Plot: A squealing, off-key voice can only mean one thing on SNL: Lana Del Rey in in the house. Indeed, the singer widely panned for her musical performance on the show three weeks ago appeared on Weekend Update to apologize. Played expertly by Kristen Wiig, Del Rey seemed humbled by the criticism. Always-charming Seth Meyers noted that he thought she was great, but Del Ray explained that she failed to live up to the SNL performance bar set by such lauded acts as the Baha Men and Shaggy – what, no Ashlee Simpson jab? After all, lip-synching could have only helped Del Rey.
