The only other artist to do it was Natalie Imbruglia.

LDR was fucking horrid.
It actually surprises me that no other artist has in the past 14 years

the end. you're focusing on something that isn't even part of this conversation PEACE OUT BRO

I'll say it again, she was honestly one of the worst performances on SNL I've ever seen. And it wasn't because she was boring or just standing there, it was because she's completely fucking tone-deaf and kept randomly breaking out in some bizarre fake German accent like she was possessed.

It wasn't nerves either, look at literally all of her live performances that haven't been through editing. She's terrible (not to mention completely fake, but that's another story).
I don't know even know who this chick is, but I had to watch after you said all that.

I saw this live. I had no idea who that girl was (I thought it was Isla Fisher for a second). Wow, was this horrendous! Who's cock (or cocks) did she have to suck to get on SNL???

Dreadful performance. What was with the weird Russian/German accent that came and went? She was so pitchy and so boring. How has she become this buzz artist?

Phoenix put out "It's Never Been Like That" on Astralwerks in 2006 in the US. They're a division of Virgin.

She's definitely not tone-deaf. She's just a little inconsistent with her expressions.

Haha.

What the OP should read is that Lana Del Rey is the first artist in 14 years to perform on SNL before releasing an album at all. Her first physical album is out at the end of the month; she put out a digital EP a few months ago. Impressive considering SNL is pretty huge for any artist, but less so when you consider the money behind her and who her supporters are.

She's the definition of a manufactured talent; stage name chosen by the label, promoted by billionaire daddy, and hyped by every blog and magazine that they could buy. Nobody will know who she is in a year.

Exactly. She can't sing and performance was boring as hell!

As indifferent as I am to LDR I was sure that at worst she'd do a mediocre job on SNL. This was pretty horrid though, I got major second hand embarrassment from this.

she does have another full length out, but from a tiny independent, so "major" is still important in the messaging.

Honestly, I think everyone is shitting all over her too much because it's the cool thing to do. "Video Games" is a good song, whereas the rest has somewhat fallen flat. It's not her fault she's gotten so popular, but it is her fault for not being ready for it. She clearly is too nervous for tv and still needs time.

I'll probably enjoy her album, but no matter how good it is it'll be torn apart which is kind of a sad state of affairs

Interestingly, Karmin will be the musical guest in a few weeks when Zooey Deschanel hosts, so if you thought Lana Del Rey was horrible, get ready for that. Also, they too have yet to release a studio album.
