In addition to new Zac Efron shirtless moments to add to an impressive canon, this year’s show is all about letting us know what we should get hyped about this summer. And like the first looks at upcoming films The Fault In Our Stars and Spider-Man 2, Eminem and Rihanna were nice enough to stop by and give us a sneak peek at their co-headlining stadium tour.
The two are old pros at big-time live performances, having previously collaborated on “Love The Way You Lie,” but tonight was the first time they took “The Monster” to the stage. RiRi traded in her lingerie-like red carpet ensemble for a sportier look, with combat boots helping to contradict the message her massive “FEAR” headband was sending. In case you had any doubt, Rihanna is not someone we’d want to mess with on stage, in a dark alley or in the comments section of an Instagram photo. After emerging from clouds of smoke, Eminem made his way towards his hook girl, punishing each syllable every step of the way. Still, while the Detroit star has made a career off of his intensity, tonight RiRi was anything but scared, giving Em’s patented Crazy Eyes some serious competition. The bigger question: Did she make Drake proud? Definitely.
Once reunited centerstage the pair dove into some stomp-fighting, making all those with tickets to their tour that much more excited for a potential dance-off.
