Watch Lana Del Rey’s ‘SNL’ Performance

Earlier this week Lana Del Rey had insisted that her invitation to appear on Saturday Night Live wasn’t a “fluke decision”, even though normally only more established artists are asked to perform on the show. This only set the music blogs and entertainment sites into overdrive.

“I got it because I’m a good musician,” she said. “And I may not have a record out now, but I have been singing for a very long time, and I think that [‘SNL’ creator] Lorne Michaels knows that, and everyone over there knows that.”

Lana Del Rey releases her debut album, ‘Born To Die’, on January 30. The single of the same name, meanwhile, is released a week beforehand on January 23. Lana Del Rey will also appear on “Late Show With David Letterman” on February 2 and “Ellen” later next month.
