Unimpressed with her SNL performance.

I get that she seems to be struggling with some major nerves, but dang. I'm unconvinced her style of singing lends itself well to a live performance. Maybe it's just her lack of experience and the nerves, but it sounds really forced and fake.

Is it possible she'll have major hype AND major backlash before her album is even out?

Video Games is still a cool song, though.

I've watched a couple of her live performances of Video Games that were WAY better than last night's performance.

She seemed to be slightly off, although I still thought it was good. Probably a combination of nerves, and maybe even some vocal strain? Or maybe she's already a bit tired of singing the song.

Great tune, of course.

I wanted to tell her to stop fidgeting with her hair!

Lovely dress.

I thought Video Games sounded fine. She has absolutely no charisma whatsoever and didn't seem to know what to do when she wasn't singing, but it worked well enough I think.

Blue Jeans sounded like shit. Awful vocals, weird mix, and what was that one dude shouting on the down beat all about?

That was... Unimpressive to say the least.

She definitely needs to work on her stage presence. However, her EP is now #1 in Alternative on iTunes and #2 overall, so her appearance seems to have had the desired effect.

Torched??? That's not fair of Gawker - Brian Williams just thought she stunk up the joint; he wasn't suggesting they set her on fire.

I'm guessing her lips are a fire hazard anyway.

And then when NBCU asked for the email to be taken down, they left it up? Stay classy.

It's a shame she had such an off day on such a big stage. Especially with everyone ready to jump all over her

She seems like a bit of a snoozer live, even after watching the decent performance videos.

I think LDR is best enjoyed at home with a glass of red wine on a winter night, to be honest.
