Rihanna Rocks A New Look During American Idol Finale Performance!

| Filed under: RihannaMusic MinuteAmerican Idol

Just when we think we've seen it all from Rihanna, she goes and pulls the rug right out from underneath us!

The pop star took her latest single from Talk That Talk, the Calvin Harris and Dr. Luke-produced Where Have You Been, to the American Idol stage last night for a special, season finale performance, and although she didn't switch up the color of her recently dyed back-to-black locks, she may have well have, because she was rocking some seriously FEROSH dreadlocks!

Ch-ch-check her out (above)!

WOW! We LOVE it!

A true Princess Of China Hollywood!

Looking great, gurl!

And SOUNDING even better!

    Of course she got a new look: She's retarded and narcissistic and relies on looking like a whore to make up for her lack of talent.
    And dreadlocks are repulsive and ugly. Fake like hers or real.

    Rihanna is my sweet darling… <a href=" you</a>

    I don't see what the big fuss is about this "performance" she still didn't impress me perez.. Ok she danced a little.. Hopping around in one spot is dancing now? Lol About time right ? Her vocals are still babyish. People like rihanna needs to sell sex and Rock new looks every month to stay relevent in the industry.. To make up for her lack of talent.. We all know she can't sing.

    Re: Harron – She can sing. Only about 4 notes, but she sings those pretty good. And those 4 notes go well with the 6 dance moves that she can do, and her one facial expression (blank). Good thing she has great back up dancers, flashing lights and shows lots of skin to distract people.

    Re: Harron – I agree Harron, do not get the Rihanna love people show her, I do not see any talent other than being truly beautiful, I will give her that

    That was by far the best live performance she's done in her entire career. I don't think she's the greatest performer live, but she puts so much energy into her work, and she out did herself. She sounded great, looked fantastic and I love her dancing for this song. She's no Beyonce, Pink or Adele live, but she did fantastically.

    she can't dance and that song is not single material. it's pretty sad. the fact is is that this like katy's performance is totally forgettable. can you imagine people looking this up on youtube for inspiration????? no. sad. and i actually love riri.

    She desperately needs to go to rehab, but yet again, for no logical reason, you praise her. Maybe if everyone stoppedv giving her attention she would work on saving herself.

    Don't be a hater Riri was bad last night her whole performance was off the chain so check yourself and see if you can move like that or sing like that. Shes beautiful and she look like and angel. She's rising to the top everytime you talk about her she goes higher people. So shes still special we need to stop being so mean and check yourself and see if something is wrong with you because nobody is perfect no me and you either. Lets show love in 2012 America…..Two many are dying because of our mouth…

    The media is the problem, how is having dreadlocks a new look, that has been out for years. The only reason why Rihanna is known is because of her looks sure she has good beats but you could only either watch the video or listen to the album because it is autotuned. She can't sing or even dance, the crazy thing is she had combats and still couldn't dance or keep up with her singing she kept stopping her singing to catch up with her backup dancers. Kat Graham is a perfect example of talented artist that needs to be known.

    Re: BI*7 – Perez, is that you??? lol

  13. 13

    I thought she looked good…as she always does…she's beautiful, but I think she did great too..she sings live, you gotta give her that, and she dances too…she puts effort into it…much more than a lot of people these days…

  14. 14

    She sang live, danced and put on an interesting show. A- or B+

    Rihanna did great. Performance was cool. Loved the SNL performance better where she really slayed.

    she sucks. pathetic.

    Firstly, where's the love at? So what if Rihanna has chosen to rock dreads, surely everyone is allowed a new style as and when they want it. And quite frankly, I am actually a fan of dreadlocks and think they suit her.

    Secondly, I don't see you guys up there singing and dancing.. Why are you all hating for? You do know that jealousy is a bad disease so you need to get well soon!

    Thirdly, get over yourselves. Rihanna is a pop star and yes, her drug use, risqué clothing and performances isnt exactly the "role model" look, but who says she's trying to be? Remember? She's still a human being and has JUST as many rights if not more to DO, BE and ACT however she likes.

    Get a dayjob.

    You can tell she sniffed about 3 lines backstage. Look at her.

    Re: FatAzzPooHeadDoodle – I hate this song so much and i also LOVE her…
    Why does she do these two step dance moves? let Britney pull some shit like that motherfuckers would DESTROY her for it

  20. 20

    This performance sucked. She cannot dance for her life. Her dancing was so awkward. Plus, she can't sing. I don't get how she was out of breath towards the end, when she didn't dance much.

  21. 21

    i like riri but that was bad. I like the dancing but i had to stop because her vocals were horrible. I like her music but at the same time i know its not that deep (aka real music its a lot of club stuff , something you listen to when u r about to go out) . She stop singing some of the words and i wish she just allow the back track to sing for her. she needs vocal support

    Re: it-is-what-it-is – Hell no! I just like Kat Graham. I am entitled to my own opinion as well as you.

  23. 23

    Awful. Try LP "Into the Wild"

  24. 24

    Rihanna slayed that shit and put in 200%. That's the way a bad bitch should do. Show the contestants what it takes to put on a show and get the crowd going. That was easily the biggest performance in American Idol's entire history! These lesser whores are on here pressed because they can't stand to see a bitch as bad as Rihanna bury their fave effortlessly. On her articles, the comment button should be changed to say "click to hate." Go RiRi!!!

    Anybody else think she looked like Left Eye?

    Re: BI*7 – I dont know what you listen too , but rihanna does not sing auto tune.

  27. BI*7 says – reply to this


    Re: BajanGirl – I listen to a lot of music thank you but when Rihanna sings live her voice sounds terrible. I always thought she had great beats but she can't sing them live nor dance. I am going to be opinionated if I want to be opinionated and I am not the only one saying she can't sing or dance.

    I love me some RIRI, she is one of my favorite singers! but when she performer's live she kinda sucks!! When she is just standing there she is fine but as soon as she starts dancing it's kinda sad!!! But I still love her!
