While she didn't perform in a sketch for SNL -- bummer! -- Rihanna nearly stole the show from host Eli Manning, by performing three of her newest songs during last night's show.

Riri started out with “Birthday Cake” before taking the stage once more to sing “Talk That Talk,” and later in the show, the singer closed with “Where Have You Been”.

This is the Umbrella singer gave a stunning performance before an oversized crystallized spider web in the middle of the black-lit stage, and she hinted of the possibility of an onstage reunion with birthday boy Chris Brown, in her first tune "Birthday Cake."

Riri is gearing up for her big-screen debut in the upcoming flick Battleship, which hits theaters May 18.
