Rihanna Performs On ‘GMA’

Published: Wednesday 17th Nov 2010 by Trent

The promotional machine known as Rihanna touched down on ‘Good Morning America’ today. The Pop star performed the songs ‘Only Girl (In The World)’ and ‘What’s My Name?’ from her new album, ‘Loud’, which hit stores yesterday. All the action is available below via Neon Limelight:

‘Only Girl (In The World)’

‘What’s My Name?’

Rihanna needs to give her backup singers a raise because they sing the lyrics louder then she does every time she hits the stage. That said, Rihanna is finally coming into her own as a live performer. Little by little she is learning how to work the stage (minus the fact that her eyes are closed most of the time). All she needs to do now is hire a good vocal coach.

Thoughts?

  4. Krishana November 17, 2010

    That hair color is too much for me.
    This girl has been in the biz for 5 years. Basically working non-stop. She should be RIPPING the stage by now. Instead of worrying about her image, she needs a stage coach like Beyonce had back in the day!!!! BTW: I copped her album off of iTunes. Not bad!!!

  5. truthfully November 17, 2010

  10. BLACK November 17, 2010

    @NICKY…..HERE WE GO..ANOTHER 500 POST ABOUT NOTHING HUH….

  11. UMMM……….. November 17, 2010

    Yeah right “YOO HOO”! This B*TCH’s voice gets worse with every damn performance!

    And where are her clothes? What is this mess she has on? Isn’t this a MORNING TV SHOW? Come on now really, all of this to sell a CD? How about taking your time to produce a soild product so that you and “Def Scam” (I love whoever invented this term…LOL), don’t have to purchase so many copies on iTUNE!

    *Oh yeah, I could care less about her iTUNE score, number, position or whatever so don’t bother!

    I MEAN EVEN A HATER SHOULD AGREE SHE’S IMPROVING ..I MEAN THE GIRL IS STILL 22.. SHE STARTED VERY YOUNG BUT SHE’S PROGRESSING…THAT SHOULD BE THE GOAL….PROGRESSS..

  14. drfenty November 17, 2010

    DEAD@ phaggs like them

    ICANNOOT!

  15. Nichole November 17, 2010

    Coming into her own as a live performer? These are the same people who spends 24/7 ringing Rihanna’s neck because how terrible she sounds live, and how shitty her performances are. Now all of sudden she’s coming into her own as a live performer? Either Trent is severely bipolar he’s being paid to toss in a few compliments.

    Thinking about not voting for Obama in 2012? Watch this video and think again!

  16. Chilly November 17, 2010

    i don’t like how she doesn’t interact with her band. most artists would go up to the guitar player and jam with him. or acknowledge them at the end of the performance.

  17. Truth November 17, 2010

    She did wonderfully…..She’s beautiful…Voice was on point.

    RIHANNA ON BLOGS AKA TGJ:

    “[I still read the blogs] sometimes, it depends on what it is I am trying to find out. I’m a lot more numb to it now only because I understand what it is. It’s a community for people who don’t have anything else to do and hate themselves, they hate their life, they hate their job, they hate their appearance, they are uncomfortable with who they are so what makes them feel good is talking smack about other people who they think they will never ever see in their life and they happen to be celebrities. It seems impossible to ever have the opportunity to say these things to their face, so they get to hide behind their computer.”

  19. plain and simple November 17, 2010

    Well Nicki was on Wendy today. I guess there will be a post about her show also.

    @Chilly

    You put it out there and I’ll bet you that she will be interacting with her band. Watch.

    Her hair not a good look for her unlike Nicki were different colors but she wears is very well. Today on Wendy she was rocking a white blonde wig.

  20. Rebecca November 17, 2010

    Suprisingly her voice was on point! Well atleast on Only Girl (In The World). She sure was working her hair though.

  21. Dana November 17, 2010

    @Nicky

    That message sound like she was talking about you. Did you know that you are a very hateful person yourself? Yes I heard someone saying it on another post also.

  22. FentyFan November 17, 2010

    are you guys serious? rihanna is great if she wasnt she wouldnt be the leading lady.people always say rihanna doesnt know how to sing then why does she have so many number 1 singles. at least she sings live she never lip syncs.

