Rihanna Performs On GMTV

Published: Friday 26th Feb 2010 by Trent

Rihanna is blazing her way along the promotional trail. This time the Bajan performed her new song, ‘Rude Boy‘, on the UK’s GMTV. The song has thus far peaked at #6 on the UK Singles Chart and #23 on the US Billboard Hot 100.

It’s safe to say that this was one of the better performances of that song date. Rihanna is slowly coming into her own as a performer and, as usual, her fashion game was on point. Her team has made solid decisions thus far with this album’s singles selections, unlike Rihanna’s idol and label mate, Mariah Carey. Timing is everything and ‘Rude Boy’ came out at the perfect moment.

Thoughts?

    OMG…That was horrible. lol…All I can say +vely is that she looked like she was having fun. But damn…that voice (live voice)…I love the track…operative word: TRACK.

  12. newsflash haters February 26, 2010

    There is nothing wrong with rihanna’s live voice. It sounds a heck of alot better than many in the business, and she sounds the same on her record. That is one thing you can’t take away from her. She looked stunning as well. True eye candy.

  13. Stoney-Brie February 26, 2010

    SO THIS IS WHEN SHE EXPLAINS HOW COMPUTER CAN MAKE U SOUND LIKE UR DREAM VOICE…WHO SHE TRYIN 2 FOOL????

    THIS B**** GETS HER DIRTY WORK DONE ON THE STUPID COMPUTER,

    JAY-Z AND THE WHOLE TEAM BASICALLY GET TOGETHER 2 DISCUSS HOW THE MACHINE’S PERFORMING!!

    WHILE THE REAL THING TORTURES IT’S SELF IN ATEMPTS TO SOUND LIKE THE FAKE SH!T!

    IM WATCHING 😉

  14. ‘Ello February 26, 2010

    I wasn’t feeling this performance. She sounded better on the Aol sessions.

    @Nicky Rihanna can’t dance, she can’t. No she didn’t prove that she could dance in the rude boy video she proved she COULDN’T.

    Anyway Rihanna I can tell your getting better. Just learn some REAL moves and you will rock any performance. Look at Ciara, she can’t sing for sh*t yet she is a good dancer. That is why she has good performances.

  15. NICKY February 26, 2010

    NOOOOO I LEARN TO DANCE FROM RIHANNAS VIDEOS, SHES A GREAT DANCER, I WAKE UP EVERY MORNING FEELING LIKE RIHANNA, BAJAN PRINCESS MAKES ME LOVE MYSELF MORE BY SINGING WONDERFUL LEGENDERY MUSIC, RIHANNAS THE HOTTEST B**** IN HEELS, THAT RIHANNA REIGN WONT LET UP, AND HER NEXT ALBUM WILL GO TO NUMBER 1! #TEAMRIHANNA. WHY DO YOU HATE RIHANNA SO MUCH SHES SO FREAKIN AWESOME, MY GOD I LOVE HER SOOO MUCH. WITH HER NEXT ALBUM SHE’LL GO 3XPLATINUM, EVERY ERA SHE SETS THE BAR SO HIGH.

  16. Aunt Jackie February 26, 2010

    Why do they keep posting her performances if they hate her singing/dancing so much? I swear this is some crazy reverse psychological marketing on this blog, lol.

    As for my opinion of the performance, I liked the one on Ellen the best…I didn’t really care for this one. Her vocals sounded off key and her dancing was like it usually is. Super-stiff! She was so much more fluid on Ellen! Comparatively speaking.

  17. Nicky22 February 26, 2010

    LOL…THESE DELUSIONAL RIHANNA FANS ARE SOMETHING ELSE…LOL…ESPECIALLY THIS NICKY PERSON LOL

  20. ‘Ello February 26, 2010

    @Nicky I don’t hate Rihanna, in fact I actually just bought Rated R yesterday and I enjoyed it. But Rihanna can’t dance. If she can dance why doesn’t she ever dance when she performs. All she does is shake her hips and waive her hands.

  21. newsflash haters February 26, 2010

    @ello great decision on buying the album, you won’t be disappointed. Great album indeed.

  22. fried ri February 26, 2010

    Dryer than a nuns c***. Flat and stiff

  23. Ben February 26, 2010

    Lets just say I’ve seen better renditions of this song. I actually rather watch the video than this.

  24. Tess February 26, 2010

    I would like for her to never dance ever again! Then this broad had the audacity to go on a talk show and TRY to teach someone else to dance?! Ha! Girl, put time in the dance studio and learn to dance before offering ‘techniques’ to someone else. smh

  25. Parisian girl February 26, 2010

    Not my favorite performance
    aol session was better…

  26. g3 February 26, 2010

  27. hihihihi February 27, 2010

    RIHANNA IS REAL TALENT

    ARE U MAD YES SUR EU R

    THE VOCALS WERENT HER BEST THIS TIME BUT THE PERFORMANCE WAS GOOD AND WHEN SHE USED THE MIC AS A D***

    GO GIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIRL

  28. 12345 February 27, 2010

    Every single day a Rihanna post ahah.
    She never really danced, why would she start dancing now? She didnt sound bad and it wasnt her best performance, she was good, it is sad to see some artists getting props for dancing while making playback then some get mocked just because they dont dance but they sing live, while they are known for singing and they make millions because of their songs, not their dance moves, oh well, Rihanna could save the world but she always will be hated.
    Every day there is a Rihanna post and people that comment always say the same thing, why are you here discussing? This wont lead you anywhere, it makes you dumb tho, for the stans and for the haters rofl

  29. Aunt Jackie February 27, 2010

    Womp Womp, I just listened to Cold Case Love for the first time.

