While Anne Hathaway showed off her SERIOUS vocal prowess during her Saturday Night Live opening monologue - and some equally serious CRAZY during a HIGHlarious parody of Homeland - Rihanna was ALSO on hand to provide musical accompaniment for the evening!
And luckily for us, the starlet used the opportunity to debut a brand new track from her upcoming album, Unapologetic!
Ch-ch-check out Stay (above)!
WOW! It's been a long time since we've heard her tackle such a straight-up, simple ballad!
But seriously, as far as we're concerned, she's never sounded more vulnerable…and STUNNING!
Just another gorgeous step in Rihanna's ever-evolving sound! LOVE!
And feel free to watch gurlfriend once again remind us how EFFING SICK her latest single, Diamonds, is during her first live performance of the evening…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
