'Where Have You Been' SNL Performance: http://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/video/rihanna-where-have-you-been/1400066
Rihanna performs three elaborate songs on 'SNL' this weekend, and of course it comes with a little controversy. Hey guys, you're tuned in to ClevverMusic. Rihanna did an epic performance of 'Birthday Cake' and mashed with 'Talk That Talk' on 'Saturday Night Live' this weekend. She also performed 'Where Have You Been,' in one of the most visual stimulating sets SNL has ever seen.
The 'Battleship' actress didn't do any acting on the show, but her elaborate stage setup gave the audience a unique visual spectacle usually not seen in an SNL performance. The 'Birthday Cake' and 'Talk That Talk' performance comprised of a spider web-like backdrop, Rihanna dressed as a human-spider herself, and lasers lights to go with it.
The 'Where Have You Been' performance was complete with drummers, an array of backup dancers, in an Arabian-themed setup. These performances were extremely elaborate for the show, which implies a lot of work went into creating them. Sources say that RiRi called in sick to dress rehearsal, which pissed off the producers. Further, RiRi didn't appear sick when she performed, and the staff claimed they can't remember anyone ever missing dress rehearsal.
