RiRi led off the two-hour ‘Voice’ finale with a stunning performance of her single ‘Diamonds,’ a performance a source close to the singer tells us that she was ‘excited’ about doing! Read on for all the details!

Rihanna stopped by The Voice on Tuesday, Dec. 18 to help the NBC show celebrate their epic two-hour finale! The pop princess was the first performance of the night, opening the show with her hit single “Diamonds”. As a source close to her told us Rihanna was really excited about performing for her fans!

Surrounded on stage by dozens of strands of lights hanging from the ceiling, meant to replicate the “diamonds in the sky,” Rihanna looked stunning in a black pantsuit, belted at the waist. The neck allowed for plenty of chest to be exposed, though RiRi opted to show off a gorgeous necklace that hid much of her cleavage.

A source close to Rihanna spoke with HollywoodLife.com exclusively about her performance, which was actually pre-taped the night before it aired.”…you know, I wasn’t even there but I saw her yesterday and I knew she was going there. She was thinking about what she wanted to perform off her new album…She was excited about doing The Voice…She just going non-stop this month with everything but s**t, at this point it ain’t even about the money, it’s about her fans and her music. She just trying to stay busy. That’s all.”

Could Rihanna be trying to stay busy to keep her mind off her recent troubles with on-again/off-again boyfriend Chris Brown? As we previously reported, the two haven’t been speaking much recently, as Karrueche Tran has found her way back into Chris’ orbit.

Earlier in the day on Dec. 18, Rihanna confirmed that she’s a single woman on her Instagram account, sharing a photo with the message, “Being single sucks. The only thing I get to do anymore is whatever the f**k I want to do.” As long as it allows her more time for performances like tonight’s on The Voice, is it terrible of us to hope she stays single?
