Rihanna, Drake & Bruno Mars Rehearse For The Grammy Awards

Published: Saturday 12th Feb 2011 by Trent

Rihanna, Drake and Bruno Mars will all hit the stage at this weekend’s 53rd Annual Grammy Awards ceremony. Australia’s Sky News captured footage of the young stars rehearsing for the show which feel feature Drake and Rihanna performing ‘What’s My Name?’ and Bruno Mars doing a rendition of his smash hit ‘Grenade’.

Peep the footage below:

Rihanna has bronchitis? Maybe if she stopped smoking moments before she attempts to sing then she shouldn’t have that problem. Just a thought.

Thoughts?

    I’m not here for rihanna and drake performing a mediocre song that went #1..good for them though, they should date lol

  4. True Blue February 12, 2011

    I just hope that the good performance she put on X-Factor last year wasn’t a fluke. First Rihanna performance I EVER truly enjoyed, and hopefully it won’t be the last.

    But luckily this won’t be the focal point of the Grammys.

  5. FUCKYOUTRENT February 12, 2011

    Trent u saw nothing wrong with the performance footage so you had to go on and b**** about her health… What a worthless life wasted like serious why are u alive? If i ever saw u things would change 🙂

    Yes, Rih Rih! I see you took our tweets to make sure this performance was even better than the AMA one to heart!

    Love it!

    My only wish is that they could have showed Mamma Monster’s rehearsal… unless she hasn’t had one yet?

    Either way, can’t wait for Sunday!

  11. KASEY JR. February 12, 2011

    Rihanna is funny: “let me say I have Bronchitis then if I f***** the perf after Willow,Lady gaga and Bieber ‘s performances,I will be able to blame it on the disease”

    What can bronchitis can do to her voice anyways ????? SMH

    Still happy that she is trying her best like back in the day,cause WILLOW AIENT PLAYING ON STAGE

  14. UGh February 12, 2011

    I love BRUNO MARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i can’t wait to see his performance.

    I see rihanna gyrating like an island girl is supposed to. I bet she’s been practicing after that AMA fail. I feel a little bit proud *tear*

    oh so Drake loves Rihanna with all his heart???? dude is really “in love”.

  15. TIMMI February 12, 2011

    Bruno is always on point. Rihanna’s performance looking good but I hope she switches up from the same tired Africa theme I keep seeing.

    @FUCKYOUTRENT

    B**** STFU, don’t go bringing Mimi into this. OBVIOUSLY she ain’t performing EINSTEIN; she’s carrying two babies in her stomach.

    Why don’t people just read the tweet? A fan knew she was sick because she pulled out of a performance this week due to Bronchitis and Laryngitis which she contracted through the flu. Not a big deal because she looked, sounded and danced nicely here. I hope she brings it with the performance cos she really wants to.

  17. Dave February 12, 2011

    Bruno will SLAY! Thee end..

  18. Jose Mª February 12, 2011

    Rihanna Sounded amazing, you don’t like it and we know it. But stop saying what it’s not true.

  19. X_POSED99 February 12, 2011

    I wonder how loud Rihanna’s backing track will be… must be like her track LOUD!!!

  20. FUCKYOUTRENT February 12, 2011

  25. TIMMI February 12, 2011

    @X_POSED99

    1. FAIL. Rihanna doesn’t have a TRACK called Loud, she has an ALBUM called Loud.

    2. Even if she did, your comment would not be funny.

    @FUCKYOUTRENT

    LMAO. Why you mad? You need help, like seriously. What type of human wishes that stuff of another? You are a pathetic excuse for a human.

  26. DION-ISH February 12, 2011

    I Like Bruno Mars…Hes Sweet and Really Cool

    BUT, I Just CAN NOT with his music, I Dislike Grenade and Just The Way You Are…..He Has a few better tracks on his album though.

  27. sane beyhanna stan February 12, 2011

    Yess bruno I have a feeling he will deliver, I <3 him ! And I won't say anything about rihs snippet rehersal ill wait till the grammys to give judgement.

  28. TIMMI February 12, 2011

    @LOUMORGAN

    LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    WHAT WAS THAT MESS YOU JUST MADE ME WATCH?

