Rihanna Sauces Up American Idol with Sexy Performance (watch!)

Rihanna put on a saucy show to mark the finale of American Idol. She wore a black bra with pointed studs and hotpants with a fringed double slit skirt barely covering her legs to sing her song “Where Have You Been.”

She was backed by an elaborate stage production that included copious mist and a big entrance in a box that was opened to reveal her standing on an elevated stage under a triangle laced with green lasers.

The 24-year-old singer has given up on her blonde phase and wore her now dark hair with dreadlock extensions.

The song, her 11th No. 1 singles hit is from her latest album Talk That Talk which has gone platinum, meaning it’s sold more than one million copies in the United States.

Rihanna jetted in from London for the performance. She took the stage with her mentor Jay-Z and Kanye West on their Watch the Throne tour. She performed two songs from her album at London’s O2 Arena.
