X Factor ’12: Rihanna Performs In The Rain On Results Show

Straight off the back of her reportedly wild 777 tour, Rihanna took to the stage at tonight’s X Factor results show – and she gave a very weather-appropriate performance.

Performing her new song Diamonds, the Barbadian singer wore an almost see-through black dress, covering herself from head to toe.

However no amount of clothing was going to save her from the staging chosen to accompany her track. During the last chorus the X Factor heavens opened and the ‘We Found Love’ singer got rained on!

Normally during effects like this, the singer doesn’t actually get wet, but of course Rihanna likes to mix things up and so she sang the remainder of the song dripping in “rain”. This meant that Dermot couldn’t get near the singer post-performance and had to stand on the other side of the set – with an umbrella!

Also performing on tonight’s result show was American singer Bruno Mars. He sang his new track “Locked Out Of Heaven,” donning a hat and sunglasses to do so.

After the performance Dermot asked if he could join Bruno Mars, as he had great dance moves. Bruno looked a tad confused but said yes – he obviously isn’t so familiar with Dermot’s awesome dancing!

What did you think of tonight’s guest performances?

Look how far the contestants have come!
