    I saw this, she was awful, worst performer of the night hands down. She was out of tune, she was miming at one point, then they were playing the backing track & she was singing out of tune. She’s a really stiff dancer too. I wasn’t impressed. Her 15 minutes are almost up.

    @Jay, I REALLY REALLY hate to say this because I am a huge Rihanna fan but there was something terribly wrong with this performance! She was off beat, she was mumbling through the songs at one point, her higher notes were awful and the dancing was terrible! I love Rih but she needs to take a break and have some rest. She’s been on tour since June and she seems extremely tired and hopeless. She needs to take some vocal lessons so she sounds better live. And maybe she should STOP releasing albums so fast (every November) and actually give an album some good promotion! Yes I like Rihanna but she doesn’t sound very good LIVE anymore like she used to! :(

    @:), Gald that you ain’t just a dumb fan & you can see this too. There was a time when I liked her but she is at her worst. If she’s been on tour since June then she only has herself to blame. That performance was a joke.

    @DenimJunkieKidd, Hell yeah. She’s not a real singer. She’s like Janet jackson, and madonna (not on their level)great performers but can’t sing a lick. The performs was weak. But she’s been none stop performing.

    I’m a huuuuge Rihanna fan, but damn she sounded really really bad! I think she need to take some rest as soon as she can! Her performances are not getting better at all. Just focus on making a few killer videos, no concerts, studio recordings, interviews, non off that!

    On a serious note , it is quite sad to see that this is the girl that everyone talks about and that has achieved to have 11th number one song in USA. When you have people with real talent that can’t get into Top10.

    Music Industry has come to a sad end.

    [Reply]

    Jofan12 Reply:

    @Kilyan, Please tell the ppl that love her. She needs to go. Too much thirst and no talent. Her looks can only take her sooo far. And yet Real SINGERS can’t catch a break cuz of music like this. #Justsaying. It’s time to make a change in the music world or it’ll be lost. R&B I.M.O is already losing to the pop world. When will it stop? I will never look up to her! We need a better FEMALE ROLE MODEL’s who has Talent and Class. RIRI stans i’m just being real. It’s time for someone new to take the lead.

    I have put her in the same category than Cassie !

    @Jofan12,

    I agree with you in the sense that the music industry is going to the crapper…but to Rihanna’s defense, when she tried singing on Loud (which was good for her range), she didn’t really get the cred that I think she should’ve got. Just my opinion.

    I would def put her in the same category as Janet, Madonna, and other artists who are more entertainers than singers…but I’m hoping that she can take from them and get a more organized show. I don’t understand why they haven’t given her a choreographer…because she CAN dance, she’s just probably more familiar with the dances from her island.

    She should capitalize on that…I’m not worried about her voice. Not all musicians can sing…but she should take some time to improve and enhance her stage presence. It wouldn’t hurt her.

    Kyle Reply:

    @brainfood.com, I agree! There is no reason why Rihanna wouldn’t be able to dance. Get her a choreographer and I bet she would kill it on stage and please, for her cause just LET HER LIP SYNC because she is NOT A VOCALIST. Her voice is so strained when she *tries* to perform live. I remember I watched a performance she did of “Pon Da Replay” back in 2005 and that was actually the best performance I’ve ever seen from her. She was dancing, she was *attempting* to sing and she was interacting with the crowd pretty well. Now she just walks around, looks like an idiot (especially with that blonde wig), and sounds like a HOT MESS. #whatajoke.

    That was the most horrible singing I’ve seen. Especially in we found love. Ugh We need those underated singers that can actually entertain and sing. Im so over Rih

    shes never been a great performer or singer but she normaly is better than this she looks really tired i hope she gets some rest i wish her all the best

  13. Kyle

    I honestly don’t think Rihanna was meant for this; she just gets really lucky and finds the right people to work with that give her #1 hits and tweak her voice in the studio. If she was good live it would be a whole different story but she just IS NOT a performer by any means. I have yet to see a performance by her that leaves me thinking, “damn that was awesome!”…and this performance was just BAD. Like laughable BAD.

    [Reply]

  14. hey

    sorry but this performance was horrible

    [Reply]

  15. wow

    this was really bad the vocals was really bad she need 2 take a year off n let someone get some shin like ciara n keri hilson then come back n take over again

    She’s never a great performer, but she’s usually a little better than that. Don’t know if she was sick or tired but that was one of her worst performance ever.

    [Reply]

  21. Um.Well.Sure.

    Am I the only one who thinks she must be sick or something because even though she’s not the greatest live singer she’s usually better than this. Also, it’s so funny that people keep saying that pop music isn’t “real music”. Wth are you talking about? Some of you need to look up the definition of music before you spew out stupidity. Just because you don’t “prefer” her genre of music doesn’t make it any less “real” than any other form of music.

    Vocals are just awful..embarassing actually. Whether she goes on a vacation or not, she still can’t sing for shit. I like her though so maybe she should half the number of venues she does for her tours.

    I think a great singer Rihanna, on her show was almost three months, loved it, she sang beautifully california king, only girl reaching high notes, Rihanna is vocally and physically tired, she’s on tour since June, he recorded the album, fatigue is inevitable!

    [Reply]

    love her music. but I will never see her in concert. this is not a good performance. I thought all those shows would loosen her up. again great music not good performer.

    What Rihanna is doing right now is fulfilling her tour commitments or contract of 102 days of touring. Many says she looks and sounds tired, i think she would be after a 95 days of touring. However, Rihanna cannot just pull out of her tour duties because she’s tired. She has to complete her schedule tour dates & appearances in between then take a break which will be used to promote Talk That Talk meaning interviews.

    I admire & respect Rihanna because even though she’s exhausted she’s still executing her duties as an artist & pleasing fans Globally! So you can bitch & moan all you want but she’s bringing in that phat cheque, pleasing her fans, continuing to create history within her artistry one step at a time, & fulfilling her own dreams at the very young age of 23. How many of you can say you’re fulfilled at that age?…

    I’m the biggest Rihanna fan out there but truth is truth … this wasn’t Rihanna’s best performance. Her vocals were off and her dance moves were a bit mediocre. But she has done better. I’ve seen her live at the live tour she is definitely an amazing signer and dancer. Hopefully she was just drunk. But to say she has bad album sales and the reign has let up is dumb of you. Because TTT is #1 on iTunes in numerous countries. She’s sold thousands of albums before it eve dropped (pre-orders) and she still stands at a high rank on the charts. Please come correct. Thanks
