Before James Arthur was announced as 2012’s X Factor winner to the UK, Bajan superstar Rihanna took to the stage and soared with an unexpected medley.
Beginning with Unapologetic‘s second single Stay, Rihanna’s vocals were on point and equally as strong as her Saturday Night Live performance last month. Although, in an unexpected turn to the performance the Diamonds singer began to sing a mellow rendition of the Calvin Harris-produced hit We Found Love, which soon seen the beats kick in for the Manchester Arena to go wild for the singer.
Also, unlike her last time performing on the UK show with Diamonds, Rihanna had time for a short but sweet chat with the presenter Dermot O’Leary.
Rihanna’s promotional performances have seen her vocals soar equalling her stage presence, and luckily the new music has translated greatly on TV as Stay has already debuted on the UK Singles Chart at #8.
