Rihanna Performance At AMAs — RiRi Sings ‘Diamonds’
Rihanna has shown us time and time again what an amazing live performer she is — and tonight was no exception. The performance opened with a visually stunning view of Rihanna’s silhouette against a bright spotlight as she emerged from the darkness.
Rihanna poured her heart and soul into the raw, high-energy performance, swaying seductively to the verses and belting out the chorus like she meant it. We think this was one of her most powerful performances yet!
Of course, RiRi looked absolutely stunning in a black floor-length gown with a plunging neckline, which she accessorized with a thick pearl choker. It was the perfect look for her dark, sexy performance!
