Watch Lana Del Rey Play The 2014 Breakthrough Prizes
We’re deep in the thick of awards season, and apparently that extends to realms way beyond music and movies. Lana Del Rey, up for a few Grammys but snubbed for an Oscar, recently performed at a very different awards ceremony. The Breakthrough Prizes honor scientists who have made big developments, and LDR, introduced by Kevin Spacey, sang “Video Games” at their ceremony. The logic, I suppose, was that scientists like video games? Whatever the case, Del Rey has gotten a whole lot better at singing live on TV since the SNL disaster, and you can watch her performance below.

The Breakthrough Prizes air 1/27 at 9PM on the Science Channel. In other LDR news, the singer’s “Once Upon A Dream” (from Disney’s Sleeping Beauty) will debut on iTunes this Sunday night.
