Watch: Rihanna Performs Elijah Blake’s ‘No Love Allowed’ Live At ‘Diamonds’ World Tour


While this may be hard to believe, we’ve finally found a performance pulled from Rihanna‘s first ‘Diamonds‘ outing that sees her deliver a decent vocal.

Channeling her inner Islander, the Grammy winning belle took the grand stage to perform the Elijah Blake penned jam ‘No Love Allowed’, packing the power and conviction other performances from the show lacked.

Fan footage below…

Though she’s no Rita Ora, Rihanna‘s voice does pack a mean punch when at its best.

Perhaps, as is the case with most limited entertainers, her pipes can only truly shine when there is enough ‘room’ in each line of a song to do so- hence her stellar servings of ‘Stay‘ and ‘Diamonds‘ but unfortunate showings of ‘Where Have You Been and ‘We Found Love’.

Maybe, to ensure her live vocals are just as good as those in the studio, Riri should stick to her lower register (F3,F#3 and G3) and leave the higher notes to those who can actually hit them without sounding like a chorus of constipated kittens.

Like so.

        Well im sick of beyonce always being added to someone’s post like she’s queen or something cause shes not Madonna is so know that

    • OnikaSlays March 10, 2013

      Sister, I want you to be careful about how you talk about the Queen. We’ve been nice to Ci because that Livin it up songs actually shits so we gave her a pass but if you keep on disrespecting the Queen I will be forced to drag you up and down this comment section and fling you to the Navy.

    • Mb92 March 10, 2013

      I love me some Ciara, I really do but as ciara stans we shouldn’t argue with numbers as far as Bey and Rih is concerned… maybe with other R&B chicks… One things for certain Ciara shits on Rihanna live

  17. Carmen (JJ Fan) March 10, 2013

    I don’t think it was as bad as the other videos.

  18. WTF March 10, 2013

    That’s not Rihanna’s body. Photoshop much 🙁

  19. Lydia March 10, 2013

    Sam we all know Beyonce is a way better performer than Rihanna, there was no need to put that video in though.

    • AQueenLikeB March 10, 2013

      The Titanic need to be reminded.

  20. ANDY March 10, 2013

    “Riri should stick to her lower register (F3,F#3 and G3…”

    Oh, so TGJ are, all of a sudden, specialists in heptatonic vocal scales?


    Anyway, once again, Tropical-Storm “Rihanna” delivers… In my opinion.

    I was there, at her Buffalo concert. THE B**** IS A F****** SUPER-STAR. Irrespective of her “Talent”.

    • Sierra March 10, 2013


      @Andy is BACK!

    • PinkPussyBarb March 10, 2013

      ‘Irrespective of her talent’. That’s right b**** cos you know her ass ain’t gone none. I personally believe Rihanna is an escort who uses her music career as ads for her services.

      Suck and blow=$1
      Missionary= Priceless.

      • ANDY March 10, 2013


        Gwooorl, u cute!


    • CreoleSupremacy March 10, 2013

      Yay, Andy is back from the family planning center. So what was it? H***** or the crabs?

      • ANDY March 10, 2013



        Um, I think it’s both B****.

        U wanna see?

        Kiii. 😉

      • PinkPussyBarb March 10, 2013

        Kiiii, you know i love you sis.

      • XOXO March 10, 2013

        I CANT LMAO!!!!!!!!!!

  21. Cream March 10, 2013

    Rihanna was not that bad. But Beyonce omg that was so Beautiful wow

  22. King B>Rihanna March 10, 2013

    F*** Your excuses

    Gaga did several tour dates while exhausted, sick, or suffering from an injured hip. That’s all we’re going to say.

    All we’re going to say is that B performed ‘I Am… Yours’ and ‘Listen’ at the Grammys while sick.

    • CiCi Slaaaaays March 10, 2013

      But your fav lip syncs for her life..

      • King B>Rihanna March 10, 2013

        you are clearly looking for the attention your fav not getting so i shall not give you it.

  23. DiscoHeaven1984 March 10, 2013

    Flop b****** and their excuses.

      • Jamilaa March 10, 2013

        hahahahahhahahahaha gosh am rolling on tha floor @ QUEEN OF NAVY! DRAGGGG that HO!

  25. Special Delivery March 10, 2013

    I cant at the Navy making excuses. She was sick lmao. That shouldn’t affect your performance, if you are good enough. GaGa has performed sick, the b**** even threw up on stage and still gave a good show. Beyonce f****** performed that whole set of Glastonbury vomiting in the breaks (as Gwyneth Paltrow said) and I am Yours at Las Vegas she had flu.

  26. CiCi Slaaaaays March 10, 2013

    Atleast Riherpes sings live thats all ima say

    • Special Delivery March 10, 2013

      She doesn’t all the time b****. Look up the numb performance.

