Bruno Mars and Keri Hilson may have warmed the crowd up for yesterday’s NBA All-Star Game at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, but it was Rihanna’s eye-popping halftime show that completely rocked the basketball-loving crowd. And, lucky for the audience, Grammy winner RiRi had two special pals on board to give her some assistance on stage. Watch below! The crimson-haired Barbadian songstress, who also nabbed a BRIT Award last week, kicked her set off with an orchestral version of her 2007 smash “Umbrella,” then changed the mood completely by tossing her jacket to the side and strutting around while belting out “Only Girl (In The World)” and “Rude Boy.”

Rihanna then launched into “What’s My Name,” and that’s when Drake surprised the crowd by stepping up from below the stage to add his rap to the chart-topping jam.

But the real surprise came when Kanye West walked onto the stage to spit out his latest single “All Of The Lights,” a mere day after the song’s music video premiered.

What do you think—was Rihanna’s performance a slam dunk?