    YOU CAN’T BE SERIOUS?!?!?!?!??!?!?!!!!!

  29. lax February 12, 2011

    rihanna has always been able to sing and move that ass, she was born with it .
    just because you have never seen her mop the floor with her choochie does not mean she can’t do it. she does what she wants to when she gets good and ready.

  30. JohnVidal February 12, 2011

    Is Rihanna going to do the exact same thing she did at the AMA´s! Girl it was an improvement but just that. You can´t dance or sing without sounding annoying or write or talk properly…. you can pose though!
    At least bruno Mars is true talent. Not my cup of tea but very talented.
    And to the ones staying pressed about a woman officially not in the spotlight right now and carrying to babies… man, you are so sad! Your fav will never achieve any type of career similar to the one she has! Enough said

  31. Royalkev February 12, 2011

    I’m quite impressed with Rihanna, she’s being a fighter. It’s nice that she’s continuing on even though she’s feeling ill. Nice ass too! She looks great! This will be interesting.

    *NEW* Check out: Thepagewithroyalkev.blogspot.com (where there’s a place for EVERYTHING and EVERYTHING has it’s place).

  32. DION-ISH February 12, 2011

    Rihanna is SUPER busy this month, Grammys, Brits, NBA Halftime PLUS LGOE tour continuing while also having to Rehearse for LOUD Tour….S***! I Hope she can pull it all off well….So Exciting!

  33. Roddd February 12, 2011

    okay RIHANNA I SEE SOME DANCING IM EXCITED JUST FOR THAT!!!!

  34. Scott February 12, 2011

    Can someone explain where is Bruno Mars from and what race is he considered.He is included in Latina magazine Top 25 Latinos and I thought he was from the Phillipines.

  35. sane beyhanna stan February 12, 2011

    I’m proud rih is pushing through her illness and fighting back now that’s a TRUE ARTIST!

  36. DION-ISH February 12, 2011

    @SCOTT

    He’s Also Puerto Rican

  37. DION-ISH February 12, 2011

    @SANE BEYHANNA STAN

    Aw me Too! This is the same woman that has performed in Damn Blizzard for her fans!

  38. Nichole February 12, 2011

    I’ll be tuning in for GaGa, and the Aretha tribute. None else are worth watching.

  39. salz February 12, 2011

    i’m looking forward to both rihanna’s and bruno’s performances

  40. sane beyhanna stan February 12, 2011

    @Dion-ish
    True she’s a trooper! I’m kinda upset that she won’t perform S&M but a good What’s My Name Performance will suffice!

  41. sane beyhanna stan February 12, 2011

    Also @Ingrid Okonata
    I hope CB wins atleast 1 grammy because itd be his First and after all he’s been through itd be the icing on the cake 🙂

  42. DION-ISH February 12, 2011

    @SANE BEYHANNA STAN

    Yea I wanted her to as well but judging by her schedule she needs more time to rehearse it and i dont think Performing S&M on the Grammys for the first time while a lil sick would be good for her! lol Shes usually grows into her performances after a couple times.

  43. sane beyhanna stan February 12, 2011

    @Dion-ish
    Yess as of late she always grows into it instead of killing it right off the back! I think her performances lately have showed promise

  44. DION-ISH February 12, 2011

    ^^^

    TRUE TEA.

  45. jasminee February 12, 2011

    I’m not here for Rihanna, Drake or that tired ass song. Why can’t she perform S&M? The only song I semi like by her.

    Is it true that Britney is performing as well? I thought I read that somewhere but maybe not

  46. Woow February 12, 2011

    RiRi has been begging for an album that would bring out the island girl and she got it. Now she’s tryna come for Beyonces wig wit her banji dancing self.

    I see you Ri!

    Bey’s somewhere in Kingston stealing moves from some dancehall Queen whilst Gaga and Brit are LOL at these two brown girls as I write.

  47. Dahlia February 12, 2011

    Well it looks like another FAIL as far as performances go, especially the fact that Rihanna is performing.

  48. Keesha February 12, 2011

    Bruno, Janelle Monae, and Aretha Franklin tribute. That is all!!!

