Rihanna took her new pixie cut to dinner at her favorite restaurant, Giorgio Baldi, just days after it was announced that the "S&M" singer would be returning to the Idol stage later this week.
She'll be performing a song off her new album Thursday night during the results show, where the first American Idol, Kelly Clarkson, will also be taking the stage.
If this performance is anything like her last year's appearance on the show singing "Rockstar 101", you know it'll be hot!
