Sorry for the delay, I was hoping for some more votes. I'll start the results today!

Here's a reminder of the questions:

1. A Rihanna single that's been certified gold or more in the UK
2. A contestant on any X Factor that has performed a Rihanna song while on the show
3. A film or TV show Rihanna has appeared in where she appears as herself
4. Any song which finished in the top 20 of the Rih forum collaborations rate
5. A Fenty Beauty product in Rihanna's official favourites list on the FB website
6. A song sang on the ANTI world tour
7. A popstar Rihanna has shaded
8. Anyone who has ever been a Rihanna forum moderator
9. An artist who has named Rihanna as an influence
10. A nationwide public holiday in Rihanna's home country of Barbados

Thank you to those who have entered! First answer coming up but feel free to predict biggrin.gif

1. A Rihanna single that's been certified Gold or more in the UK



1 point - "Diamonds" (Dobbo and HarryEzra)
1 point - "Where Have You Been" (THEO. and Josh!)

Pointless - "Stay" (UltraReputation)
Pointless - "What's My Name?" (Mack)
Pointless - "Who's That Chick?" (SamJudd)
Pointless - "Live Your Life" (Andrew.)

Incorrect (9 points) - "SOS" (Tyler)

First question up and we already have four Pointless answers! Rihanna is no stranger to Gold-certified singles, with 28 and counting in the UK. The most popular answers were "Diamonds" and "Where Have You Been", whilst unfortunately for Tyler he goes for a song that is only certified Silver.

2. A contestant on any X Factor that has performed a Rihanna song while on the show



3 points - Matt Cardle (UltraReputation, THEO., Mack and Josh!)

Pointless - One Direction (Dobbo)
Pointless - Jack Walton (HarryEzra)
Pointless - Carlito Olivero (Tyler)
Pointless - Marcus Collins (SamJudd)
Pointless - Georgina Panton (Andrew.)

The only answer to pop up more than once here is Matt Cardle, who infamously dueted with Rihanna on her song "Unfaithful" during the final of The X Factor 2010, with four members saying him. Tyler sees a loophole by going for Carlito Olivero from The X Factor USA, who sung "Stay" as his audition song and Andrew goes for one of this year's contestants, Georgina, who performed two Rihanna songs before being sent home at the Judges' Houses stage.

I was going to go for that Georgina girl after seeing Love On the Brain get an iTunes boost following the performance but decided Matt Cardle was a bit older so a bit less remembered, oops... sad.gif

3. A film or TV show Rihanna has appeared in where she appears as herself



2 points - Katy Perry: Part of Me (THEO., Josh! and Andrew.)

1 point - This Is the End (UltraReputation and Tyler)

Pointless - The X Factor (Dobbo)
Pointless - Punk'd (HarryEzra)
Pointless - America's Best Dance Crew (Mack)
Pointless - Styled to Rock (SamJudd)

Katy Perry's documentary following her 'California Dreams' Tour, featuring a cameo from Rihanna, gets the most points here. Dobbo succesfully double-bluffs, using the TV programme from the previous question for his answer here.

4. Any song which finished in the top 20 of the Rih forum collaborations rate



Pointless - "Live Your Life" (UltraReputation)
Pointless - "We Found Love" (Dobbo)
Pointless - "Princess of China" (HarryEzra)
Pointless - "Can't Remember to Forget You" (Mack)
Pointless - "Umbrella" (Tyler)
Pointless - "Rehab" (SamJudd)
Pointless - "Love the Way You Lie" (Josh!)
Pointless - "FourFiveSeconds" (Andrew.)

Incorrect (9 points) - "Too Good" (THEO.)



You get a pointless! You get a pointless! You all get a pointless!

Except for me, somehow. I just guessed a collaboration that I thought would be obscure enough to be pointless and it turns out it missed the top 20 in our recent rate, placing 22nd. Well done to everyone else for picking eight different songs out of the top twenty!

5. A Fenty Beauty product in Rihanna's official favourites list on the FB website



1 point - Match Stix (UltraReputation and Mack)
1 point - Gloss Bomb (THEO. and SamJudd)

Pointless - Pro Filt'r (Josh!)
Pointless - Invisimatte (Andrew.)

Incorrect (9 points) - Fenty Fragrance (Dobbo)
Incorrect (9 points) - Shimmer Skinstick (HarryEzra)
Incorrect (9 points) - The foundation that matches any skin tone (Tyler)

This is one of a few questions where I struggled to say what was correct, although the homepage of Fenty Beauty does list six specific products under the 'Rihanna's faves' header - and three of the answers given were not listed. This was one of three questions to only have two Pointless answers, although there were a further two products that weren't said here that would have been Pointless.

