Exclusive: Rihanna to Perform on ‘SNL’ Halloween Show


Live from New York, it’s Rihanna! The pop princess is set to return to “Saturday Night Live” this month as the musical guest.

Rap-Up.com has exclusively learned that the “Only Girl (In the World)” hitmaker will take the stage at 30 Rock for the late-night show’s October 30 Halloween episode hosted by “Mad Men’s” Jon Hamm. She will perform material from her fifth album in five years, Loud, arriving two weeks later on November 16.

The Bajan songstress made headlines after her December 2009 appearance on the show, where she acted alongside cast member Andy Samberg in the comedic Digital Short “Shy Ronnie.” The clip earned her co-star an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics for the song.

Additional musical guests on “SNL” this month include Kanye West on Saturday and Bruno Mars’ debut appearance on October 9. This will mark Rihanna’s second performance on the show.

    Whoops, you must’ve missed that this is about Rihanna and nobody needed to bring up Ciara! That’s okay, we all make mistakes, like the fact that her name is “Ciara” not “Ci-Error”…
