Videos: Rihanna's Sexy and Alicia Keys' Powerful Performances at MTV VMAs


Riri opens the show with a mash-up of 'Cockiness' and 'We Found Love', while Keys is joined by Nicki Minaj to deliver her single 'Girl on Fire'.

Rihanna heated up the stage at the Staples Center in Los Angeles when kicking off 2012 MTV Video Music Awards. Coming out of a pyramid-like structure, she was clad in a red dress and sitting on a gold throne with a group of dancers surrounding her.

The Barbadian beauty sang "Cockiness" and showed some sexy moves, including groping her own body, before A$AP Rocky joined her on stage. She later got an assist from Calvin Harris for "We Found Love". The R&B singer made the crowd scream even louder when she stood in the midst of the audience.

Another songtress Alicia Keys, meanwhile, took the stage to perform her latest single "Girl on Fire" live for the first time. Starting it off solo, the wife of Swizz Beatz was joined by Nicki Minaj who delivered the rapping part. U.S. gymnast Gabby Douglas also appeared on the stage to show some of the moves that earned her a gold medal at London Olympics.

Riri was among the winners at the prize-giving event that was held on Thursday, September 6. She took home the coveted Video of the Year award, thanks to "We Found Love" clip.