    1st of all, that song is epic and it needs to be her next single. I don’t want to ever see it performed live because she can’t sing and it will kill it for me.

    Just Timberlake sure knows how to write a song!! That ish is great!

  30. Jermaine February 27, 2010

    RIHANNA DANCES BETTER THEN BEYONCE,LADY GAGA, AND THE REST OF THEM H***. RIHANNA IS BEAUTIFUL, AND HER MOVES ARE FAR FROM STIFF. SHE IS JUST EFFORTLESS.

    AND IF U HATE ON HER SO MUCH.. WHY KEEP WATCHING HER S***??? YA’LL DUMB AS ROCKS. RIHANNA’S LAUGH’N ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK.

  31. cool chick February 27, 2010

    i LOVE rude boy but she SUCKS performing live

  32. X,Y,”and Z” February 27, 2010

    @Trent – If, in the near-future, you should find a bill for a flat-panel monitor/flat panel TV, presented to you; know-then, that brutalization of the “original article” is ‘on-YOUR- SHOULDERS-to-find-placed-blame’: If y’all didn’t put this “screaming banshee” up-in-here to torture us, we ain’t never had fuss/cuss-at, “fling-fist-at” nor “hurl inanimate-object-at” said household-item that NOW-lies in total disrepair!

    …I’m telling y’all by-hook-or-by-crook, Def Jam is gonna ‘FORCE-US’ to like Rihanna; Def Jam is gonna make-up-our-minds; yes they will! …We’re just too dumb to have ANY concept of talent nor any ‘inkling-or-pang-of-initiative’, as sound-judgment is a privilege that we’ve said not-yet earned or lies just beyond our – outstretched – reach!

    “Grind-ON, Rihanna!” …You’ve got to know, by-now, “the-end-draws-near”. You ‘no-longer suffer-the-illusion’ that “you’re worthy” or “are-so-chosen” to carry-the-mantle of the “IT-GIRL!” “The gig is up”, next stop – a reality TV show for one Robyn Rihanna Fenty!

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT!

    Xyz really scares me
    I loved this performance..rih had fin I love her!!
    Go rih go!! (via sugar) lol

  34. Yo Angie February 27, 2010

    Unoriginal and boring—T-Boz wore that hairstyle 18 years ago.

  35. X,Y,”and Z” February 28, 2010

    @Raychel — I know JUST how you feel: one-look at HER H***** sore (on her top lip) – was all it took to ‘scare-me silly’!! …A righteous, pious, humble and deeply-introspective life – I NOW lead!
    …Poor Matt Kemp; poor, poor Matt Kemp – that man is just gonna have to learn the hard way, now isn’t he?
    …Rihanna is Toxic; what ’bout that is HE NOT understanding? …And ‘our-Matty’ had such a promising future….if ONLY HE had listened..

    X,Y “and Z” — OUT!

  37. DMAC February 28, 2010

    Definitely one of her better vocal deliveries. The dancing was still a little on the stiff side but hey….I’d take better vocals for now at least.

    I find that while the sound is a bit dated, it works for her. Reminds me of some 90’s Caribbean-esque music more like some of her earlier songs which seem to work better for her. Even some of her earlier performances that used more Caribbean-influenced dances she did a lot better….maybe she’s heading toward a revisit to what was working at the start of her career….idk

  38. X,Y,”and Z” February 28, 2010

    @DMAC — NOPE! …Too late, ‘that-ship-done-sailed,’ Rihanna is THE QUINTESSENTIAL “GOOD-GIRL-GONE-BAD” – and forever she-shall-remain! There WAS hope for her BEFORE that 20/20 interview; but ALAS, the-clouds-part to reveal the “nuclear-fallout” from her going-ballistic and “nuking CBreezy”!

    ….Rihanna made-HER-bed; let the chips NOW-fall – where they may! Let it NOW be revealed: her-lies, subterfuge, usury and wanton-misuse of Domestic Abuse/Violence as ruse: to ‘gain-sympathy’ – but ONLY – to sell her CD!

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT!!

    As always she looked beautiful, but she sounded a mess. I tired of typing down the obvious. She beautiful. There’s no denying that, but she’s a “MUSICIAN”. She should be singing. I’m waiting on the day where I can say “Damn, that performance was great”!, or “Man, she sounded amazing”!. But if she keeps singing like this, that won’t happen anytime soon…

  40. Kez April 2, 2010

    I like her as a person, but I don’t think she’s a very good dancer, but who cares? As long as she can sing. But non the less I admire her for bouncing back after what Chris Brown did to her, strong woman. I know from personal experience it’s not easy to come back, and even more so with her being so famous.

    I really don’t care if she can dance or not or sing or not, she’s a nice person and should be judged on who she is as a person rather than being cussed for how she sings and dances.

    I’m more of a Beyonce fan tbh. Another strong woman.
