Did Eminem and Rihanna nail their live performance of "Monster," or what? The duo sounded amazing (natch) on the MTV Movie Awards stage, but they also totally brought it in the fashion department. TBH, we let out a little collective squeal of delight when we saw that they decided to mimic their musical chemistry with matching satin bomber jackets—just as besties should! The sheen on Eminem's olive number gave it a polished finish, and Rih was his perfect counterpoint in white.

In case you missed the news: Rihanna and Eminem are performing at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards. Yep, in five days the duo will perform "The Monster" for the first time live ever. (EVER!!!) Sunday will mark the first time they've been reunited on stage in three years, but it definitely won't be the first time Em and Rih have performed together—in 2010 and 2011 they performed "Love the Way You Lie" a handful of times at various tour dates and awards shows, including the 2010 VMAs. *hair flip*

In honor of their performance (and to make the time between now and Sunday as Rihanna and Eminem-filled as possible), we figured we'd take a look back at their past performance style. Leggo!

2010 LAST GIRL ON EARTH TOUR

One of the first times they sang together live was at Rihanna's 2010 Last Girl on Earth tour, where Rih had her short red 'do and wore a one-shoulder jumpsuit made from, essentially, straps. Maybe she'll break it out for the Movie Awards? We wouldn't mind seeing that shoulder cage again, TBH.

2010 MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS

Later that summer, they teamed up at the 2010 VMAs, with Em in head-to-toe black with a white tee and Rih in a Madonna "Like A Virgin"-inspired tulle skirt and bra. Rih's red hair was longer, and she accessorized with a Jennifer Behr crystal headwrap. It's one of her best looks, IMHO.

Eminem's "Rap God" video is on its way! Em released a teaser for the video and he's wearing...a suit? Like, I think the last time Eminem wore a suit was in the "Without Me" video when he was playing a game show host? Dude doesn't wear suits, so we're going to cherish seeing him in a jacket, even if it is extremely shiny. His sunglasses are likely in place to shield his eyes from the sheen coming off that suit.

Thirteen years ago, Eminem released The Marshall Mathers LP and the world was formally introduced to the ~real~ Slim Shady: crisp white tees, baggy jeans, a ton of du-rags and a platinum blonde buzz-cut. OK, so the really real Slim Shady (aka: Marshall Mathers), is actually a natural brunette—but Em’s blonde locks quickly became synonymous with his rap persona during his breakthrough era. In fact, Em kept bleaching his hair through 2009, when he reemerged from a short hiatus with Relapse, his sixth studio album, and first debuted his dark, natural color.

At that point, he’d also kicked a few bad habits, beefed up his physique and sharpened his style game: he traded du-rags for military caps and beanies and swapped saggy tracksuits for leather bombers—but that was just the beginning of the evolution of Marshall Mathers. Flash forward to last May, when Em announced he was working on a new album. That album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2, was released today and is a sequel to his eponymous 2000 EP. Em went back to blonde for MMLP2 and told Rolling Stone in an upcoming cover story that he credits his manager for the throwback 'do idea.

"And once the songs started to come together and the picture got a little more clear of what it was gonna be, [my manager] hit me with the idea and I was like ‘Yo, you know I thought about that, right?’ And he was like, ‘Well you know, why not?’ And I was like ‘I don’t know how it’s gonna look. I haven’t had it in how many f****** years? Five, six years.’ I was like, ‘I’m so used to it being dark,’ you know. So I just tried it. And I was like ‘F*** it.’”

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
