The set is opened by Riri with 'We Found Love', proceeds with a 'Princess of China' duet between her and the Chris Martin band, and finally closed by the band with 'Paradise'.
Rihanna was one of the performers during the 54th Annual Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 12. The Barbados singer was joined on the stage by Coldplay, and the two of them hooked up for "Princess of China", a song from the band's latest album "Mylo Xyloto".
The set kicked off with "We Found Love" by Riri, who bathed in red light. "Make some noise for Whitney!" she said, paying tribute to Whitney Houston. She later welcomed Chris Martin to deliver "Princess of China" together. While she headed backstage after finishing the song, Chris and his band stayed to perform "Paradise".
Before their performances, Foo Fighters entertained the crowd outside of the Staples Center by rocking out their single "Walk". They were introduced by actor/comedian Jack Black. Prior to them, Kelly Clarkson and Jason Aldean made a duet in "Don't You Wanna Stay". Their pop/country collaboration was introduced by Reba McEntire.