    I TALK LIKE THIS CAUSE I CAN BACK IT UP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • XOXO March 10, 2013


  28. Let’s Be Real March 10, 2013

    Let’s be real..NAVY! is Rihanna ever HEALTHY? why is it everytimeEVERY DAMN TIME she performs y’all say “she sick..she got laryngitis
    .chris brown pencil d*** busted a nut on her vocal chords” its always SOMETHING! the bottom line is she reaches for notes that her idols (Beyoncé, Mariah, Whitney) could hit while yawning ( literally Beyoncé hits high notes while yawning see bey exp version performance of irreplaceable) and she struggles for them.Beyoncé, Mariah, Whitney etc have all performed under sick conditions and STILL SLAYED. So stop with the she has the flu.its tired. Nobody gets the flu 4-5 times a year except b****** who can’t wash they hands.

  29. XtinaaLovee March 10, 2013

    The hive really thinks beyonce sings live…lol

    anyways rihanna was fine

    • Special Delivery March 10, 2013

      No they don’t, the difference is we know Beyonce CAN still sing and put on great show. Everyone coming for her like every other popstar don’t do it shows the desperation.

      • King B>Rihanna March 10, 2013

        flaw free so i guess singing from your throat and not your diaphragm, straining to hit big notes, losing your upper range because of poor technique, bad breathing techniques, changing the tone of your voice because of lack of musicianship, ok keep deluding yourself.

    • King B>Rihanna March 10, 2013

      coming from a xtina fan……gurl continue and shade your-self. it is quite enjoyable unlike Christina hollering.

      • XtinaaLovee March 10, 2013

        Christina can still give a good flaw free soulful LIVE vocal performance. She didn’t have to lip sync her way thru the whole national anthem kiii

      • Yolo March 10, 2013

        Oh beby girl Christina is the reason people lip sync that s*** kiii.

  30. XtinaaLovee March 10, 2013

    Ciara an icon???

  31. MDNA2013 March 10, 2013

    Put down the weed, pick up the voice training.

  32. Yolo March 10, 2013

    YASSS for that Beautiful Ones Cover by Beyonce, I was officially slayed after that set!

  33. KimKCameToSlay March 10, 2013

    I like Rihanna’s voice better because she doesn’t yell.

    • Yolo March 10, 2013

      Kim K came to slay what? Lol. D***?

      • KimKCameToSlay March 10, 2013

        Drake’s eyebrow pencil.

      • Yolo March 10, 2013

    Rihanna >>>>>>>>> Rita Ora everything else.

  35. XtinaaLovee March 10, 2013

    • King B>Rihanna March 10, 2013

  36. mc the place to be! March 10, 2013

    Putting Beyonce with mariah and Whitney is ludicrous and Sam this post is goig to get messy smh I’m still trying to understand your hate for Rihanna but you give her all of your energy and time writing posts about herim sure Kevin and makael will most likely get an interview with both Rihanna and Beyonce because they don’t put them against each other!

    • AguilerasHeart March 10, 2013

      Did you buy Triumphlop?

      • XtinaaLovee March 10, 2013

  37. Special Delivery March 10, 2013

    Lol @ these deluded pressed b****** now all praising Rita who? And the irony is its Christina and Ciara fans lmao. Oh but Beyonce lip syncs. Like you know, cos nobody with talent has NEVER done it before. The Struggle to downgrade Beyonce is soooooooo REAL.

    • TeamOra March 10, 2013

    Beyonce doing old stuff still s***>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>the other girls.

  74. Vegas Girl March 10, 2013

    Watching the Beyonce performance, I UNDERTAND why her fans go so hard for her, she goes hard for them EVERYTIME she hits that stage. That’s worth paying for IMO. Ive never seen her go halfway which I will always appreciate.

    Rihanna sounded good for that type of song she sang and when she stays in her groove, she’s ok. Her fans like it so I guess that’s what really matters and they have their own opinion on her performance style.

  75. dirtypeaches March 10, 2013


  76. Dev March 10, 2013

    People still think Beyonce sings live at her concerts.

    said before and i’ll say again. Example: when she fell down the stairs in concert and jumped up so fast is because she would have been seen as a fraud as the backing track with vocals would’ve still been playing.
    Beyonce could’ve taken a break after falling hard down them stairs but if hse had it would’ve all been over

    She stays on your mind doesn’t she Samantha, it was still a sold out show, people still had fun and she still made her money. I can see why you’re salty.

    Rihanna, killing Beyonce’s career since 2007.

      Rihanna could never KILL Mrs. Carter’s career. Mrs. C has talent!!!. Rihanna is an overrated IMAGE..

    this isn’t a good example of Rihanna’s good performances. I personally think the victoria secrete fashion show was one of her best….and no shade at beyonce but she’s not a high range singer either just because Beyonce’s vocal capability extends far beyond 3 notes does not make her the best example of high octave vocals…Aaliyah, Janet Jackson and Mariah Carey would have been better examples imo
