Mother of one and already pregnant Rihanna stunned the audience at the 95th Academy Awards which took place on Sunday night as she performed “Lift Me Up” for the first time.
Rihanna, who took a hiatus from music to focus on her other businesses has returned with a banger and brought the Dolby Theatre to a stand still on Sunday night as she performed “Lift Me Up” from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” for the first time live at the 95th Academy Awards on Sunday night, March 12.
The song which received an Oscar nomination lost to “Naatu Naatu” “RRR”. Other nominees were “Applause” from “Tell It Like A Woman”, Hold My Hand” from “Top Gun: Maverick” and “This is a Life” from “Everything Everywhere All At Once”.
Despite losing out on the trophy, Rihanna definitely left her mark on the night as she hit the stage in a Maison Margiela Artisanal look which was created by John Galliano purposely for her.
And one thing that was very visible were the diamonds on her costume and of course her growing baby bump.
Check out her performance below as A$AP Rocky watches on admiring her performance and cheering her on.
