her singing live and I really found nothing wrong with them, I even find her voice really nice live, and became sort of fan of hers. She has her style, this early 60s look and way of singing and it suits her, her music and her voice. She doesn't do a LOT of theatrics with her "costumes" and performances and this is the problem with people who are so used to seeing a lot of Nickis and Rihannas and some others who would I guess perform naked live to catch more attention. Im not saying they are less talented than Lana, but, they could also sing better live, right? But no one would say anything to them cos everyone's already distracted with the crazy hair and costumes and all that stuff….

  80. Jackson says – reply to this


    She suffers really bad nerves. And this performance was good. So she doesn't strip half naked and dance like she's on extacy, she is a true performer tha possesses exceptional talent. Unlike you, you twat.

  81. MAESY says – reply to this


    Re: Pansy Hunter – couldn't have said it better!

  82. DanD says – reply to this


    To be honest.. it wasn't bad at all, the song is great, but not so much for live performance. Katy Perry singing, that's cringe-worthy. Wonder why Perez never mentioned that in the million posts about her. Every time she sings Firework live, I have to press "mute".

  83. 83

    Meh. Pretty to look at, boring as hell.

  84. Jack says – reply to this


    This was an amazing performance. You need to seriously change your attitude and stop being mean for the sake of being mean. Jealousy, like most things, doesn't look good on you.

  85. 85

    You guys don't get it. This is her style of singing. She IS perfection. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean she is terrible. Other people think she sounds and looks amazing, so just let them be fans.

  86. bryn says – reply to this


    don't really see the problem here

  87. Ludivine says – reply to this


    She doesn't sound that bad. We can all recall Ashlee Simpson, can we not? There could be far worse.

  88. Amber says – reply to this


    Not that bad - her outfit is terrible however. I've heard many worse live performances….

  89. skyler says – reply to this


    Dont talk about my lana del rey like that you stupid whore. I will bite your dick off!

  90. PANDORA124 says – reply to this


    she's amazing!! I think when you have so much talent like lana del rey or Adele you dont need the fireworks behind you everythime you perform.Nicki or Rihanna will kill to have half of her talent.

  91. Kaylie says – reply to this


    She sounds fine! Can't lie but I do love her, I couldn't find anything wrong with her performance. She did a great job.

  92. Zilla says – reply to this


    First you hate Lana, then you kiss her ass over "cola" then you post this? MAKE UP YOUR FUCKING MIND. You don't deserve any friendships if you throw your friends under a bus.

  93. Gabe says – reply to this


    Pretty decent vocal actually. Some of those notes are not easy at all. She was on key throughout. I don't care for her music but this is not at all a bad vocal performance.

  94. 94

    she sounds a little like Nico and Nico was known for being nearly tone-deaf. not every artist is going to sound the same and they have different ways of commuicating. I wouldn't call her a good vocalist but she's a good singer and stayed in her not so flattering key the whole time so whatever. she's not bad but she's not good either.

  95. Ctnt says – reply to this


    could you imagine having to sing the same 'breathy' song over and over and over again? give the woman a break. she puts her art and heart into everything she does and maybe she just didn't feel it this night. isn't everyone allowed to slip up once or twice?! your article rips her unnecessarily. you know damn well she's an incredible one of a kind artist this industry needed. how dare you let this performance decide your nasty opinion of her.. i'm ashamed of you perez. not like i gave a shit about your opinion anyways lol her true fans wont let this take her down

  96. james says – reply to this


    what is wrong with this performance? why are you such a dick? honestly. you pick certain entertainers to victimize while others you pander to so that they will be nice to you. GROW UP. it's not high school. this is real life. dumb fuck.

  97. 97

    She sounds great! Perez needs to get his ears checked.

  98. 98

    Bleh. Lana Del Rey is a classic case of the Emperor's New Clothes. Applaud for her, those of you who want to seem chic and cutting edge! That's how the record company put her together for you. Talentless and unintelligent crap.

  99. Stephen says – reply to this


    This is beautiful! Perez isn't rude, he just has no taste.

  100. marianne says – reply to this


    she sounds like her video…perez you honestly need help or something
