Watch: Jessica Lange Wows With Lana Del Rey Cover on 'American Horror Story: Freak Show'

Despite taking place during the early ’50s, “American Horror Story: Freak Show,” takes a page out of Baz Luhrmann’s book in not sticking to music accurate to the era, but instead indulging in any tune across the time spectrum, so long as it fits the scene.

First she tackled David Bowie and now in this week’s episode of “Freak Show,” German circus diva Elsa Mars (Jessica Lange) gives us everything we’ve ever wanted in her dazzling performance of Lana Del Rey’s “Gods and Monsters” from her 2012 album, “Paradise.” Imagery of Elsa surrounded by her gang of outcasts is accompanied by foreboding scenes of supernatural newcomer, Edward Modrake (Wes Bentley) creeping through green fog. 

Check out the full performance below:
