Rihanna‘s first annual Diamond Ball was held last night at The Vineyard in Los Angeles, and the singer swapped out a pink gown for a black one before belting out a wide array of songs. Sadly, despite the world’s anxious thirst for #R8, none of said tunes were brand new. Tucked in among a set list that included RiRi staples like “Umbrella” and “Diamonds,” however, was a gorgeous orchestral version of Unapologetic number “Pour It Up.”

The Diamond Ball was put into motion by Rihanna’s Clara Lionel Foundation, which works to further health, education, arts and culture in communities worldwide. Those in attendance included Paper cover girl Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Salma Hayek, Big Sean, Jimmy Kimmel and Brad Pitt, who introduced Rihanna on stage.
