Did you watch Saturday Night Live last weekend?

It kind of got lost in all the Golden Globes buzz, so we’re finally catching up with it right now.

Apparently, lots of people are upset with the musical guest, newcomer [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lana Del Rey[/lastfm].

She’s been on the receiving end of some pretty harsh critique from not only regular folk, but also people like NBC news anchor Brian Williams and actress/singer [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Juliette Lewis[/lastfm].

So does Lana deserve all this haterade? Carson decided to get your thoughts!

Almost immediately following her performance on NBC, people took to Twitter to blast the singer.

Actress/singer [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Juliette Lewis[/lastfm] also chimed in, initially tweeting:

Wow, watching this ‘singer’ on SNL is like watching a 12yearold [sic] in their bedroom when they’re pretending to sing and perform #signofourtimes.

She later deleted that tweet and replaced it with some nicer words:

And in an email to Gawker owner Nick Denton, NBC news anchor Brian Williams called her performance “one of the worst outings in SNL history.” Ouch!

As for Carson, he didn’t think she was fantastic, but he was surprised by all the outspoken criticism.

Here’s what he had to say:
