Must-See: Misha B Performs Rihanna’s ‘Diamonds’ On The Splash!

Published: Thursday 18th Oct 2012 by Sam

Easily one of the industry’s most exciting prospects, X Factor star Misha B shows no signs of slowing in her steady rise to the top.

The Manchester bred songstress is gearing up for the release of her new single ‘Do You Think Of Me’, which serves as the follow-up to her debut effort  ‘Home Run’ which was all sorts of a Summer smash.

Due out on November 4th via Relentless/Sony Music, ‘Do You’ has been praised for its unique “stadium soul” sound, which the 20 year old brought to That Grape Juice’s ‘The Splash’ this week.

In the weeks leading up to the track’s release, we’ll be sharing one new performance from Misha’s rousing set. The first? A spine-tingling take on Rihanna‘s latest hit ‘Diamonds’.

Watch Misha shine bright on ‘The Splash’ above!

    S*** The guy playing the guitar is so f****** hot. Him and Casper, my day would be complete.

  5. RiQky October 18, 2012

    Im sorry, Im no talent-basher, but i missed the “spine-tingle” in this performance. sounded very much like a simple, lifeless talentshow performance. I would perfer the bajan-esque texture of the original. Thanx!

And no amount of your name calling and nasety ass vile comments is going to stop or slow Rihanna down from her part that she is “Playing To The Hilts In The Game”, Bastards, Suckers, ass holes, naysayers, and Doubters,,,,

    In the mean time, Diamonds jumps from 18 to 11 on the BB hot 100…and also serves as Rihanna’s fastest rising single of her career.

      HI LAX,

      I saw your lovely, warm message. I am glad you enjoy reading my post, I enjoy reading your FACTUAL POST too! You and I evoke fear in these m************, cos we speak the truth.

      In terms of our girl, Rih, she is now outselling Adele in the USA AND THE UK. Adele may be a Alanis morissette – a One breakout wonder.

      • Lax October 20, 2012

        @Rihanna Black Madonna….
        Thanks very much “RBM” because u r so right on, people (Mofo’s) Hates the truth and they would not give Rih Credit if she was crapping gold bricks and they was getting One of them. They talk about how often She drops albums, but yet there’s proof that Her 6-albums do not Out number the 4-albums Bey has dropped and mixed for a total of 9-albums to Rih’s total of 8-albums with remixes and things like that .

        They says that Beyonce has did this and did that and yet If Rihanna drops a album they goes Nutts…. When in Reality Beyonce’s Solo Career started in 2003 and from then to persent day Beyonce has dropped 4 albums and
        Remix, deluxed, Night at the Winn, Rose room, Tour album for a Total of 9 albums and the proof is in the writing on the wall….
        And I keep repeating My self But Rih has dropped 6-albums for a total of 8 and if i am wrong I will Recant that…

        On the list of Best Selling Artist You see “Lil Ms Sunshine”
        Shinning bright with 80million Albums
        Beyonce with 75 million Albums
        And Destiny Childs with 50million Albums
        Which is great but then when these loose booty Bytches see Rihanna and Her total sales they say Its because She have DROPPPPED more Albums when In Reality Beyonce has still dropped more albums for her REMIXES
        drops,,,, And Rihanna started Her Career in n 2005
        and since Beyonce Solo Career was Two years before Rihanna’s first drop Speaks to the Kind of a Mega Star Jayz Helped Rihanna to Be and If the Bey Hive is mad then they need to take the Phucking Spite out on Jayz’s Black Ass Not Rihanna’s But I love how Jelous and envious The Bey Hive Stays with Rihanna’s Mega Super Star TIGHT, S*** ASS..

    Its not about who has the best voice anymore… its about the best sound

    doesn’t hurt to b hot as f*** either

    • Rihanna black madonna October 18, 2012

      And that is why LA reid signed her. She takes songs and makes it her own. This why she ended Beyonce’s career and stopped Rita bland vocals Ora dead in her tracks.

