The crowd at DirecTV’s Super Saturday Night party came for Rihanna, and got a healthy dose of Kanye West as a bonus. West trotted on stage as Rihanna sang the opening lines of their hit “All of the Lights,” a surprise guest at an event that’s become known for delivering shows from music’s superstars on the eve of the Super Bowl.

Rihanna opened the performance with “Rockstar 101″ and moved through several her hits, including “Umbrella,” ”Rude Boy” and “We Found Love.” Unfortunately she did not perform her new song “FourFiveSeconds”.

She reached out and touched fans and moved effortlessly around a semicircle stage that allowed her to reach fans throughout the venue. After a few duets, Rihanna left the stage as West performed “Jesus Walks,” ”Black Skinhead” ”Flashing Lights” and other hits.

Both performers opted to slow down the tempo at times, with Rihanna performing “Stay” and West singing a new song, “Only One.”

    Six days before Eminem and Rihanna are set to combine for the first date on their co-headlining Monster duo, the superstar pair gave music fans a quick preview of the upcoming stadium shows when Em brought out Rihanna as a surprise guest during his Lollapalooza headlining set on Friday night (August 7).

    The rapper and singer linked up for both of their smash collaborations, serenading Chicago’s Grant Park with “Love The Way You Lie” and “The Monster.” Both songs enjoyed multi-week runs atop Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. Rihanna also joined Em to handle Dido’s memorable hook on his 1999 hit, “Stan.” Rihanna tweeted:

    Thank you Eminem and Chicago for letting me share this moment with you at #Lollapalooza
