Rihanna Stuns With ‘Diamonds’ Performance On ‘The Voice’ Finale

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?

Did you love Rihanna’s performance on The Voice tonight, HollywoodLifers?

Kai made a GREAT comment. This woman has truly shown how much she has grown over the past few years. I was never much of a fan before but this girl has showed her vocal ability and performance skills. GREAT GREAT performance! She is clearly talented. So here’s the problem I have and I hope by some off chance Riri and Chris and Kae for that matter reads this comment. When you have done what Ri has done the past couple of months with number one song for the first time in US and as usual over seas AND commanded to perform on so many shows such as the Voice, SNL, Victoria Secret’s Fashion Show, X Factor UK AND being on the cover as a legitimate model on magazines like Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Esquire, GQ AND being slated as one of the sexiest women AND getting movie deals with “A” list actors AND having successful tours AND launching successful perfume line AND getting ready to get into the TV business with new fashion reality show called “Styled to Rock” AND being interveiwed by greats like Oprah and being one of the most coveted interviews AND having her own bank account AND businessess AND property AND talent AND beauty then doesnt anyone question why Chris is STILL torn or goin between her and Kae who HAS NONE OF THE ABOVE!!!!! Think about this logically and I”m not defending Kae or going against RiRi but as a woman those are questions she should be asking herself. Plus, she has all of this history and memories with Chris and her time still doesn’t beat Kae’s time. This is how you know something is wrong and maybe you should put closure on the relationship and like Kai said in her comment below just let Chris the dirt bag be with Kae. They are on the same level. Perhaps there is something that is too strong and accomplished about Riri. It’s true that stronger and more accomplished women have a harder time finding men. Kae is easy and not a challenge. She seems nice enough and accommodating enough but she also seems very opposite of Ri. Ri seems strong and determined. I think it’s the two types and maybe not the two women that Chris is torn between. It’s all about knowing your compatibility and who you are equally yoked with. So many women waste time on guys who are too insecure to be with them. Even more than this is Riri each time she is with Chris and getting in the triangle with Kae and Chris then she is adding legitamacy to a basic b—tch. So if I were Kae I would say she is all that but I’m still dating the guy that’s dating Riri! So Kae gets automatic props just by being in the cirlce. Riri has to totally disown Chris which is the only way she can cut this triangle out. Otherwise Riri is allowing herself to be brought down on a level of just some basic, random chick who aint even like the rest of us on this site b/c at least most of us got jobs. Ri is a growing young woman who has made mistakes but she doesn’t realize she is in a better position than Chris and Kae. For the sake of God why can’t Ri see this. If she’s not careful she will allow them to pigeon off of her name and fame and talent. By Ri tolerating Chris’ little boy ways she is giving him relevance and by giving him relevance she is giving Kae relevance. I mean people usually don’t argue with their underlings. Why can’t Ri see this. She needs to FLY ABOVE the haters and the hanger ons. If Chris want women in his cirlce that want to come up off a jump off then why is Ri getting in that same circle. Her love for him will cause her to lose out. This is what women should know….when it’s time to leave. Don’t wait until it’s too late. Your fans are pleading with you Ri. You are someone we see going thru what many of us have gone thru which is why we relate. We all have had a guy like Chris that’s messing with us and the other girl. And notice the other girl will never leave b/c she’s not vested the way you are. Don’t be that girl Ri-PLEASE save yourself and your future! We’ve all had to let go of someone who was a true love. You can find someone else who will love and respect you. Trust me there is someone better for you. He could even be the next new mega star not even discovered yet or someone who is not a star but a good person . Time. Time. Time. Time is precious and you don’t want to waste it on someone who is not respecting and loving you the way they should.

It is over for these two. Riri benefited from the incident. They were suppose to do it together. Now forever separated and divorced.

Rihanna is just so beautiful and talented. She needs to dump that Dirt Bag Chris Brown. Let him have that little twit Karrueche Tran. Little minds deserve to be with little people. They deserve each other. Rihanna needs to find her someone who will treat her like the queen she deserves to be treated like.

Rihanna deserves to ve treatted like a queen?? I doubt so. Granted, she’s atractive and a competent musician and performer, but she’s a total twit herself!

Well if you think she needs to find a gentlman you’re deluded. She’s no paragon of virtue herself.

It was OVERWHELMING! I was thoroughly enthralled, and I even peed a little.
