Lana Del Rey didn't exactly get rave reviews for her Saturday Night Live performance, but she seems to have made a fan of David Letterman. After she sang a simpler version of her "Video Games" hit last night, Letterman jokingly asked if she could come back tonight, notes the Huffington Post. "My pleasure," she replied. "How about Monday?" he then added.

Nice job, writes Natalia Buia at andPOP: "It goes to show Lana really does have the chops to pull such a melodramatic song off and that her flop on SNL was only caused by nerves." Adds Matthew Perpetua at Rolling Stone, “She comes off as understandably self-conscious in her singing, but delivers a much more controlled and dramatic performance than on SNL."
