Sunday’s closing ceremonies of the 2012 Paralympics were a star-studded affair with Rihanna, Jay-Z and Coldplay all performing.

In addition to individual sets, Rihanna took the stage with Jay-Z to perform “Run This Town,” while also performing “Princess of China” with Coldplay.

She also sang “We Found Love” while swinging in a chair from the arena’s ceiling.

“Being at the Paralympics is the biggest honor,” Rihanna said at the London event, adding, “These athletes are gladiators and are a true inspiration to me.”

In fact, all three acts were so honored to participate, they accepted payment of only one pound ($1.60), according to the Associated Press.
