Rihanna made her fourth appearance on Saturday Night Live tonight, this time in support of her seventh studio album Unapologetic. The best way to describe the performance? Lots of green screen and graphics straight out of Encarta 95. The result? A visually cringe worthy experience, especially when her band got lost amidst random ass imagery of parallelograms, Roman columns, the ocean, and of course, diamonds. So perhaps she forgot to tell the band not to wear white, but at least Rihanna sounded good performing “Diamonds” and fortunately she went back to a standard black backdrop for “Stay”. Watch both replays below.

Unapologetic hits stores November 19th via Def Jam. Earlier this week, Rihanna released the official video for “Diamonds” and you can watch it here.

I didn’t like her performance of ‘Diamonds’. I thought the green-screen nonsense
was annoying. I loved her song ‘Stay’ though. I was working late at DISH the
other night, so I was unable to see it when it aired. A while ago, I set up my
Hopper from DISH to automatically record the show so I could watch it when I
got a chance. Its nice being able to have the entire season on my DVR with more
than enough recording space left. I’m sure that she will be the musical guest
again in the future, and I am really excited for Maroon 5 this weekend!