  10. King yolk October 18, 2012

    I realized this a long time ago people some people may have bigger voices but nobody can sing a rhianna song better then rhianna.if rhianna wasn’t the singer on diamonds it would not even make the charts

    • Rihanna black madonna October 18, 2012

      THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. This is why she had made it and so called Singers like Rita Ora are flops. SHE HAS A ONE OF A KIND UNIQUE TONE TO HER VOICE. M************ say she cannot sing – SHE CAN! Cassie, Christina Millian, spice girls, cheryl cole, one direction are all examples of folks who cannot SING.

      I can imitate Rih’s singing style which is mostly her bajan accent. SHE CAN SING. She takes songs and makes it her own.

      That fat, blueberry colored girl sounds wack singng Diamonds and never ever ever would make it , if she was given the song.

      Unless you can sing like Whitney, mariah and Celine – shut the f*** up. Rihanna is the best singer, because she is one – of – a kind.

      • whyohwhy October 18, 2012

        She sings off key, no pitch, the tune and that hollaring she does is not unique for some one who is suppose to have talent. What this woman with talent just did was show Rihanna how to sing her song live (God for bid). Unique, now I know y’all done gone crarzy, Rihanna UNIQUE way too funny. I do agree with the one of a kind but not like you…

      doing and It’s very Clear To Me

  13. Auntie_Jackie October 18, 2012

    That was an amazing cover. Diamonds is very simple, almost in a silly way, but it is ripe for a beautiful, emotional performance like that. As with most Rihanna songs, the studio version is nice, but when you hear a strong vocalist cover it, it gets blown to bits.

    To try to go in on her skin color and her being a little chubby means that you accept the fact that rihanna won’t be able to do it a fraction as good as this chick. I’d love to see you all lovely faces. I’m sure if I did I’d die of freight.

    @BHive, Haters, Lames and Loosers,,,,Don’t get Me wrong If
    You will notice I try Very Hard to not find Myself saying that Rihanna
    is good, better or best but what I do say all of the time off and on is this,,,
    Rihanna Deserves a Chance to be Good in Her Career just like all of the Other Artist that is out there Working their Asses off. Its just that the differences comes up when
    Many of Her Haters don’t want to Give Her a Chance to do good, They are always saying She Can’t, Want, She is not as Good as Beyonce is and Bey was further ahead when She was Rihannas Age…. Well that might be But Beyonce started in 2003 and Rihanna came two years later and if Beyonce came out 9 years ago that would Make Beyonce be 22 years of age and at 22 years old , BEYONCE DID
    NOT Have as many Accomplishments and His-to-Rih as much as Rihanna has
    If that be the case All one would have to do is take the age and look at the Cnharts and Beyonce’s Impact on them and theres nothing to say that Beyonce was near as Popular and had sold as much as Rihanna has now sold, no way hosea…If Bey started in 2003 which She would have been 22 and 2004 Bey 23 years of age and 2005 beyonce would have been 24 years Young…. and for the years of 2003-2004-2005 is well Documented and there for all to see, read and share and as you all know Thje Truth Will Set Yo Asses Free….
    Now look up Beyonce’s Achievenments for 2003, 2004 and 2005 the year Lil Ms Sunshine Came on the Scenes,,,,, I mean Rihanna is far from being the Best artist But Rih Isn’t at the top and She dam sure isn’t at the bottom All I can say to
    Rihanna’s Many HATERS IS THIS,,,,,,Jay Picked Her And all I got say about that is
    Blame Beyonce’s Honey for Picking/pulling that “Ace”…

    Jay is One of the Lucliest men Ever He Married One Of the Hottest Chicks in the game and then He has Trained, Taught, and Guided The SUCCESSFUL CAREERS OF ONE OF THE BIGGEST MEGA INTERNATIONA ARTIST, EVER,,,,,,

    Beyonce in Action and Rihanna keep right on Being INSPIRED by Bey….
