Rihanna delivered a spectacular performance during the "American Idol" final result show on Wednesday night, May 23. Coming out from a giant pyramid on the center of the stage, the Bajan singer performed her latest single "Where Have You Been" in front of the screaming audience.
Showing off her legs in an all-black number, Riri stormed the stage with a host of dancers. Though she appeared to be loosing a bit of breath at the end of her performance, the 24-year-old songstress managed to cheer up the audience with her energetic dance routines.
"Where Have You Been" is lifted from Riri's newest studio effort "Talk That Talk", which has been released since November last year. The album also features hit single "We Found Love" which topped the Billboard Hot 100 for ten non-consecutive weeks.
Aside from Rihanna's performance, the "Idol" finale show was also made merry by live performances by Reba McEntire and Skylar Laine who sang "Turn on the Radio", as well as John Fogerty and Phillip Phillips who delivered "Have You Ever Seen the Rain?".
The eleventh season of the singing contest show has named Phillips as its champion. Receiving a standing ovation from the judges after delivering "Home" on Tuesday performance show, Phillips beat out fellow finalist Jessica Sanchez who ended up as the runner up.
