Rihanna Performs ‘We Found Love,’ Duets with Coldplay at Grammys

Rihanna and Chris Martin

Blondes have more fun as Rihanna proved during her performance at Sunday’s Grammy Awards. The Bajan babe kicked off her set with her No. 1 smash “We Found Love,” parading across the stage with a troupe of dancers. “Grammys, make some noise for Whitney!” she said in tribute to the late legend. She later slowed it down, dueting with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin on their collaboration “Princess of China” as the Staples Center was aglow with lights.

    @YOYO, This was not a outstanding performance. People must be really bored with the show b/c ya’ll make it seem like she talented as chris brown. Her voice was a mess and she can’t dance. Im just telling the truth. It was not Grammy worthy! And she didn’t have on heels and she was off balance. But cute red carpet look. She needs but implants fast tho!

    @RihannaNavy, Are you kidding me… That was 1 of the worst performances of the entire night… Minus the country music! Did ubhear Rhi’s voice cracking and her running out of breath during her duet w/ the lead singer of Coldplay… Peep homie face… PAUSE!

    I loved it she shut it down with the We Found Love performance giving us LIVE vocals that were on point AND dancing. Others should take note. But to be honest she did sound a little rugged on Princess of China but that was expected after the We Found Love performance and Coldplay did not sound hot either what happened.

    ok : her performance was ok at last the vocals are almost on point but not yet for a singer with her business level nevertheless she s not singing a lot on this performance. Maybe one day she will honor her business level and honor her fans instead foolin’ blind people.The choreography was great. Her body is on point : thanx to her body and beautiful face

    Her vocals were a little off. She’s improved though, but she looks a mess on stage. Colplay did amazing though.

    She smashed that performance…def one of the best performances of her career…and she always brings it at the Grammys..when she performed last year…her and drake killed it…I’m tellin u…she gets better and better wih every album…vocals on point…and just the right amount of dancing…I wished she and Coldplay did the ‘princess of china’ better and more detail…but over all…one of the best performances of the night…and her dress at the red carpet…she was beyond fine…

  27. ri

    I actually liked this performance I like that the vocals were live Rihanna stayed true to her style I think we sometimes want RiRi to be Beyonce vocally and shes not but thats part of her appeal as far as the performance I think this is most energy I ‘ve ever seen from her on stage plz note I have never been to a concert so maybe it’s different but I think she did a good job dont care for the blonde hair too much tho

    [Reply]

    KaramelKisses Reply:

    @ri, I don’t like the blonde hair either. It makes her look old & nearly washes her out. Personally, I don’t expect her to be Beyonce or to even be on that level. However I do find myself disappointed w/ Ri because an “artist” of her caliber should (how do i say this without upsetting her fans/stans? f*ck it) have her sh*t together. Every time she does a performance, she should emote the persona of someone that takes pride in & working on honing her craft. But I find her to be messy almost every time & this performance was no exception.

    Rihanna stans, may I please borrow your rose colored glasses? She was out of key from note 1 and remained so throughout the entire song. Please don’t use the choreography as an excuse either, there are other artists whose choreography is alot more complex but can still hold it together. AND before you start, I watched the performance for Coldplay (one of my faves) especially for “Paradise”. NEVER cosigned for the collab w/ Ri because she is not on their level but whatever.

    @KaramelKisses, exactly, she only sung in the beginning a d she was awful actually I know 3year olds who could sing better , later through out the performance the background sound was playing. I’m not stupid she diddnt fool me, however she was entertaining to watch

    KaramelKisses Reply:

    @Kelvin, LOL! Actually while she finished her portion of the “performance”, I went to the bathroom. My ears and my eyes could NOT take it!

    This entire show was excrutiatingly boring w/ the exception of Chris Brown, Adele (wish she had sung Set Fire, Rolling is overplayed at this point but still a great performance), Coldplay’s portion of this performance and Jason Aldene w/ Kelly Clarkson. I was disappointed in the “tribute” to Whitney … I know that the RA did what they could in the time alotted however there were enough artists present (Alicia, Fergie, GaGa, etc) on hand to do a suitable tribute for “the voice” Ms. Whitney Houston.

    No one expected her to do this good! I was blown away! good job Rihanna. Who knew she could sing & dance this well :)

    I think this was the performance Rihanna needed for more people to start taking her seriously as a vocalist. I’m not saying that the vocals on “We Found Love” and “Princess of China” were mind blowing amazing but this was one of her best performances. Her vocals were almost on point and the dancing was choreographed well. Hopefully we’ll see more of this Rihanna and better in through the years.

    Her voice is Wack …
    She doesn’t have many years signing and she sounds horrible.
    She is lucky she has good writers and Producers.

    Take Notes !!

    You really make it seem so easy together with your presentation however I find this matter to be really something that I think I’d never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely extensive for me. I’m looking forward for your subsequent put up, I’ll attempt to get the grasp of it!
