Watch: Jay-Z, Coldplay and Rihanna Take The Stage For Paralympics Closing Ceremony

Written by Mike Hohnen on September 10, 2012

The London Paralympics wrapped up overnight and some of the biggest names in contemporary music were there to lend a hand. Farewelling the games from the position of centre stage was Jay Z, Rihanna, and headliners Coldplay, all of whom round-robinned their performances together.

Hov and Rihanna joined Coldplay on stage to a full-band verson of Run This Town before Jay took the spotlight with Paradise, and of course Rhianna and Coldplay reenacted their well-known duet (recently slammed by The Vaccines) Princess of China.

Sydney Morning Herald described a powerful moment, with the performance containing everything “from people with flame throwers to dancers holding flares and fireworks erupting like the shape of a heart around 164 flag bearers, including Evan O’Hanlon for Australia.”
