According to TMZ, Rihanna called in sick for the dress rehearsal. Doesn’t seem like a big deal on paper, but these shows are done in front of a live audience, so this robbed them of seeing the real deal. Michaels apparently takes these rehearsals very seriously.
The site says, though Rihanna had a doctor administer penicillin in shot form before the show, she didn’t appear to be ill at all. The producers say they can’t remember a time when someone missed a dress rehearsal. Was she faking it? Let us know what you think.
