Throwback Thursday: Rihanna performs ‘Diamonds’ on X Factor UK
The fourth quarter of 2012 was full of work for Rihanna. She went on 777 Tour and prepared for ‘Unapologetic’ promotion on television. Also, the first single from the album, ‘Diamonds’ was calmly sitting atop charts all over the world. On November 25th, Rihanna delivered an unforgettable performance of the song on the X Factor UK, a show that she is always excited and happy to come back to and perform on. It was the first time she performed ‘Diamonds’ on British television. She left everyone completely stunned by her powerful voice and emotional performance which many claim to be the best ‘Diamonds’ performance or at least one of their favourites. Towards the end of the performance water started to fall from the ceiling and left Rihanna totally soaked in the end which made the performance one of the most memorable moments of her career.
Rihanna wore a dress by Stella McCartney and shoes by Manolo Blahnik for the performance. She accessorized the look with diamond earrings by Annoushka Jewellery and diamond necklace from Kentshire. Check out the photos from the performance here.
