VIDEOS: Rihanna Rocks The "SNL" Stage With "Cake", "Talk That Talk" & "Where Have You Been"

Rihanna was LIVE from New York Saturday night as she returned to the "SNL" stage for the third time.  Check out videos of her performances inside...

Rihanna, who tweeted Happy Birthday to her ex Chris Brown earlier in the day, was spotted leaving her hotel to head to her big "SNL" appearance Saturday night.  And her fab promo pics flashed throughout the show:

Acting as the evening's musical guest alongside Superbowl champ host Eli Manning, pop star Rihanna donned all black for 2 sets of performances.  Her Arabian nights theme was the backdrop for a "Cake/Talk That Talk" medley.  And for her second performance where she burst out some dance moves--her new single "Where Have You Been."

Check out videos in case you missed it below:

If you can look past that

If you can look past that lazy stripper moves and swisher sweet& dutch-master abused vocal cords...please watch the images being flashed behind her... these ppl are always denying their shadowy affiliations, yet they do bullshit like this. Im not surprised, but I want to point this out to those of you who find yourself worshiping these manipulative, lying, greedy, ppl. would all make much more sense to you! .... smh

How can music with so much energy be so boring???? beCause of the singer thats why...and the dancing is awkward to say the least...i guess thats Y they never really pushed her to dance....I like the songs though....

Some thick head always

Some thick head always talking about Rihanna's 15 minutes being up. Clearly you didn't do well in math because 15 minutes does not equate to 7 years in the game, 6 albums, 6 Grammy Awards, 18 Billboard Music Awards and over 25 million albums, plus 47 million singles sold (yes, 47 MILLION)...boo, she is one of the best selling artists of all time and is grossing about 29 million dollars a year. So call her the goat yodler all day, but she is light years beyond her "15 minutes" and it don't stop until SHE wants it to, OBVIOUSLY. #wetwipesincaseabumtrytotouchme #googleawikibiyotch

I am a Rihanna fan. I will

I am a Rihanna fan. I will agree both these performances were a miss to me. But to all of you haters saying her popularity is going to die out are complete JOKES. Rihanna has had the same vocal/performance ability since she first came out and is STILL one of the most paid female acts out right now. So I really can't take any of your negative criticism serious. Rihanna fans follow her for her style, image, beauty, and (enhanced) catchy songs and it has been that way for years.
Rebelle's picture

The hate you commenters have

The hate you commenters have for this girl is appalling. The performances were not bad. The second was better. Fact. If Rihanna wants to add some choreography to her performances get the entire FUCK over it. Shes the one on stage and taking home the checks. You old haggard hos need to log off the blogs and find a damn hobby.

Nope she can't sing but I like her because she is not perfect and u don't have to be the full package to still be a star! She has definitely proven that and is a star in her own wright

Sounds like she was singing

Sounds like she was singing along with the record. Not a big deal. Some of you over analyze things. Not sure what this girl do to people to make them hate her so much. She's a young lady that is still popular and blessed to have a fan base(of all races) that supports her. She is a talented young lady living her life. The way people tear her down only seems to make her stronger and proving no matter what people say about her, she will continue to live life on her terms, no one else's. Both performances were good.

Two comments about that

Two comments about that second performance. First, who choreographed that wack shyt!!?!? Second, someone in that group wasn't hitting their marks/off beat. I have reason to believe it was Re-re's ass. Can someone, anyone, but her ass out of commission!? Please!? Someone who can sing? Rita Ora?! Bring Beyonce's ass back! Sheesh....someone!!!

"The Avengers" just cleared

"The Avengers" just cleared the $500-Million mark. In the fight for "consumer-discretionary movie-goer" dollars that's NOT good news for "Battleship". Matter of a fact, "Battleship" just declined -68% - the first week 'Avengers' was released. "And how does this all relate to Rihanna," you now ask? ..Well, like it or not, Rihanna is T-H-E "face of Battleship", and as it now sinks, it takes her 'brand' along with it to the cold, crushing, dark depths! X,Y,"and Z"

STFU U moronic, asinine

STFU U moronic, asinine ,imbecile, Battleship has done extremely well in Europe being # 1 in almost every country and in Australia. You are so full of shyte and always end up making a damn fool of yourself. And Its not Rihanna's movie u ignorant inbreed. Honestly you have been at this for 6 fucking years and while Rihanna has gotten more famous and richer and you have become more bitter and irrelevant. Go somewhere and just die already u crab louse.

She's a singer.. but she doesn't deliver vocally. I mean.. people use this excuse "she's an entertainer".. yes she is.. but if you're going to perform a song, make sure your vocals are on point, it's your career! You SING for a living! She's a single's artist.. but the minute her looks fade, so will her huge fame.

Watching that Cake/Talk that

Watching that Cake/Talk that Talk performance had me giving her a little side-eye, but WHYB was actually pretty good. She's okay in my book, just gotta know to expect from her. She's definitely not a powerhouse but you must admit she has fun catch ass songs!

All of y'all hating and the bitch still doing her thing, I am sorry but Rihanna ain't the only one that sounds less than stellar live, Ashanti just perform on Kelly and Regis and sounded awful, Kelly Rowland sounded awful on her tonight show performance and Chris Brown does not sound good live either people are mesmerized by his dancing and seems to forget that he does not have the best voice either. But you desperate ho's will give him a pass cus he is cute and has a dick.