    “Also @Ingrid Okonata
    I hope CB wins atleast 1 grammy because itd be his First and after all he’s been through itd be the icing on the cake ”

    I agree and I also agree with @Ingrid Okonata

    “so she will sound worse than she already sounds live, there is no god :/”

    There is a God. Haven’t you ever heard of DVR? Or VCR recording? You can just fast forward through the performances and awards you don’t want to see. That’s exactly what I’m going to do. There’s no point in sitting through the entire Grammys show anymore. It’s not like the music industry is pushing talented performs anymore anyway. They just care about money.

    GUYSSSSS SHE’S PERFORMING S&M ON THE BRITS!! WHICH IS ONLY LIKE A DAY AFTER THE GRAMMYS!

  52. alexismorellcarringtoncolbydexterrowan February 12, 2011

    I love Bruno mars; he is a really talented artist, something sorely missing from most male artists these days. Plus he can actually sing (unlike, say Mr. Bieber). Rihanna, sigh, you would be @ss-shaking at the Grammy’s, but when your pipes come up short, I guess the p*ssy will have to fill in the rest.

    *Mariah-Whitney-Celine-Janet-Madonna*

  53. alexis carrington February 12, 2011

    @FUCKYOUTRENT

    You’re pathetic. To wish anything but positivity on someone’s children is repugnant; especially over some island s****. The sign of a fan of an inferior artist is to illogically demean another (better) one.

  54. tumay February 12, 2011

    Im looking forward to Bruno Mars and Rihanna

  55. DION-ISH February 12, 2011

    @ALEXISMORELLCARRINGTONCOLBYDEXTERRO

    Im All For Opinions and What not but the Justin Bieber comparison is unnecessary, Justin Bieber is very talented and he can in fact sing…esp for his age.

    If your going to compare Bruno Mars to anybody let it be someone more his age-field like Chris Brown, Derulo, etc. Which I think he’s slightly better vocally then….

  56. alexis carrington February 12, 2011

    @DION-ISH

    I agree, vocally he is better than those guys also. However, in terms of the popular/hot male singers (of which Bieber is currently the most popular), I stand by my comment. He as some potential, but even for his age, I think he could be a better singer. I would like to see him take her vocals as serious as his swagg, something he is always working on, so that he doesn’t end up vocally limited like some of our current, former teen male heartthrob singers who focused more on charm/s** appeal than vocal ability.

    *Mariah-Whitney-Celine-Janet-Madonna*

  57. anyway February 12, 2011

    that’s the same routine from the AMA’S

    she’s a one trick pony…mostly trick

  58. Dahlia February 12, 2011

    Rihanna has the worst vocals in the industry. Katy Perry and Ke$ha has her beat IMO. And as far as dancing goes Katy has her beat too.

  59. DION-ISH February 12, 2011

    @ALEXIS CARRINGTON

    OK..Well I Can agree to disagree because i think his voice fits him well, really cute and i dont he should have to worry about trying to out-do himself vocally as of right now… Nobody’s saying he’s Usher or R.kelly vocally for god sakes. He’s young, let him mature and grow.

    And Why do you put *Mariah-Whitney-Celine-Janet-Madonna* after your comments

    Just Curious.

  60. Rihanna’s Throat February 12, 2011

    Ain’t nothing wrong with me. She is alwyas straining me with yodeling or notes we can never pull off. That’s why we try to trick u with wearing little on our a**…its all an illusion and what surprises me is that u people keep falling for it!!!

    @FuckYouTrent Don’t be so angry. Trent is simply using his ears and telling the truth. Y need to be mad at Rihanna for blaming this ish on me!!! Im the victim here!!! Me not her, not u, but me her throat!!!

  61. Rihanna’s Throat February 12, 2011

    Maybe Aubrey will help by singing my notes with is dry tone. Or better yet add to the illusion with is slap happy flapping hand. Im just looking for some way to get this boring heffa to stop blaming me. How she gonna try to dance, if thats what yall call it, and try to sing. Im taking a stand and just not gonna show up so I can save everyone’s ears…but you’re on your own with your eyes.

  62. Shouw February 12, 2011

    Can’t wait for Bruno Mars’s performance !!

