Watch Rihanna Perform ‘Diamonds,’ ‘Pour It Up’ + More With a Full Orchestra [VIDEOS]by Michelle McGahan | PopCrush
If you thought Rihanna couldn’t get any more badass than she already is, well, just wait until you see her performing with her hits backed by a full orchestra.
While everyone is talking about her epic performance of ‘Pour It Up’ — during which she literally conducts her own orchestra like the queen that she is — we have to note that Rihanna also performed orchestral versions of ‘Diamonds,’ ‘Umbrella’ and ‘Run This Town.’ Um, what? We can’t even handle the cray.
RiRi performed her hits at the Diamond Ball in L.A. last night (Dec. 11), a black-tie benefit for the Clara Lionel Foundation, which she started in memory of her grandparents. And Rihanna kept in line with the classiness of the event, belting out seriously kickass versions of our favorite songs, all while adding an element of elegance and importance with the full orchestra.
Watch Rihanna perform ‘Diamonds’ in the video above, and see her perform ‘Umbrella,’ ‘Run This Town,’ and yes, even conduct the orchestra in ‘Pour It Up,’ below!
