'AHS: Freak Show' Exclusive: Watch Jessica Lange cover 'Life on Mars'

Posted on

Jessica Lange Freak Show

There were several amazing moments from last night’s premiere of American Horror Story: Freak Show, from Sarah Paulson’s amazing two-headed performance to Twisty’s horrifying grin. But the one everyone’s talking about is a Baz Luhrmann-esque cover of David Bowie’s “Life on Mars”—performed, appropriately enough, by Elsa Mars (Jessica Lange).

EW has exclusive video of the number from the premiere below. It’s worth watching over and over again, if only to see Lange pulled out on a wooden rocket.
