    The duet wasn’t as bad as the Web portrays it to be. That aside, the solo definitely sounds better.

    I was skeptical, but I really enjoyed the performance. Go Rih Rih and Jennifer!

  • Rose

    I prefer Rihanna on her own when she sings this song. I love this song, and no-one can sing it as perfectly as Rihanna. Didnt like the country side to it.

  • rool

  • amensister

    regarding her hair, em you all know
    SHE WEAR WIGS ONLY!!!!, come to think of it does anyone have or seen RiRi with her own natural hair, its been so long.

    girl has put on weight

  • treme

    She sounds terrible live.

  • elfin

    The short hair is a definite improvement but makes her look older.

  • Wow!

    SideShow Bob cut his hair!

  • hello

    @amensister: I saw a picture of her without her wigs. It was sad. She was almost bald and had maybe three strands of real hair on top of her head.

  • mickey

    I love the shorter hair.. she looks much much better. Hope she keeps it this way for a while..

  • Wilson

    @amensister: She suffers from early, onset female pattern baldness.

  • Wilson

    She should speak out about it. She could help a lot of women.

  • ann

    NAY!

  • London

    LMAOOO…but no really what was she doing there? Is the R&B community finally getting tired of her no talent tired ass! I mean c’mon how long did she think she could distract people with her bad hairstyles in order to take the heat from the fact that she cant sing??

    and on the perfomance…shameless for allowing another artist outshine you on your own song (guess who is not winning lol)

    Loved Jennifer when she came in after the 1st verse…AMAZINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG TALENT!!

  • Zack

    I’m ok with Rihanna performing at the ACMs. She did a great job, she has a great voice and the styling of the song fits the COUNTRY feel.

    Personally. I think Jennifer Nettles sounds like a dying cat. Her voice is atrocious.

  • Yepp

    SHe’s too young for this short of hair.

  • Laura

    Rihanna CANT SING…FACT

  • toni

    YAY!!! MY BABE RIHANNA

  • Mchammer

    She looks fat and her nose is still big even with all the surgery.Shes wak ugly and overated….Next

  • ryannnn

    rihanna sounded better than jennifer.
    jennifer was off-key, and rihanna’s tone is more interesting/husky.

    i don’t get why people think rihanna can’t sing.

    also, rihanna isn’t bald without wigs. if you watch her LOUD documentary (which came with the couture edition) you see her without wigs/extensions, and her hair looks perfectly fine.

    riri and jennifer did great, it was a good thing for jennifer to invite ri to the awards show. the people was enjoying themselves with a standing ovation and all of the applauds.

  • The Psychologist

    there will always be haters!!! People take time every post to just spew hatred . It’s a sad thing when their day is not complete without being “Net Bullies”. They get a kick out of it, they probably get off on it too. In reality these people seem to be weak cowardly people who hide behind their computer to be brave and aggressive when in reality they are weak cowardly and can’t stand up for themselves. They are also not very happy with their physical appearance so they rip other people’s looks to shreds. They too were probably physically bullied even at school. Envy and hatred had taken over. They have my sympathy. God knows they need it.

  • boom

    god thanks, no more ugly curly red hair

  • http://WWW. heartsupreme

    Wow this short hair & shade really doesn’t suit her….kinda makes her look older!

    But I LOVE this song! Cold Case Love & Man Down are soo good too.

  • testington

    Rhiana can’t sing worth a damn without autotune

  • Nicky

    How do you allow someone to sing your own song better than you? She was struggling through her own song. Her voice on the album sounds great, I guess it’s all the sound equipment they use. However, she sounds terrible live. Jennifer Nettles has a terrific voice.

  • Anna

    I can sing like that two and millions of other people…why is she famous and has all these money…sigh….

  • Anna

    I can sing like RIhanna too and so do millions of other people. why is she famous and has all this money..sigh..

  • http://@dwayne420 Dwayne

    Thought they both did a great job…different styles of voices and each version of the song stands on its own.

  • wtf

    That woman with Rihanna can not sing at all. My ears are f***ing bleeding.

  • at least she is decently dressed here.

  • Camille

    I hate Rihanna’s whole look here and Jennifer drowned her out. It was like it was Jennifer’s song.

  • yo

    nay

  • Jant

    I’m sorry both looked nice but it just didnt come together

  • http://@yahoo.com backspace

    in the final anaylsis its okay for jennifer to OUT SING RIRI,many loosers would complain if they was getting HANGED WITH A NEW ROPE.

  • http://@yahoo.com backspace

    for many who say rihanna can not sing, checkout the billboards artist of the decade,,, check out the all time global charts and the apple itune charts and the stats and numbers shows that theres a dead cat on the line because numbers don’t lie, people do.
