Rihanna was tonight's musical guest on a new SNL hosted by Anne Hathway. Above and below are her two performances - the first for the current single "Diamonds", and the second, a premiere of a song off the upcoming album, Unapologetic, "Stay".
First, the problems with "Diamonds" begin with the 90s video game style graphics acting as the background, instead of SNL's classy set. I didn't see the connection between those graphics and the song, unless it was to detract from a lack of booming vocals from Ri-Ri. The second performance of "Stay" was better, however, as Rihanna slowed it down to sing over a simple piano melody. Not that I'm expecting huge vocals from her, but it still wasn't there til the very end of this one.
What did you all think of the performances?
