Rihanna may have polarized critics with that headlining performance at the 2023 Super Bowl’s halftime show, but her mesmerizing showing at the 95th annual Academy Awards just one month later undoubtedly left naysayers silenced.
Taking to the Dolby Theatre stage in Los Angeles on Sunday (March 12), the pregnant diva dropped jaws with a soaring live rendition of her latest hit, ‘Lift Me Up.’
The tune, famously found aboard the soundtrack of 2022’s ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,’ was also nominated for Best Original Song at the night’s festivities against the likes of Diane Warren, Lady Gaga, and others.
Accompanied by an orchestra and small choir, look inside to see the ‘Diamonds‘ hitmaker shine like only she can.

Nicki too busy antagonizing the new rap chicks.

I think she reached climax. She’s the epitome of whiny.
Rih was better off just hitting play on the track and miming. She sounded awful. Gaga killed her performance. True talent.
Gaga sounded and looked awful. Ri was good. That song is boring tho. And I love her.
She. Looked. STUNNING!! Great performance, too.
My A$$ is up

Keep me close
Safe and sound
Bad vocals as usual 😔😞🥴
