The typical audience for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge includes the person doing the challenge, the person filming the challenge, the person dumping the ice and occasionally one other bystander/nominee. But Eminem and Rihanna took the challenge to a whole new level when they did it in front of the audience of their "Monster Tour" performance.
Eminem was initially issued the challenge by frequent collaborator Dr. Dre. He performed the challenge during a concert in his hometown of Detroit, Mich. After taking the icy plunge, Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, yelled out "If this was not for charity I would be so f**king mad right now."
After completing his challenge, Eminem challenged Def Jam founder Rick Rubin and Denaun Porter, who was at the concert and did the challenge on stage as well. After Porter completed his challenge Eminem still had one more person on his "bucket" list-none other than Riri herself!
Riri was the last to take the plunge onstage before the duo ended their concert. The entire event was posted to Eminem's Facebook page.
Donations to ALS since the Ice Bucket Challenge became popular have continued to pour in. According to the ALS association's website, the donations have reached $70.2 million as of Sunday.
