Taking the stage to the elation of the thousands of concertgoers in attendance, Rihanna performed the first of her two-day run at the UK's 2011 V Festival on Saturday night (August 20).
The "Hard" singer livened things up while front and center on the Weston Park stage in South Staffordshire, joining fellow act Eminem as the top-bill attractions of the evening.
The Barbadian beauty didn't disappoint as she churned out the hits while offering up sizzling renditions of tunes such as "S&M," "Cheers (Drink to That)," "California King Bed" and "Man Down" while also teaming up with Eminem for their chart-topping collaboration "Love the Way You Lie".
Following tonight's show, Rihanna is set to do her thing once again on Sunday night (August 21) - as she will be taking over at the Hylands Park stage in Chelmsford to cap off the annual music extravaganza.
