LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - One day after pulling out of a benefit concert citing illness, Rihanna was spotted on Friday in rehearsals for the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards and is apparently still on for the big show.

Representatives for Rihanna and the Grammys could not immediately be reached for comment, but the "Umbrella" singer Tweeted that she would be rehearsing despite suffering from bronchitis.

"Bronchitis and laryngitis boo! I'm still goin to rehearsals tho! Sunday is everything," she said in the Tweet.

An official Twitter feed for the Grammys also reported that Rihanna was rehearsing.

The pop star pulled out of a Thursday night performance benefiting the Women's Cancer Research Fund, citing the flu, USA Today reported. Singer Cee Lo Green took her place.
