Rihanna made it to the 2016 Brit Awards hitting the carpet in a purple Armani number. Then, she hit the stage to back it up on Drake and perform a duet with SZA. Peep her red carpet arrival flicks and performances inside….

After a cancelled performance and some delayed tour dates, Rihanna was on the scene for the 2016 BRIT Awards to rock the stage at the O2 Arena.

Folks were wondering if she would make it to the awards ceremony after she cancelled her Grammy performance at the last minute and pushed back some dates for her upcoming ANTI World Tour. There were conflicting rumors on the real issue behind it all, some claiming there were production issues while others said it was bronchitis.

Either way, she was front-and-center on the red carpet ahead of the festivities. The “BBHMM” singer sashayed down the carpet in a lavender tiered Armani Prive couture gown from the Spring 2016 collection. She topped her look off with a black, sleek bob and accessorized with Jack Vartanian diamond earrings and Casa Reale diamond bracelets and ring.

Then she hit the stage in a frilly white ensemble…

…with a special guest. Drake made a surprise appearance to get it poppin’.

RiRi put in work on Drizzy as he rapped his verses. We see she’s been working on those skills…

And the crowd loved every minute of it! The chemistry is there, but we respect them just being friends. Allegedly.

Before she rocked out with the Young Money rapper, Rih performed her ANTI-track “Consideration” with SZA and they were good. Peep the performances below:
