Rihanna was set to perform her single, “Kiss Me Better” and even rehearsed the number twice.

A source close to the production tells TMZ that a doctor advised she cancel the performance as it “could permanently damage her vocal cords.” Since the news hit, a source close to TMZ says the singer has left the ceremony to go home and rest.