6. A song sang on the ANTI world tour



1 point - "Sex with Me" (THEO. and Josh!)

Pointless - "Consideration" (UltraReputation)
Pointless - "Work" (Dobbo)
Pointless - "Love the Way You Lie, Part II" (HarryEzra)
Pointless - "Needed Me" (Mack)
Pointless - "Desperado" (Tyler)
Pointless - "Diamonds" (SamJudd)
Pointless - "Birthday Cake" (Andrew.)

Only one song is mentioned here more than once, with the incredible "Sex with Me" featuring the iconic 'you know I got the sauce' line being given as an answer by Josh and myself. SamJudd goes for one of my favourite performances from the tour, "Diamonds", one of seven Pointless answers.

7. A popstar Rihanna has shaded



2 points - Ciara (UltraReputation, Mack and Josh!)

1 point - Taylor Swift (Dobbo and THEO.)
1 point - Katy Perry (SamJudd and Andrew.)

Pointless - Ariana Grande (HarryEzra)
Pointless - Chris Brown (Tyler)

So I don't know much about the Rihanna and Ciara beef but a quick Google tells me it's something to do with Rih's song "Loveeeeeee Song" which features Future, Ciara's ex and baby-daddy? Taylor Swift and Katy Perry also pick up a couple of points here, despite the latter seeming to be a good friend of Rihanna's during the early 10s.

The best answer has to go to HarryEzra who said Ariana Grande, which occurred before her 'My Everything' era and explosion into being one of pop's biggest girls, after Rih laughed during her set at an awards ceremony. Tyler also gets a Pointless answer here.

8. Anyone who has ever been a Rihanna forum moderator



2 points - Andrew (Dobbo, Mack and Tyler)

1 point - Tim (UltraReputation and HarryEzra)
1 point - Jack (THEO. and Andrew.)

Pointless - Theo (SamJudd)
Pointless - AdamAloud (Josh!)

Recent departee from the Rihanna forum moderating team Andrew scores the most points here, with some players thinking it would be a double-bluff as he originally hosted this round! Resident JoJo stan (lol) Jack and ex-Pop forum moderator Tim also points score here.

9. An artist who has named Rihanna as an influence



1 point - Zara Larsson (THEO. and Andrew.)

Pointless - Dua Lipa (Tyler)
Pointless - Maggie Lindemann (SamJudd)

Incorrect (9 points) - Madonna (UltraReputation and Mack)
Incorrect (9 points) - Shontelle (Dobbo)
Incorrect (9 points) - Janet Jackson (HarryEzra)
Incorrect (9 points) - Adele (Josh!)

So this was a bit of a mess... I think some members possibly misunderstood the question (Sam, Mack and Harry) by naming artists that Rihanna herself is influenced by. I can't really say Dobbo's answer is right as Shontelle and Rihanna are peers, coming from the same background and generation, with Adele also coming from the same generation, hence Josh's incorrect answer here.

In terms of correct answers, we are very sparse! All three artists have covered Rihanna songs at one or more point, with many (myself included) originally thinking that Zara's voice was similar to our Bajan Queen's.

10. A nationwide public holiday in Rihanna's home country of Barbados



2 points - Errol Barrow Day (Mack, Josh! and Andrew.)

1 point - Christmas Day (THEO. and Tyler)

Pointless - National Heroes' Day (UltraReputation)
Pointless - Independence Day (Dobbo)
Pointless - Whit Monday (HarryEzra)
Pointless - Kadooment Day (SamJudd)

So onto our final question and with only twelve correct answers (that's four more holidays than the UK), half of them are mentioned here. The most popular is Errol Barrow Day which falls annually on the 21st of January and is in recognition of the first Prime Minister of Barbados. Six of the nation's public holidays are shared with the UK but only one is mentioned here which is of course Christmas Day.

In reverse order (because why not?!)



=8. Dobbo - 22 points
=8. Tyler - 22 points

7. THEO. - 21 points

=5. HarryEzra - 20 points
=5. Josh! - 20 points

4. Mack - 19 points

3. UltraReputation - 17 points



The top two were way ahead of the rest of the leaderboard, due to neither of them receiving penalty points...



2. Andrew. - 7 points

1. SamJudd - 2 points

Congratulations, Sam! cheer.gif Achieving a whopping eight Pointless answers, that's a really impressive score!

Thanks all for taking part and commenting!

Just because they come from the same background doesn't mean one can't be an influence to the other, no?

Thanks for getting these results out though, always a fun read!

I guess not? I can edit the results if you have a link saying that she influenced her? tongue.gif Idk, I found it difficult to score as I didn't write the questions.
