Del Rey's performance of 'Video Games' and 'Blue Jeans' on a January episode of SNL was roundly criticised on social media websites and also was mocked on Twitter by actress Juliette Lewis.
The Voice host Daly has now suggested that the incident served as a prime example of the cut-throat state of the music today.
"This Lana Del Rey thing is so interesting because you can rise to fame through YouTube, but it's dangerous," the presenter said in a recent interview with Vulture.
Daly continued: "Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it. We've come back to this Gladiator thing, where the audience is so powerful [where] they do this [a thumbs-up] or this [a thumbs-down]."
Del Rey responded to criticism of Saturday Night Live appearance by admitting the she was very nervous to perform on live television.
Saturday Night Live appeared to defend Del Rey last weekend when Kristen Wiig mocked the claim that the 'Video Games' singer had been the show's worst music guest.
Wiig impersonated Del Rey as she said: "Some said I was the worst musical guest in SNL history. The music stage on Saturday Night Live is hallowed ground, and I failed to reach the high bar set by past guests such as Bubba Sparxxx, the Baha Men, and Shaggy."
Saturday Night Live returns this weekend with guest host Zooey Deschanel and musical guest Karmin.
