Jay-Z and Rihanna helped Coldplay close out the 2012 Paralympics in London on Sunday. The show, dubbed the “Festival of the Flame,” capped off a month and half of sport and festivities in London that kicked off with the Olympics on July 27. Coldplay started the show with “Us Against the World” and “God Put A Smile Upon Your Face” before Rihanna, dressed in s bright orange jumpsuit, drifted in on a ship and joined Chris Martin and company for her feature on “Princess of China.” “Being at the Paralympics is the biggest honor,” Rihanna told the Associated Press. “These athletes are gladiators and are a true inspiration to me.” The freshly tattooed singer later glided in on a bench and performed “We Found Love” while swinging above the stage. She returned alongside Jay-Z for “Run This Town.” Jigga Man stuck around for a remix of Coldplay’s “Paradise,” before the U.K. band closed with “The Scientist” and “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall.” Watch highlights from the Paralympics Closing Ceremony below. “Princess of China”
