Despite rumours that the singer would enter the stadium via zip wire, Rihanna instead opted for a giant pirate ship for her duet with Chris Martin on song 'Princess of China'.
On reaching the stage, flirty Rihanna stroked Chris's face and stared longingly into his eyes.
Not that we can blame her.

Rihanna later returned to the stage to perform monster her hit 'We Found Love' while suspended mid air on a garden swing and again to perform with Jay Z on 'Run this Town'.
After her performance, the star took to Twitter to gush about the ceremony.
She tweeted: "What a blessed evening!!!! #Coldplay #HOV #paralympicsclosingceremony"
During the show, Piers Morgan tweeted his dislike for the star's newly cropped haircut.
He posted: "ps I think @Rihanna needs to grow her hair back. Fast."
Quick to respond, Rihanna retweeted his comment with a cheeky addition.
She wrote: "@piersmorgan: ps I think @Rihanna needs to grow her hair back. Fast." grow a d***..... FAST!!!!"
Despite the war of words between the two, Piers took the opportunity to ask the singer for an interview, with Rihanna happily accepting his offer.
She tweeted: "@piersmorgan haaaa! Only if it's not about cosmetics! But phuck yea lets do it!!!!!!!!!"
