Rihanna Closes Wireless Festival, Thanks Fans

Jessie J, Calvin Harris & more also performed on the last day of the event...

Rihanna closed the Barclaycard Wireless Festival in spectacular fashion last night (8th July), thanking fans for braving the wet weather to stay and watch her.

Following performances from the likes of Jessie J, Labrinth and Rizzle Kicks, RiRi took to the stage at London's Hyde Park dressed in a black crop top and animal print shorts, completing her look with a leather baseball cap and leggings.


As many of her fans battled the muddy fields to witness her stint on stage, the 24-year old kicked off her set with Only Girl (In The World), before powering through some of her biggest hits including What's My Name and We Found Love.

During her Egyptian-themed set, RiRi almost suffered a slight wardrobe malfunction when her top rode up, exposing the bottom of her breasts.

Before fireworks lit up the London sky, Rihanna closed the night with appropriately named track Umbrella, thanking the Wireless crowd for enduring the rain to watch her perform.

RiRi exclaimed: "Thanks for staying to watch me in the rain... Only in London would you guys stay to watch this show", then telling the crowd: "I love you."

Jessie J also wowed crowds at the event, wearing a white bra top and stripy tights as she high-kicked her way through a set that included hit singles Laserlight and Domino.

She also welcomed a fan on stage to sing No.1 hit Price Tag with her, as well as covering Usher's Climax and Luther Vandross' Never Too Much.

Calvin Harris, Cher Lloyd and Pitbull - who was joined on stage by Ne-Yo - also performed, bringing day three of a very wet Wireless to an end.

Ahead of RiRi's closing performance, Drake and Deadmau5 previously headlined the event, with the likes of Nicki Minaj and Tulisa also performing.
