Rihanna might not be a vocalist like Whitney Houston, but can definitely bring it when the situation requires it. The pop star, who has often been criticized for being more of a performer than a real singer, literally killed it on last night’s X Factor UK.Check out the video above to see her spectacular performance in full.
The leading single off Rihanna’s new album, “Unapologetic,” in stores now, is called “Diamonds.” Though this wasn’t the first time she performed it live, it was definitely one of the most memorable.
Not only did RiRi make it rain on stage and got soaking wet by the end of the song, but she also proved all those naysayers that she too can put on jaw-dropping live performances.
Of course, you don’t have to take my word for it. Having seen some of Rihanna’s worst live performances, I can honestly say the one above is truly in a league of its own.
