She doesn’t sound very good live.

# 2

she can pull off that bodysuit

Not a fan of this performance. For me it seemed the vocals were off and her stage presence was lacking. She looked very pretty though.

# 4

What is she wearing?

# 5

I don’t like any of her AMA oufits.
She needs a new stylist.

She has always been a good live performer.. but I think she is off her game right now and trying to re-find her confidence. Kind of embarrassing to go out and perform in front of a whole bunch of people who know the whole situation.. the psychological damage is hard to overcome. .. might take her awhile.. maybe another year of performing to be back to the old Rhianna.

Her hair is awful but at least she toned down the clown makeup.

Taylor Swift and Rihanna have their voices propped by the studio. They rely too much on their wardrobe, glamor and background tricks to distract the audience. stand still and sing LIVE

WTF?!?!? ***** is ripping off Freddie Mercury with the mic stand!!!! Don’t even bother trying, cause you are a no-talent and always will be! Nobody will be singing your praises 20 years from now, you’ll be a has-been!!! This is what you call a performance? A dead body shows more passion!!! Jay-Z, were smoking crack when you signed this trick? SHE HAS NO TALENT!!!!!

That looks like the p*rn version of a Where’s Waldo suit.

she’s totally naked…he’s not ashamed of herself dressing that way?

i’m so DONE with her…she sucks!

what the hell is that on her neck.. please dont tell me thats permanent.. holy sh*tt that tattoo loooks horrible.. its in the worst spot ever

I loved the stage and the lighting, hated the songs and performance. Rihanna cannot sing, and she prouved it at the AMAs.

Truth Is... @ 11/23/2009 at 3:16 pm

Agree, she’s off her game but imho, she’s never been a very good live performer. Her voice isn’t the best and her moves are weak. Sometimes she even forgets to dance.

Her strength is in videos where her marketing team can manipulate her voice to sound semi-decent and dress her up like a supermodel and parade her around half-naked.

A woman from future lol

People complain but there are only a handful of “singers” in the industry all of the rest try and get by on stage presence and props. I’m not a hater though because I like Rihanna.

She does look sort of pretty there. Whoever did her makeup did a nice job. Now if only they could do something with her hair.

I’m sorry but I thing she’s beginning to show that she’s really a flash in the pan.

she needs to concentrate on songwriting (or getting better songwriters), voice training and not rely on her outer appearances so much.

The performance was terrible. Her attitude was like yeah I’m back when in reality it was like wtf, are you serious with that?

Enough with the outfits. If she wants to be taken seriously again she better bring it music wise.
