Rihanna Makes It Rain on ‘X Factor’ U.K.

Rihanna

Grab an umbrella. Rihanna stormed the stage for a wet performance on “The X Factor” U.K. Dressed in a black gown, the pop princess performed her 12th No. 1 single “Diamonds” as rain poured down on her, leaving her soaking wet.

In addition to raining on stage, she also reigns at No. 1 on the U.K. charts with her seventh album Unapologetic. The project sold nearly 100,000 copies and ties Madonna for female artist with the most consecutive chart-topping albums in the U.K.

“#UNAPOLOGETIC has debuted at number 1 here in the UK!!! Thank you guys for owning shit this week!!” tweeted RiRi.

Unapologetic is also expected to debut at No. 1 in the U.S. this week.

    THAT'S HOW WE DO Reply:

    @WonderLand19, i’m not talking about it interms of vocals. i just mean her demeanor and way she is evoking such much emotions through what she’s singing which Whitney was know for when i comes to her performances along with her perfect vocals.

    She actually killed this performance. I was shocked to see her actually stay in tune and deliver a faultless performance full of passion.
    Congrats Rih.Your getting better at performing live,your album is really good (Best yet),your talking to God and it seems ur friendship with Christopher is back on track! Life is Good!

    Production wise this was an A+. Emotionally it was an A+. Vocally I felt it was a C. However her SNL performance of “Stay” was an all around A+. Go check that out on Youtube if you missed it. Good job Rhi!
