Lana Del Rey Performs ‘Video Games’ on U.K. Talk Show
Lana Del Rey treated British viewers of 'The Jonathan Ross Show' to a live performance over the weekend. The 25-year-old newcomer sang 'Video Games,' the song that put her on the map.
"I get very sad when I play that song," Del Rey has said about the emotional track, which helped earn her record deals in the U.K. and the U.S. "I still cry sometimes when I sing it."
She didn't shed any tears this time around, but Del Rey brought plenty of emotion to the performance, belting out the song while her band and a string section provided the musical accompaniment. Del Rey looked glamorous as scattered light from a disco ball reflected around the studio and she showed off the many layers of her voice as she sang, "It's you, it's you, it's all for you / Everything I do / I tell you all the time / Heaven is a place on Earth with you / Tell me all the things you want to do."
'Video Games' is one of the key tracks on Del Rey's debut album 'Born to Die,' which drops Jan. 31 in the U.S. She may perform the song again this weekend when she serves as the musical guest on 'Saturday Night Live.'
