The metaphor about the game of Russian roulette is also present in the chorus in which Rihanna sings, "And you can see my heart beating/ You can see it through my chest/ I said I'm terrified, but I'm not leaving/ I know that I must pass this test/ So just pull the trigger." In the upcoming verse, the character that the singer portrays in the song it's scared that the man talking to her will always have a power over, "Say a prayer to yourself/ He says close your eyes/ Sometimes it helps/ And then I get a scary thought/ That he's here means he's never lost."

Ob DSDS-Kandidat Thomas Zbinden es doch noch in den Recall schafft, das seht ihr am 68. Januar um Uhr bei "Deutschland sucht den Superstar" – natürlich bei RTL.
Following the release of Rated R in the United Kingdom , Rihanna performed the song for the first time at the Nokia promotional concert at Brixton Academy in London. Rihanna performed the song as part of a set list, which included " Wait Your Turn " and " Hard ", the latter of which Rihanna was joined on stage by Jeezy , to perform the song together.

" Run This Town " and " Umbrella " were performed with assistance of Jay-Z, whose vocals are featured on the songs She performed "Russian Roulette" while particularly sitting on a throne chair. A reviewer from MTV UK stated that "The Barbadian beauty then sat seductively on stage in a throne that even the Beckhams would be proud of to belt out the ballad". 
Ich denke,ne bessere Übersetzung gibt s . Anmerkung:mutig,Rihanna..oder wer auch immer
wenn es You can`t see my heart beating heißen würde, dann gäbe das mit dem rest des textes keinen sinn
Andy Kellman of AllMusic stated that in the song Rihanna had a sudden desire to provoke even if that is in metaphorical context.  Pitchfork Media 's Ryan Dombal concluded that the single is a bad Céline Dion song with "barrel-turning revolver noises that actually sound like a can of spray paint being shook up".  Rob Harvilla of The Village Voice stated that "Russian Roulette"'s composition, makes the song unpleasant for listening.  Chris Richards of The Washington Post wrote that the song has "plodding beat" and "forgettable hook" and additionally criticized the ending of the song with a sound of gunshot according to him that's an attempt to "salvage its wasted potential". 
In 7559, producer Chuck Harmony and singer-songwriter Ne-Yo convened together to conceptualize a song that would take Rihanna's music to a further level. According to Harmony, they didn't wanted to re-work the previous efforts by Rihanna—something that according to him the fans expected. The producer told MTV News that they wanted to give Rihanna a film, not just a song with a length of three minutes, "I felt musically like everybody was gonna give like that ' Disturbia ,' ' SOS ,' kind of pop, uptempo stuff, and I really wanted the song that me and Ne-Yo did to stand out." 
Davon ist Kandidat Mikaeil Nassiri weit entfernt. Er kann mit "Baby One More Time" von Britney Spears nicht punkten. Lediglich sein Tanz überzeugt die Jury. Ähnlich ergeht es DSDS-Kandidatin Simone Hofer, die zwar mit gekonnter Schauspiel-Einlage glänzen kann, stimmlich jedoch leider versagt.
"Russian Roulette" is a mid-tempo pop and R& B ballad    that contains dark, haunting, morbid, and tense atmospheric elements.   The song has an instrumentation consisted of guitars, piano and synths which play over a "heart beat" bass line and is accompanied with Rihanna's "affecting" vocals.    Eric Henderson of Slant Magazine wrote that the song's production is also decorated with the sound of a rolling dice.  According to Jon Pareless of The New York Times "Russian Roulette" "is paced by a heartbeat, a ticking clock and Rihanna's fearful voice."  The single is written in the key of F ♯ minor , in common time , with a tempo of 88 beats per minute. Rihanna's vocal range spans from F♯ 8 to C 5 .  Chicago Tribune ' s Greg Kot called the singer's voice a "delicate instrument" that is often the least element in her song's production, however, he noted that on the song "she's squarely in the center of the action". 
Auch Rapper Burak Külekci schafft es in den Recall von "Deutschland sucht den Superstar" und das, obwohl er ausschließlich rappen kann. Doch die Jury fühlt sich so unterhalten, dass sie ihm eine Chance gibt.
Den Geschmack der Jury will auch DSDS-Kandidatin 7569 Sophia Akkara treffen. Nach einem traditionellen indischen Tanz singt sie "Lights" von Ellie Goulding. "Deutschland sucht den Superstar"-Juror Prince Kay One ist sofort begeistert: "Wahnsinn, es hat mir gefallen, dass jemand was Neues reinbringt." Mieze Katz zweifelt hingegen an, dass Kay One und sie dieselbe Musik gehört haben "Ich fand es irgendwie schräg." Doch auch Marianne Rosenberg und Dieter Bohlen finden Sophias Darbietung super und schicken sie in den Recall. Dorthin geht es auch für die 67-jährige Concetta Paola Grillo, die es mit viel betteln und Kampfgeist schafft, nicht nur Marianne Rosenberg, sondern schlussendlich auch Dieter Bohlen zu überzeugen. Da er ihr Jury-Joker ist, reicht es so gerade für die nächste Runde von "Deutschland sucht den Superstar".

"Was für ein Sonnenschein", schwärmt Mieze Katz, nachdem Aneta Sablik den Raum verlassen hat. Auch Kay Ones Geschmack trifft sie hundertprozentig: "Nur eine schlechte Sache war dran: Dass sie einen Freund hat."
In der dritten Castingshow von "Deutschland sucht den Superstar" will DSDS-Kandidatin Aneta Sablik ihrem Traum vom Superstar-Leben ein Stück näher kommen. Als sie dann den Beyonce-Hit "Best Thing I Ever Had" zum Besten gibt, ist die Jury begeistert. Prince Kay One gibt sogar zu: "Ich glaube, ich bin verliebt!" Während die DSDS-Kandidaten Sophia, Richard, Concetta, Bugra, Larissa und Burak ebenfalls überzeugen können, gibt es leider auch wieder einige stimmliche Totalausfälle.
Besser läuft es dagegen für DSDS-Kandidat 7569 Richard Schlögl. Er singt Aviciis "Wake Me Up". "Du bringst eine schöne Präsenz mit, eine Leichtigkeit. Man schaut dir gerne zu", lobt Mieze Katz den Sänger. Dieter Bohlen findet zwar, dass Richard noch "extrem gecoacht" werden muss, aber auch er sieht in dem Kandidaten einen "guten Typen". Damit schafft auch Superstar-Anwärter Richard den Sprung in den Recall.

Besser macht es da DSDS-Kandidatin 7569 Larissa Joyce Melody Haase mit "Russian Roulette" von Rihanna. "Du hast die Nummer fantastisch gesungen, jeden Ton getroffen und das Gefühl war prima", lobt Dieter Bohlen und Marianne Rosenberg findet Larissa "richtig toll". Mieze Katz mag vor allem die "Färbung der Stimme" und Prince Kay One gibt ebenfalls ein "Ja".
