Video: Rihanna and Drake Perform ‘What’s My Name?’ at Grammys

Rihanna and Drake

Rihanna got close to Drake during their first-ever performance of “What’s My Name?” at Sunday’s Grammys. Dressed in a fringe skirt, the red-haired singer danced in front of a roaring bonfire as her Young Money co-star grinded up behind her. Watch as the dynamic duo turns up the temperature onstage.

    YEAH BOY!

    Not bad for being sick. Vocally I think she was a bit stronger in the first performance but Good JOB RIH. The rehearsal video brought the hype up for me but I was still impressed. The most consistent artist is a good description.

    vocally totally off, but if she was ill, it should be a good excuse.

    Umm did you just say catastrophic? Catastrophic would be her performance at the 2009 AMA’s, boring, hardly any movement, etc. Plenty of movement, energy, and she really exceled especially considering she’s sick with bronchitis and laryngitis. Horrible throat viruses, i have no idea how she performed so I definitely give her props.

    And somebody should tell Rihanna that you should hold the mic up to your mouth when lip synching.

    Everything was A1 until the screaming part (which she hardly ever does right) But after that part was over It got back to being great. Good Job Rih.

    In MY opinion, Rihanna’s performance was one one of the bests, although it was was sexed-up. MY Bes Performance were :Bruno Mars, Janelle Monae, B.O.B: are most definitely gifted and talented, they had by far the best performance of the night. it wasn’t sexed-up at all, only true talents. Thats what music should be about!! Justin bieber &Jaden Smith and Usher, Eminen feat. Rihanna, Dr. Dre and that lady. I missed the tribute to Aretha Franklin, no critic. The other performances Missed or I just didn’t care for.

    this performance wasn’t good at all.everybody keeps saying she looks good but thats how she looks all the time so whats so new about that. plus they looked like a wanna be jay-z and beyonce on stage with the whole grabbing her ass and shit. she just did this performance so people can talk about her grinding on drake but the performance was shitty and drakes sorry ass decided to do this wack ass performance. drake sucked at the grammys for real this year.he could do better then that. I mean I like rihanna’s music but she is just a musician for show and her looks. she brings nothing new to industry that really stands out. but she will be done soon because the real queen bee beyonce is coming back into the scene. so rihanna can keep acting like a slut that she is.

    This was hot!! She usually performs this song just standing in one place & shaking her hips, but I loved that she was all over the stage & dancing like crazy!! Rihanna you need to dance more often (i.e. ALWAYS!)

  48. Rihanna is a lot hotter in person!

    Hot performance. Chick has a hot body and stunning in person. I loved the performance just wished if it was longer. The guys and in fact a lot of the ladies were loving it on twitter. She got so many proposals from just this performance and her red carpet dress. So many people were asking her to marry them and be their valentine on twitter. I got a kick out of it.

Rihanna does the same 3 moves and shakes her ass like thats gonna change ppls opinions srry you dont do it like beyonce. PLZZ just sit in the audience next time and watch, let the real performers go on stage.

    I just want to say read all the comments so far and need to say this….. At the end of the day you could love or hate Rihanna, but the facts are this, more people in the WORLD eg. Australia, New Zealand, UK, Europe, China, Caribbean, Latin America, USA & else where love her music and buy it. That is how she got to where she is now.. She makes music for all. It is not just R&B, it has rock in it a little for the country crowd eg(california king bed), some soul, some caribbean vibes, and much more. Her music is diverse and appeals to the majority not minority. Rap only appeals to a rap audience give or take, r&b like wise give or take… So if you hate her remember you are just a minority in a fish pond of trillions and your opinion my count here but others have proven you wrong… Have a wonderful day/night……:)

    It was a bit much, her voice was weak & the dancing, just needed 2 be toned down. Performance was organized well but it’s like she was trying to have sex on stage. Please Rihanna, this was the Grammy’s, not the VMA’s…
