    I could barely hear anything!!! I love Bon Jovi and Jon Bon Jovi is HOT!!! Rihanna’s resume is growing! For someone with just 5 years in the biz, she has performed alongside music’s greats! Go Riri!!! Love her!!!:-*



    Rihanna WILL BE legendary as well…Shes Performed with Bono, Elton John, and Boni Jovi?!?! EPIC!!

    Plus i enjoyed that performance! Her Voice and energy fits it perfectly ..Go Princess Rih Rih Cant Wait for LOUD

  • CiaraMedlies

    Ciara would have done a better job, Rihanna’s stage presence is so tragic

  • Rob

    @ciaramedlies STFU, Bon Jovi doesn’t even know who CI-ERROR is. And for someone with such “tragic stage presence” she sure as hell pulls 50X the number of concertgoers CI-ERROR could.

    I loved her energy during the performance, great chemistry


    @CiaraMedlies: You HAVE to be kidding me?! who even knows who she is?! Rihanna is a versatile artist..ciara isnt. Bon Jovi and other musicians of that sort and there fans dont seemingly find Ciara entertaining

  • Bajan

    You can barely make out what she’s singing.

  • ITA

    @CiaraMedlies: Agree, anyone really.

  • Allie

    I used to like this song…


    @ITA: HATER….Take a Seat.

  • ITA

    Loud is a good title. She’s Loud but doesn’t say much.
    She’s just Loud.

  • LOL

    @DION-ISH: Sit your ass down, STAN.

  • Trinity

    That was a whole bunch of noise and not a lot of singing.


    People are TEW extreme when it comes to pop artist like Rihanna, Gaga, and Katy. There all fantastic in there own way and bring something different to the table….Its not that serious. Rihanna did a lovely job, and people who say otherwise are obviously (no secret at this point) haters who search rih post undercover just to do that..Hate.

  • yuck

    Rihanna’s a shitty singer.

  • Jordy

    This just ruined my life. Such an amazing rock band ruined by some poser pop wannabe. This is a travesty.

  • dezzie

    It’s no secret that Rihanna’s a terrible live singer. That’ why she relies on sex appeal. She could barely get the lyrics out so she started being coy and shaking her ass.

    Bon Jovi didn’t seem to mind. They probably hooked up later.


    @Jordy: How is she a Poser Pop Wannabe?! Im mean she is a Pop Singer? it wouldve made more since if you said poser rockstar or something?? sorta confused by ur comment! And um how is the band ruined?? you totally make no since. and if it ruined your life then wow you must not have one while rihanna’s include performing with a legendary band …stay mad.


    @dezzie: ROFL…That was Lame, try again. She sings better than half the pop stars of today for sure!

  • gossip girl

    The bitch butchered Livin’ On A Prayer

  • celeb spotter

    @DION-ISH: No, she doesn’t. You’re a delusional fanatic. The girl has a weak voice and can’t compare to most of today’s singers. Her and Taylor Swift both need to retire.

  • american_idiot22

    THAT WAS AWESOME…..Rihanna is AMAZING! One of the BEST of today

  • G


  • tal

    stunning RIRI !@!!!!!

  • crack is wack

    Anyone who thinks she sounds good there must be on crack.


    @celeb spotter: Um She sings better than MOST of her contemparys or right about the same. Shes no Mariah but the girl has vocal talent….This isnt a 1960s soul pub, this is pop…and she does just fine!


    WOW…Who else can say they’ve sung with Elton John, Bono, and Bon Jovi?!?!

    Say what you want but a comment on a blog isnt going to matter years from now nor makes an effect like THAT!

    Plus she didnt do bad at all, that was HOT! never been a fan of hers like that but WEH she did pretty good!

  • zoz

    I was happy for her. GOOD JOB RIRI!!!

  • AmyFlourist

    Hmmm i wasnt to sure what to expect but She Rocked IT!

    Kinda jealous shes that close to Jovi tho LOL

  • treme

    @dezzie: Probably. lol. They were people in the audience who could have sung it better.

  • Hewmen

    I actually enjoyed the belt she did on the breakdown ….got me hyped GO RIHANNA!!

    and the little jig she did was to cute. lol

  • LovelyMisie

    That was Great! they had good chemistry! Should do a song together..Screw Katy Perry lol

  • jams

    She sounds really bad

  • LTWYL2

    i LIVE For her OMG cant wait for loud

    THAT Was a Incredible! such a shocker…

  • Danielle


  • urmuseshockwave

    @jams: she didnt sound bad at all actually…plus its a Rock performance dude! has nothing to do with perfect vocal work like maybe a ballad….you just rock out!

  • jazzi

    Wow pretty amazing for her!

  • HearyCherylCole

    Ohh i enjoyed it! she seemed to be having a lot of fun and in the moment! i hope she changes up the dark and rock sound she did on Rated R tho on loud because i prefer Dance/Pop Rihanna.

  • katrina

    Awful video. Can’t really tell if she was good or not.

  • Cisco

    @crack is wack: It’s just a stan who keeps changing names. That’s why all the comments sound the same.

    This was pretty bad. Even Bon Jovi doesn’t sound too good. The volume is an issue but Rihanna isn’t suited for this song — she has a very limited range. She’s more pop than rock too.

  • TJZ

    she basically Killed it, in a good way! Wish i was there…looked HAWT!

  • TJZ

    who gave me a thumbs down?!

    for what? my opinion…someone hates Rihanna that much? wow no life.

  • Gagaloxxx

    wow congrats Rihanna, that had to be EPIC for her!

  • OhMahGawh

    Rihanna is terrible live.

  • julie

    Wow, JBJ is looking at her like he’s gonna lick her. OMG so disturbing.

  • mln

    o lets face it, any fan of JBJ would love to get up on stage and sing along with them. so why is rihanna any different? let her enjoy it. clearly they didn’t call her up there to sing something legit

  • LA

    @TJZ: Them not agreeing with your opinion does not mean they hate Rihanna. You stans are way too dramatic.

  • LA

    @TJZ: She definitely killed it. Slaughtered a good song.

  • lala

    What i didnt like about her performance was,that shes obviously not a team player…she could have faced him a little but more and actually sing a duet with him instead of trying to outscream him.

  • yo sista

    Oh God she can’t sing to save her life!
