Rihanna - Rihanna Overcomes Sickness For Grammys Performance

RIHANNA fought off a bad bout of laryngitis and bronchitis just in time for the Grammy Awards on Sunday night (13Feb11), hitting the stage to perform twice during the 2011 ceremony.
The R&B beauty was left with a sore throat as she battled influenza last week (begs07Feb11), forcing her to scrap a gig at a charity fundraiser in Los Angeles on Thursday (10Feb11) in order to rest her voice.
But the cancellation paid off - despite sounding slightly husky in her red carpet interviews at the Grammys, Rihanna showed she had beaten the illness as she sang a stripped-down version of Love The Way You Lie (Part 2), her collaboration with Eminem, backed by Maroon 5's Adam Levine on a grand piano.
She stepped into the spotlight again later on in the prizegiving for a sexy performance of What's My Name? with Drake, complete with her own indoor bonfire.
And regaining her voice wasn't the only reason Rihanna had to celebrate - she also took home the Grammy for Best Dance Recording for Only Girl (In The World).
