Rihanna: 'SNL' Performances - Watch Now!

Rihanna poses in one of the bumper images for her appearance on Saturday Night Live on Saturday (May 5).

The 24-year-old singer performed twice during the show. Her first performance started out with “Birthday Cake” before she segued into “Talk That Talk”. Later in the show, RiRi performed her new hit, “Where Have You Been”.

Unfortunately, Rihanna did not act in a sketch during the episode as she had done the first two times she appeared on the show.

    Nothing more than a karaoke queen. If it wasn’t for electronics to help her sing she would be asking me if I want fries with my burger…. Don’t like the truth… tuff Shite.

    She is a beautiful girl. But let’s get to the singing.
    Ok, the first song was dumb and trashy, but her second song was way better! I wish her singing was less nasally and screaming at times. Other than that she did a little better than I expected.

    Ghost that was truth and her stans cant seem to understand. She puts it out there in their face and they still say she can sing. The second performance was laced with backtracking and that made it good and we are still saying good with Rihanna after all this time. Technology has put shame on the music business. This is why she should never receive an award and the ones she have should be taken from her due to the fact she is autotune, backtracking laced artist if artist is the right word. Stop giving her awards for her IMAGE and a cult (Rihanna Navy) that buys her stuff that makes her seem more than she is. Rihanna it’s time for you to go and apply for that job at some strip club I dont believe she can handle a burger joint… Pathetic that’s what her SNL show was..

    Omg she’s awful! Such a try-hard when it comes to being sexual. Leave it be Rihanna, you’re embarrassing yourself!

    stupidhoesheis Says:

    Oh yeah! there was nothing amazing about the second song, she had to strain (see her face) when dancing to remember the steps. Not AMAZING anywhere when Rihanna performs..

    lols Says:


    do you really think she needs to apply for any job after all the money she made already. you are delusional lol. and she did very good, it’s not an easy stage to sing and dance there, so small and bad acoustic.

    Hunter Says:

    it was painful to watch… she has no voice what so ever. kinda sad that nowadays, all you need to do is touch your crouch non stop and tweet yourself half naked pics to be famous. I have 0 respect for her. I have checked couple of her interviews and she is just dumb! sad but truth. just lucky was at the right place on right time and producers actually made something out of her. otherwise, she would still be in barbados