  23. remmy November 17, 2010

    Are you trying to be funny??? That was horrible…5he backup singer did great…they always do…someone has to drown her out…when all else fails sing “Loud”er than her;)

  24. AuntieJackie November 17, 2010

    She’s looking like an alien again….and her outfits are wack.

    R.I.P Fly Rihanna

  25. yuluvshan November 17, 2010

    That message goes to most of the people on this blog including you Nicky. You people constantly come on here to argue and it is annoying. I would love to see how all the people on here who constantly post look like. And don’t you understand that Trent and Sam do this on Purpose. You are putting money in there pockets.

    BTW I don’t know about Sam but Trent is one s*** guy from his twitter picture. But he does get annoying.

  35. drfenty November 17, 2010

    @RNB LOVER

    what sense wud it be for rihanna to cuss out people that supporrt and defend her?

    #EPIC PHAIL!!!!!

    she has said more than enuff times that she loves her navy, and she has acknowledged that her fans are always defending her

    DEAD@ u thinking you know exactly what rihanna was talking about as if u were chilling in her head.

    DEAD@ u tryig to twist words when u know Trentina, Samantha and most of all YOU, got CHECKED, SNATCHED, SLAYED, BAGGED and TAGGED

    run along now little thing..

  36. kw November 17, 2010

    Enjoyed the performance, outfit not so much. but I prefer it that way. If something should outshine it should be the performance. Anywho, purchased her CD, actually worth the money. She has some winners on it. Good luck to her as she stays on her grind promoting.

  37. the kiddz November 17, 2010

    Her camp must have been reading the negative reviews her recent performances are being given. She’s making more of an effort, but she still looks like there are a million other things she could be doing. And what’s up with her outfit?

  38. never lying—-truth teller November 17, 2010

    miss the tv performance this morning, looking at it now its very great….rhi rhi is definitely giving everyone a piece of what they keep yearning for…PS but please dont give in to their opinions on the “red hair”thing, cause i love it

    sidenote**the TGJ has this info even before rihannadaily, either TGJ is way up her alley, or rihannadaily has a slow day today(cause yesterday their site crashed cause of 25000 viewers at once)

  39. Thriller Killer November 17, 2010

    IT’S FUNNY THIS BLOG IS NOW EDITING WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING TAKING OUT THE LINKS OF WHAT A COUPLE OF PEOPLE POSTED

  40. Thriller Killer November 17, 2010

    @ never lying—-truth telle
    THEY ARE NOW GETTING THERE INFO FROM RIHANNA DAILY FORUM

  41. never lying—-truth teller November 17, 2010

    ^^^^i should think so too

  42. never lying—-truth teller November 17, 2010

    where the f*** is NICKY when u need her….i need some stats and figures…NICCCCKKKY

    @THRILLER KILLER i think so as well..TGJ is a copy cat

  43. BENJAMIN November 17, 2010

    She didn’t do too bad here, wayy better than some of her other performances lately.

  44. GROW UP PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! November 17, 2010

    I LOVED IT. THAT IS MY GIRL RIGHT THERE

  45. lala November 17, 2010

    oh s***, my fave is getting better, wow, i must say im shocked, and she looks absolutely beautiful, i actually love the long red hair, and her outfit is hot!

  46. SLAY FOR CISUS/F*** RIHMODEL November 17, 2010

    {Freezes Time} WHHHHHHHHHHHHAAATT????????????? Who dis immigrant think she is? Hide behind their computer??? B**** you don’t wanna meet anyone who is NOT a fan of yours cause im almost CERTAIN it would be the Chris Brown incident all over again. I can’t believe she went there. And then you got DUMBASSES like @Nicky who CLEARLY don’t see that she’s one of the people RihTake is referring to. She said the Community, not the site owners, or authors of the post. Basically b****, you are just as pathetic, and worthless as she’s trying to make sam and trent to be. SMH, but imo you stan for Rihahahahahah which means you really are even LOWER than that. And did she say unhappy w/their appearance???? Maybe she didn’t see the two #LAReidNavy memebers that got camera time and damn near cracked the lens. I REFUSE. Anyway your PATHETIC navy can never bring up talent in her defense. ALL YOU HAVE are numbers and charts….SO WHERE ARE THESE FIRST/SECOND DAY SALES FOR LOUD!….The Navy are mathematicians i’d expect ya’ll to have a trajectory of WW sales by now. Get Loud B******……..

