Hot Shots: Rihanna & Bruno Mars Rehearse For Grammy Duet

Published: Friday 8th Feb 2013 by David

Can you believe a year’s passed since Nicki Minaj, Adele and Rihanna dominated the 54th Annual Grammy Awards?

No? We can’t either, but it has- and two days before this year kicks off in LA, the latter has shared a snap from her rehearsal session, joined by Sting and Bruno Mars who she will perform with on the night.

Beginning 8pm on CBS, the show will also see the likes of Frank Ocean, Justin Timberlake and Miguel take to the stage, set to rub shoulders with Beyonce, Jay Z and Usher, all of which stand as confirmed attendees.

More below…



…and from 2004’s show:

    Poor Bruno. Having to share the stage with that untalented slutbag Rihanna. I hope he’s prepared to do all the real singing and performing while she walks back and forth looking stupid.

    Beyonce isn’t performing, she’s just presenting and receiving an award I think.

    She isn’t on the official performers list.

    Ya’ll h*** have report buttons now? TGJ aint that exclusive that people will miss it if they get “suspended” like ya’ll say.

    But this is the third year Rihanna is performing twice. Her, Bruno, and Sting are performing a tribute Bob Marley and then she will do stay! Why didn’t they ask Beyonce, who plans to just sit in the audience and watch? Rihanna’s “goat voice” and “stiff dancing” are clearly preferred by le Grammys.

    Beyoncé sets record in Belgium.
    She sold out 2 complete shows in less than an hour. The first show sold out in 10 minutes , then she added an extra show which sold out in 35 minutes.

    She sold over 33.000 tickets in less than hour , which has never happened before in Belgium.

    that c-error song was s***. thats why it got pulled. her career been over and i dont why la reid dont stop playin and just drop her ass. we all know ONE WOMAN FLOPPING prob wont see the light of day……….or if it does itll keep getting push back like BASICALLY EXTINCT.

    anyways……….rih just keep RISING! THAT REIGN WONT EVER LET UP! poor bey reduced to sitting on the sidelines WATCHING THE REAL KING perform! maybe they hire rita to clean the stage before rih performs on it!

    bey too scared to release her single cuz she know its a FLOP! she just tyring to hold off on the FLOPAGE! she know she cant compete with rih on the hot 100 or even the R&B chart now that DIAMONDS has slayed that chart as well as the hot 100!

    scalpers prob bought up the bulk of those tix or her management or whoever did so she can give em away FOR FREE as a “gift” for “less fortunate” fans or some s***. dont be fooled by “sold out”……..there gon be A LOT OF EMPTY SEATS where she goin!

    Omg that Beyoncé grammys performance gave me chills. I don’t stan for her but Rihanna could never come close talent wise. She cant even perform by herself, the Grammys and her people don’t trust her enough. Her performing by herself everywhere and being no more than average is done played out already.

    y’all can take the truth, Rihanna SUCKS LIVE get over it …..SHE ISN’T GONE TO SLAY NOTHING AND Y’ALL KNOW IT.

    I cant @ The Navy stooping low and saying Beyoncé bought her tickets. Shame they have to resort to a fantasy in their heads to make them feel better. They cant take it! We shall see when everywhere is filled out, Im going when she comes to London, never seen her before, but everyone I know that’s seen her has nothing but praise! I would pay money to see Beyoncé even though Im not her biggest fan, but she always puts in 200% effort on stage. Unlike the other complacent forehead.

    I will keep it 100% honesty , i know i probably won’t be watching as long there’s no ADELE performance. 🙄

    but I really know I will Love Sting , Bruno , Justin Timberlake and their performances , however , from now and on , i will watch everything after the whole over-hype and craziness die out so i can decide accurately who did great and who disappointed.

    and i hope no Rituals take place too. 😉

    Love you all 😀

    Beyonce is one hot ticket: Miami stop expected to sell out quickly

    Not sick of Beyonce yet? No one else is either. Even though the singer has created controversy left and right — between the lip synching at the inauguration and the tight leather outfit slammed by PETA at the Super Bowl — she is still one hot ticket. Literally.

    Consumer rights organizations The Florida Consumer Action Network and the Fan Freedom Project released a statement Friday warning fans to expect a fast sellout for the Halo crooner’s July 10 concert at AmericanAirlines Arena because only a small percentage of the 19,600 seats will likely be made available. Many tickets will be set aside for fan club and premium credit card pre-sales and VIPs, they said.

    “Fans must be watchful of the significant ticket holdbacks that often occur with popular events,” said Bill Newton, executive director of FCAN.

    Set your alarm: Tickets for the Mrs Carter World Tour officially go on sale 10 a.m. Monday, although discount ticket broker sites like StubHub, GoodSeatTickets and Ticket Liquidator had a few seats that cost about $80 a pop as of midday Friday.

    Rihanna’s Diarrhea tour isn’t even sold out here 😆

    Question: When will R****** perform on Grammy by herself? Everytime she hits the main stage, she has someone more talented next to her. Every f****** time. She’s so pathetic and basic.

    2008 – R****** & The Time
    2010 – R****** & Drake / R****** & Eminem
    2011 – R****** & Coldplay
    2012 – R****** & Bruno Mars & Sting

    PATHETIC!!! They know that she sucks. They know that R****** can’t deliver a good performance by herself. She’s popular enough to be on the show, but not good enough to perform alone. They think she can bring them good ratings. LOL. Poor souls! Don’t they know that R******’s performance on VMA ’12 was one of the least seen in VMA’s history and ‘Styled to Flop’ was axed due the lack of ratings. LOL. I can’t.
    They want fans to tune in the show, but they don’t want to lose their credibility letting untalented people like R****** do crap on the stage, so they call someone who’s more talented than R****** (which is very easy to find), so they can balance out the crap.

    Poor Bruno. Poor Sting. Good luck, guys, you’ll need it.
