Rihanna Performs ‘Birthday Cake’ ‘WHYB’ & More On ‘SNL’

Published On May 6, 2012 | Celebrities, Music News, Television

A few hours ago, Rihanna returned to the ‘Saturday Night Live’ stage as the musical guest alongside host Eli Manning. Dressed in all black to compliment her new edgy hair, the songstress made her ‘SNL’ stage return with a bang performing ‘Birthday Cake,’ ‘Talk That Talk’ and ‘Where Have You Been.’

Her first set was the ballad of ‘Birthday Cake’ and ‘Talk That Talk’ but before we even get to that, let’s just say that we’ve been waiting FOREVER to see her perform ‘Birthday Cake’ live and the only thing missing from the choreography was a few seconds of twerking.

Bringing the usual sexual atmosphere with her onto the stage, Rih kicked off the track working her waist before she began to pat her “cake” over and over while teasing the men watching worldwide with what they would never get. She then hopped over to ‘Talk That Talk,’ which showed a slight change in choreography since her debut performance of the track on the Jonathan Ross Show a while back. Nevertheless, she delivered an enticing performance as always.

She returned to the stage for a second performance, this time wowing the crowd with ‘Where Have You Been,’ which was accompanied by all of the fancy footwork that we witnessed in the video for the extreme dance track.

She ditched the cap, shorts and thigh high boots for the performance and switched them for a skirt and boots. The performance opened with an Egyptian theme as Ri was seen lying on a lounge chair surrounded by dancers in Egyptian garbs and scarves hiding their faces. When she laid down the vocals, they all burst into action executing the same choreography to that of the video.
