Watch Rihanna’s Performance On “The X Factor” Last Night
Posted by Videoson 11/18/2011 at 12:09 PM
Here’s a little matchmaking session between people who read this site for The X Factor coverage (here) and those who follow the Rihanna coverage (here, plus user guide!) Our full recap’s up soon, but in the meantime: Rihanna went on the show last night with “We Found Love” and a lot of neon lights about love and hopeless places and the like. We’d be remiss in our duties if we didn’t point out that, um, well, there are a few points in this song where Rihanna is obviously, unapologetically lip-synching (there’s outside corroboration on this, people, we’re not just snarking. It’s standard for The X Factor and similar shows, she just flew in from tour, she’s dancing quite a bit; it just makes sense.) The staging’s interesting, though. Who knew everyone would mosh?
