Watch Lana Del Rey On Letterman

By Scott Lapatine / February 3, 2012

It’s been a compelling week of television on CBS’s Late Show. On Tuesday, K-Pop’s Girls’ Generation made their American TV debut to the delight of all of us, and especially guest Bill Murray. Wednesday marked David Letterman’s 30th year in late night, over which Howard Stern got all nostalgic, telling the host, “Back then, the fact that you asked me to be on a national television show was mind-blowing.” And Thursday saw Lana Del Rey — perhaps you’ve heard of her — improve upon her much critiqued SNL bow with a reprise of “Video Games” backed by piano and string quartet. Letterman was charmed (asking if Lana would return tomorrow … and Monday). You can judge the performance below, and we’ve got some photos of her outside the Ed Sullivan Theater above.
