Rihanna blows people away with incredible Oscars performance while pregnant

Rihanna blows people away with incredible Oscars performance while pregnant

"It’s only mid March and Rihanna has had the best year ever"

Rihanna absolutely blew people away with her Oscars performance, having taken to the stage while pregnant just one month after the Super Bowl.

All eyes were on the 'Umbrella' singer as she appeared at the 95th Academy Awards tonight (13 March) at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

Donning a dazzling gown with her baby bump on show, she sang her Black Panther: Wakanda Forever track 'Lift Me Up', which was recorded as a tribute to the late MCU star Chadwick Boseman.

Hundreds of people have taken to Twitter to praise the star for her epic vocals, with one writing: "Goosebumps all over again."

"I just love Rihanna's vocals," said another, while a third added, "Didn't expect to cry watching the Oscars but here we are.

"Rihanna sounded great at these #Oscars," commented a fourth. "Loved her performance."

A fifth chimed in, "It’s only mid March and Rihanna has had the best year ever," referring to the fact that it's just been one month since the singer's Super Bowl Halftime Show performance.

She sang a medley of her biggest hits from over the years, including 'Work', 'We Found Love', 'Diamonds' 'Run This Town' and 'Wild Thoughts'.

The star sang 'Lift Me Up' from the Black Panther sequel.

And being the badass businesswoman she is, Rihanna even made time to give a shoutout to her Fenty Beauty brand in the middle of her performance.

Many viewers noticed a slight baby bump at the time, leading to speculation that she was pregnant again after giving birth to a baby boy with partner A$AP Rocky in May last year.

A representative for the 35-year-old confirmed the news shortly after to The Hollywood Reporter.

Rihanna spoke with the outlet about her concerns over taking on the big game event not too long after giving birth.

"I was like, 'You sure? I’m three months postpartum. Should I be making major decisions like this right now? I might regret this,'" she said.

"When you become a mom, there’s something that just happens where you feel like you could take on the world – you can do anything.

"And the Super Bowl is one of the biggest stages in the world, so as scary as that was... there’s something exhilarating about the challenge of it all.

"It’s important for my son to see that."

Her decision turned out to be the right one, with audiences across the world praising the star for her historic moment.

And now she can tick the Oscars off her list too.
