Rihanna is performing at The Grammy Nominations Concert. Tune in to CBS on Wednesday (November 30) at 10 PM ET to watch RiRi bring down the house performing her smash-hit “We Found Love”. Be sure to check local listings.
TIME Magazine posted a list of “best and worst of the 2011 Grammy Awards”. Rihanna’s performances got the highest mark “A” naming one of the best performances of the night. Here’s what they said:
“Love The Way You Lie (Part II)”
Rihanna rarely sings alone. She’s almost always accompanied by another singer, drowned out by synthesizers or Auto-Tuned by an overzealous producer. But tonight, at least briefly, it’s just Rihanna and the microphone. Then Eminem appears and does the unthinkable: he makes the performance even better. When the duo performed “Love the Way You Lie” at the MTV Video Music Awards earlier this year, they seemed disjointed and unrehearsed. Here, they’ve have found their element. And Dr. Dre, whose cameo could have been an unnecessary addition, only added to the fire.
“What’s My Name” feat. Drake
It’s official: the 2011 Grammys should just be renamed The Rihanna Show. For her second appearance onstage tonight, the pop star ditched the ball gown, shortened her skirt and nailed this duet with Drake. I’m not even sure why Drake was there. Apparently he wan’t either; he wandered off halfway through the song.
It’s time for HQ pictures from 2011 Grammy Awards which took place yesterday. Read below the full coverage from the ceremony! Pictures will be added all day long so make sure to follow our Twitter to not miss anything new!
