The iHeart Radio Music Awards was filled with performances last night from various artists. One of those artists was Ariana Grande and while her performance was entertaining and, as usual her vocals were great, some other celebrities did not seem to agree.
She sang her first hit single “The Way” and then transitioned into her newest song, “Problem.”
Rihanna was shown on camera a few times. The first time she was shown (2:47) she was nodding her head along with the music and, although she was expressionless, seemed to be enjoying it.
The second time the camera panned to her was after Grande started dancing in her tiny black sequin dress with knee-high white go-go boots. Rihanna seemed to be fascinated, and maybe second-hand embarrassed for her (3:05). She covered her mouth and started to laugh. But by the end of the performance she smiled and clapped for the singer.
The singer was not the only celeb in that room unamused with the performance. Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan were both shown staring at the stage with sour looks on their faces (3:22).
Bryan later poked fun at himself and tweeted, “Wow me concentrating doesn’t look good.” He even changed his Twitter header to the picture.
The song “Problem” featuring Iggy Azalea later went #1 on iTunes in less than 40 minutes, a record previously held by Taylor Swift.
What do you think of the famous faces?
