Hold On: Rihanna Was in a Destiny's Child Tribute Band?

The team over at Noisey are giving into their nostalgic impulses this week by celebrating the madness that was 2005. They're unearthing some cool stuff, but nothing comes close to discovering (remembering?) that our queen Rihanna was in a Destiny's Child tribute band for a hot second. It was before "Pon De Replay" exploded, and our girl was just a teen. Got that?

In the above vid, we see RiRi do her best Kelly Rowland alongside Teairra Mari and Amerie. 

It was the World Music Awards, and it was created to honor Destiny's Child. The trio watched on as Ri belted out "Lose My Breath." It's truly a sight to be seen. Thank you, 2005. You were messy.

When you've finished watching the marvelous vid, click through our list of the 16 wildest fan attacks caught on camera. It's a less glamorous side of Ri, for sure.
