Today is a big day in the Rihanna/Chris Brown case.

Ri is scheduled to appear at a preliminary hearing in Los Angeles, where testimony will be heard to determine if there is enough evidence for the assault case to go to trial.

Here's what's expected:

Rihanna could testify. She is not required to -- she only has to show up in court -- but she can refuse to take the stand, due to the nature of the case. Chris Brown will definitely be in attendance, as well. If she does take the stand, Rihanna is expected to describe what was written in the detective's report from the night of the alleged attack. She could be on the stand for more than two hours. Ri's testimony will, most likely, make or break the case.

Stay tuned for details on what went down -- it's going to be a doozy!
