Jay-Z, Rihanna & Coldplay at the Paralympics

A couple of weeks ago, we beheld the weirdly moving spectacle of Orbital and Stephen Hawking performing together at the Paralympics Opening Ceremony. The games ended this past weekend, and last night’s closing ceremony had a far more conventional big draw: Coldplay, who called in some favors for their set. The band played “Paradise” all by themselves (with a few circus dancers helping out), then wheeled in Rihanna on a pirate ship to help sing “Princess Of China.” And Coldplay also near-inaudibly backed up Jay-Z and Rihanna on a rendition of Jay’s “Run This Town.” Watch all three performances below.

Seriously though, watch that Orbital/Stephen Hawking thing.

  1. Oh gawd…I accidentally heard “Paradise” this one time, what an annoying goddamn earworm…it’s still noggin bouncing…please make it stop!!

  2. dudes just get done painting a house or something?

  3. Though I am sure there are those that would disagree. I believe Coldplay will absolutely go down as one of the best bands of all time. I am sure there are those who will argue otherwise but that is my opinion and I am sticking to it!lol
