    This season, Rihanna has been blessing The Voice contestants with her presence and skill. As a member the Navy, I’m a little embarrassed to say that I have not been keeping up, but have had more than one friend text me saying she’s “slaying.” I was not prepared for this level of slay-age, though.

    Most recently, Rihanna coached 15-year-old Siahna Im on Amy Winehouse’s dark crooner “Back to Black.” As someone who has regrettably made the choice to sing this song at a karaoke night in the West Village and wound up swaying on stage the entire time, I can confirm that Rih did a solid job. (Others might use this Vine to say otherwise, but don’t listen to those haters.) We’ve haven’t had a chance to hear Rihanna sans backing track in a while. Anti might (possibly) be getting pushed back, but at least we have this rihminder that there is a singer still living inside the Bad Gal. Plus, her coaching paid off, because Im slayed her official performance. Nice job, Coach Fenty.
