Here’s What Rihanna’s Grammy Performance Would Have Looked Like

We were THISCLOSE to seeing an '80s-centric debut of Rih's new single.

Monday night’s Grammy Awards boasted several explosive performances from Taylor Swift, Adele, Kendrick Lamar, and more music industry heavyweights. But the sting of Rihanna’s cancelled performance was hard to shake off — especially now, when we’ve learned just how elaborate her planned segment was.

James Corden, who was set to introduce the singer, detailed what he and Rih had plotted for the performance, which would’ve marked the live debut of her smoldering ANTI highlight “Kiss It Better.”

“A couple of weeks ago, I got asked if I would introduce Rihanna on the show,” Corden explained during his post-Grammys episode of The Late Late Show. “I get this phone call saying Rihanna has this big thing planned for her song ‘Kiss It Better’ and she’s doing like a whole ’80s talk show thing and it’s going to be really cool.”
