It’s only a matter of time before these clips get zapped off YouTube, so watch ‘em quick.
Rihanna opened the show by with her debut performance of new single Cockiness, featuring A$AP Rocky.
RiRi started her performance perched on a throne (how very apt), dressed in red leather trousers she slunk onto the stage and performance a dance routine that left viewers in no doubt about what the track was about.
On the flip side, One Direction performance was wholesome fun for all the family. The stage was filled with hysterical female fans as the 1D boys bounced their way through One Thing.
Even Katy Perry sang along, serenading BFF Rihanna. Cute.