  47. Nothing But My Opinion November 17, 2010

    so boring she just stands there or walk around zzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

  48. bobs November 17, 2010

    Nice – I agree until now her performances from this ERA of Only Girl have not been good. She sounded great on both songs here, FINALLY. However, she always sound terrible on her first few outings with a song. I remember Umbrella and Russian Roulette starting horridly, then building to some awesome performances. Muscle memory people!

  49. GangsterA November 17, 2010

    she killed it it looks like she had fun and her fans really love her how cute

  50. alaiza November 17, 2010

    if u think she cant sing after those 2 performance ur obviously a r*****, eat s*** haters!! my jaw dropped, rihanna is drop dead gorgeous, and her personality was on point!!! all hail the queen of pop!!! its all about rihanna + beyonce . gaga + taylor aint s***, they only have high album sales because this is white america!!! majority of america is white and majority of music consumers are, u guessed it …white. white girls favor their white artist, and its not really a color thing, its that they relate to them more

  51. Irish Cream November 17, 2010

    Wow trent deserves a round of applause. That’s what i’m talking about. Keeping it real. Yes rihanna is stepping up her game. Goes to show that she does want to give her fans what they want. Good job all aroound ri ri.

    SHES FINALLY PERFORMING BETTER THAN BRITNEY, KATY, KESHA, ETC.

    lawd!!!! shes slaying me!!!

  54. DANA November 17, 2010

    Rihanna sound good because they were using her backtrack to cover up her horrible voice. Even the band was playing loud.

  55. Irish Cream November 17, 2010

    ^^
    As bob marley so rightly said. ” Who the cap fit, let them wear it.” You obviously took offense to what she said, because you are the type of people she is talking about. If you know she wasn’t referring to you. Why get so worked up? If your conscience is clear you have nothing to worry about.

  56. Irish Cream November 17, 2010

    Rihanna sounds good because she put in work and sung her songs to perfection. If it was due to backtracking, don’t you think she would use the back track with ALL Of her performances to ensure she sounded good all the time, like many of today’s artists do. Give credit where its due. It won’t kill you you know. You guys would never give this girl her props.

  57. sorry November 17, 2010

    Rihanna was not singing the whole song live. But that hair is awful and her outfit made her ass flat as a pancake. And it was also ugly. The two whatever RihannaNavy knowing they was going to be on TV would have looked better than they did, because they needed something to oversee their looks.

  58. not good November 17, 2010

    umm what the f*** is going on with the grapejuice why are they not calling her names like billy goat, model with the mike what the f*** umm iam lost. can the rihannanavy or anyone at that explain to me s*** what about you @ nicky can you make a since of what’s going on with the grapejuice. As a beyonce stan i usually come on here to see and read comments coming from these fools sam and trent plus the idiot stans of other artist complaining about everything rihanna. but now things seem to be different from sam and trent there are even some nice comments from others which is shocking damn am i missing something. Oh and BTW idiots rihanna can sing now she may not be a consistent vocallest but she can def hold her own vocally fools. Y’all would know that by attending a live show of her’s not this youtube s*** but anyways she did great and sounds wonderful vocally. one thing i love about this b**** is no matter if she sound bad or not she will always give you a live performance vocally unlike others which shows that she is really a risk taker in every aspect of the word and i can appreciate that although i am a B stan makes me understand that she is only human. also i love the album got a copy yesterday.

  59. sorry November 17, 2010

    One thing about Bob Marley he like others that are not here knew what the industry was all about. This is why he did not want his kids to become singers because if you don’t play their way you do not become famous.

    Bob was not anti-christ either in one verse to his song he said DON’T LET THEM FOOL YOU.

  60. Jean alchemist November 17, 2010

    Y.A.W.N!

