Daniel Radcliffe

Lana Del Rey Wasn't THAT Bad

on 'Saturday Night Live'

Daniel Radcliffe is coming to the defense of the singer he introduced on "Saturday Night Live" this weekend ... sorta.

Radcliffe was at the Bafta nominations ... when he was asked about Lana Del Rey -- who's been TRASHED by music critics and people with ears alike who suffered through her baffling performance on the show (below).

Radcliffe responded, "It was unfortunate that people seemed to turn on her so quickly."

He added, "I also think people are making it about things other than the performance. If you read what people are saying about her online, it's all about her past and her family and stuff that's nobody else's business."

Radcliffe concluded, "I don't think it warranted anywhere near that reaction."

They should make up for that poor performance by booking Charice now that is a girl that can sing if they want to really show people what a good singer is.

Wow a real live voice. To bad most of the songs we hear these days are so amp and auto tuned we cant appreciate a real raw performance.

Never heard of her before this, have NO idea about her family or her/their past and the performance was really bad.

Seriously, I believe people didn't like her because she was in a gown, and so they expected something melodic. Had she been in freakish outfit and sang that same song, people would have liked her. She reminded me of Rickie Lee Jones singing Chuck E's In Love. Same sort of singing....
The dress just threw people off.

Does Daniel Radcliff have hearing problems? I'd never heard of this person, but that was one of the worst performances I'd ever heard.

Never heard of her before, so I know nothing of family smut but I know a horrible voice when I hear one. Has she done better before?