  63. LOL February 12, 2011

    I guess im only hyped about Bruno Mars Performance even though it’ll probably be boring

    cause Bruno doesn’t DANCE . RIHANNA & DRAKE performance will be interesting to watch they have never performed there song together on one stage

    TRUTHFULLY NOTHING GAGA CAN DO ON STAGE TOMORROW WILL MAKE
    LIKE THAT S***** SONG BTW. IT SUCH #EPICFAILURE

    if only Chris brown could then again his new music is kinda GENERIC like BTW

    so i doubt i would’ve enjoyed his performance if it wasn’t on MUTE.

  64. alexis carrington February 12, 2011

    @DION-ISH

    “*Mariah-Whitney-Celine-Janet-Madonna*” is just a siggy of sorts. It repersents, imo, THE female music industry. MWC are the vocal trinity and JM are the performance queens. Imo, nearly every female performer out today, and some yesterday, follow a trail, or a blended trail, of these 5 women.

  65. guest February 12, 2011

    Screw this crap. I’m only watching the Grammy’s to see Bob Dylan. And I’m 17, mind you.

    Drake STFU! If you love that nasty S*** so much, take her home to mommy in Canada and you 2 stay there!

    There is nothing wrong with RihSKANK’s voice just sucking to much D***! She’s was practicing…..LOL? As if that’s going to help her horrible goat sounding screeches!

    Yeah Bruno HOW DID IT HAPPEN? Although I do love Granade!

  71. KaVion February 12, 2011

    This looks like a VMA performance, not a Grammy performance.
    I’d rather her to an acoustic version of a song or something like California King Bed. The Grammy’s don’t usually have “poppy” little performances. They’re about showing off your vocals and showing everyone WHY you’re nominated. Drake should be performing Fireworks & Rihanna should be doing something with more substance.

    rihanna shouldnt be performing if shes sick. katy perry did that at the EMAs and looked how that turned out. i hope she wins a grammy this year, along with rihanna

  74. LTM February 12, 2011

    why are there so many rihanna haters here?
    i guess when your on top, everyone hates you

    Yes! And I hope he attends! You can’t miss the Grammy’s. Especially when you are nominated for 3!

    @KAVION
    SHE SHOULD PERFORM RUSSIAN ROULETTE TO PROMOTE RATED R CAUSE THE ALBUM WAS HER BEST.SHE SHOULD SHOW HER MOST MATURE SIDE AT THE GRAMMY.

    THATS WHY I HAVE MORE RESPECT FOR KATY PERRY THAN HER.

    NOBODY WANT TO SEE GAGA PERFORM BTW OR WHAT? LMAOOO

    TELL ‘EM! You said it all w/o even having to invoke the Queen’s name. Yes, that are bad b****** in the game but only 5 of THE baddest.

  81. alexis carrington February 12, 2011

    @ JohnVidal

    I’ve been occasionally breezing through here and seeing what the thoughts were, especially on the Queens. I saw that many a mind on here is foolish and so, like Joan Collins did when she entered season 2 of “Dynasty”, I come to blow the spot!

  82. DION-ISH February 12, 2011

    @KAT DELUNA FAN

    She wasn’t scheduled to perform at the Grammys but because of High Demand they had to work something out. It would be stupid to perform Russian Roulette….This is not a tour, Shes in a different Era and Whats My Name is one of her biggest hits RIGHT NOW. Shes already also performing LTWYL so you can get a more mature record then.

    —-

    And To the Individual above, Rihanna can in fact sing acoustic, maybe your to blinded by your hate to realize but thats cool too, Rihanna still slays!

    @LTM
    Yea I agree she really shouldn’t perform
    @KaVion
    I couldn’t agree more the grammys never were for spontaneous performances like this.
    I just hope this isn’t a replica of the AMA performance

  84. Speaks Truth February 13, 2011

    Yeah Rihanna You better shake that s*** s***!!! Lmaooooo I really think she going kill it!!

  85. KaVion February 13, 2011

    @SANE BEYHANNA STAN
    Judging from the rehearsals, the only difference is Drake.
    The Grammy’s are in a completely different direction this year. I mean JADEN SMITH is performing? At least Justin can sing though. I really think Rihanna should perform an acoustic version of Only Girl or just do California King Bed.

    @DION-ISH
    Who said Em was performing LTWYL?
