Rihanna Puts Herself on Repeat for Grammy Nominations Concert Performance
While creative, the Barbadian beauty was surprisingly predictable in her performance. Clad in the same red and white striped top, black and white striped skirt/bloomers, and black combat boots that she wore last time she was at O2 -- and that she also wears in her promo shots for 'Talk That Talk' -- RiRi made her usual spectacle of lights, confetti and choreography.
Even her banter was the same as it was when she performed 'We Found Love' for the first time two weeks ago. "London, let's making some f---ing noise!" she said as she burst into the tune, while towards the conclusion the song, she once more demanded that the audience jump. The only real difference was a shout out to the awards: "Give it up for the Grammy nominees!"
While her dance moves pumped up the energy, they made her so out of breath at times that she could barely be heard over her backing track, and at some points she didn't sing the lyrics at all. While her set was surely a sight, Rihanna may actually be trying -- and working -- too hard.