  61. Tha Phoenix November 17, 2010

    This is what I’ve been saying for a while. Rih constantly works to improve herself, vocally and performance-wise. I like people who work hard. Rih is constantly on her grind – unlike many artists who clearly have a sense of entitlement and can’t deliver.

    I’m not here for them.

    Props to Rih.

  62. TruthBeTold November 17, 2010

    She need to stick to lip synching…she sounds a mess!
    Dont even try live sweety, its not for you.

  63. Beysus November 17, 2010

    she honestly doesnt sound that bad you ppl always watch Rihanna hoping for the worst and even when she does a good job you will find something wrong quit being miserable and enjoy life this was a good performance and loud is a good album BIG DEAL.

  64. Blue Kid November 17, 2010

    Rihanna fans your Goddess just said this about you fools!

    Blogers, It’s a community for people who don’t have anything else to do and hate themselves, they hate their life, they hate their job, they hate their appearance, they are uncomfortable with who they are so what makes them feel good is talking smack about other people who they think they will never ever see in their life and they happen to be celebrities.

  65. Gilberto November 17, 2010

    Even with 3 #1 hits only in 2010 and huge promo, Loud won’t debut at #1 spot. According to HDD, “Rihanna’s fifth Def Jam/IDJ album, Loud, will debut with between 180-190k.”. BTW, HDD is always right about their predictions.

    Less than 200k. LOL. Where’s Rihanna’s stans at?
    1) Susan Boyle
    2) Jackie Evancho (Who?)
    3) Rihanna or Rascal Flatts

    Maybe she’ll get her #1 with her 6th album, which is coming in the end of 2011, right? As always.

  66. Diva November 17, 2010

    @ GIlberto: Yes! Her stans swore this album would be a massive hit. Maybe worldwide. We shall see. Seems to be just a lot hype to me.

  67. Yellow Gorillah November 17, 2010

    YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS Rih Show dem

    Noow this is what I like to see from Rihanna

    As a true fan I have always wanted her to improver on her live vocals and it is nice to see that she is working harder and trying her best to do so. I give her props for that ..

    IS IT ME OR SINCE SHE GOT THIS NEW HAIRSTYLE SHE HAS BECOME MORE OF A “DIVA” IF SO SHE BETTA KEEP THIS LONG ASS RED HAIR! BECAUSE SHE SLAYYING ME =P

    GET LOUD B******!!

  68. Irish Cream November 17, 2010

    @bluekid nice try. She obviously wasn’t talking about her supporters, that comment was directed to the haters like yourself. Don’t get mad cause you know its true.

  69. Irish Cream November 17, 2010

    @ Bluekid, At least she didn’t call her fans Whack like your boy Chris Brown.

  70. #YeahISaidIt November 17, 2010

    Not the best BUT better

  71. Jean alchemist November 17, 2010

    In a city of the tone deaf:riri is king.

  72. OBI TEXAS November 17, 2010

    She was really good! She sounded just like the record.

    Leave Rihanna alone y’all. She did what she had to do here. Great look, sound, and interacting with the crowd.

    Go Rihanna!!!

    LOUD!

  73. Blue Kid November 18, 2010

    What ever makes you guys feel good about yourselves, but she said blogger’s, meaning you! But if it make you feel good believe what you want about the little devil worshiper! “F*** You” in my Rihanna voice!

  74. Irish Cream November 18, 2010

    @ bluekid right back at yah!!

  75. Brandy 4ever November 18, 2010

    THIS IS THE FIRST TIME IVE HEARD TRENT SAY SOMETHING HALF GOOD ABOUT RIHANNA! I am shocked

  76. Laurie November 18, 2010

    ok not a rihanna fan at all but I can be objective by saying that this performance was great, voice, energy, presence on point I think her long have help her to understand what is performing. so good job

  77. Miss Nobody December 15, 2010

    @ all the ppl on this blog saying Rihanna cant perform. Stop trashing the girl. I suggest you watch her GGGB concert she performed in Manchester and THEN u can say what you want. Even if, in ur opinion, she ALWAYS sound bad when performing live watch that videos then u will be blown away. But of course u gona find sumthing negative to say. Also, I recall an idiot on another blog saying that her dancers looked old. Im betting that they have more energy than u seeing that theyre OLD. Peace out!!
