Rihanna & Kanye West had the crowd on their feet as they rocked out at DirecTV’s pre-Super Bowl party in Arizona last night. Meanwhile, D’Angelo made his performance debut after a long hiatus on “Saturday Night Live”. Check their performances inside….
The Super Bowl festivities are still underway in Arizona. And last night, YBF super stars Rihanna and Kanye West joined together on stage for a performance.
The bad gal Pop princess was the headliner for DirecTV’s Super Saturday Night at Pendergast Family Farm in Glendale, Arizona. And Yeezy popped up on stage as a surprise guest as they kicked off their joint performance of “All of the Lights”.
The twosome then gifted the concertgoers with a live performance of their platinum selling hit “Diamonds”. As ‘Ye spit his verses, he looked up to the balcony and pointed out his wife Kim Kardashian West who was in the crowd watching her husband put a show for the masses.
When Rih first hit the stage, she opened up her set with “Rock Star” and then went through several of her singles including “Umbrella,” ”Rude Boy,” “We Found Love,” then slowed it down a bit with her ballad “Stay”.
Yeezy also performed a few of his own hits including his infectious “Jesus Walks,” ”Black Skinhead” ”Flashing Lights” and his newest single “”Only One”, which is an ode to his baby girl North West.

Over on tv….
D’Angelo has announced his return to the music scene, releasing his third studio album Black Messiah after a 14-year hiatus. And last night, he took the stage as he was tapped for his first live musical performance in years on “Saturday Night Live”.
The “Sugah Daddy” singer (dressed in an interesting ensemble) and his band The Vanguard serenaded the audience with a soulful performance of his newest hits “Really Love” and “The Charade.
And while performing “The Charade”, D’Angelo and his team stood in solidarity with the “Black Lives Matter” movement as they rocked “I Can’t Breathe” t-shirts and an outline of a body was stenciled out on the floor, in reference to the Michael Brown and Eric Garner police killings.
