Rihanna’s performances are always entertaining but the singer’s vocal ability has been judged with harsh scrutiny by many throughout her career. So last night when Rihanna took the stage at the Country Music Awards, her belting set caught most people pleasantly off guard.

Performing her new single, “California King Bed,” Rihanna was joined by Sugarland star Jennifer Nettles. Those who have heard Nettles singing the bands hit song “Stay,” know that Nettles’ vocals are nothing to play with. So we were more than happy to see our favorite Bajan pop star holding her own. Sporting a cropped do, the redhead was on fire in a hot white, fringe sheath.

It’s good to see Rihanna growing vocally and looking comfortable in her own skin.
