Wireless Festival 2012: Rihanna and Jessie J steal the show

This year’s Wireless Festival in Hyde Park was all about the women, with show-stopping performances courtesy of Rihanna, Jessie J, Nicki Minaj and Tulisa.

The festival, which was a storming success, saw 40,000 music fans descend on Hyde Park despite the drizzly weather, and they were joined by a variety of a-list stars including Jason Statham, his girlfriend Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Katherine Jenkins, Henry Holland and Nicola Roberts.

There were fears that Rihanna, 24, would pull out of her headlining gig due to the very recent death of her grandmother, but the singer didn’t disappoint her fans and dazzled the crowds with a medley of her hits.

Appearing on stage in a black midriff-skimming studded top, lacy high-waisted pants and peacock-patterned cover-up with billowing sleeves, the We Found Love singer showed no sign of her recent loss as she gyrated and even came down into the crowd to sing for her fans.

Earlier festival goers had been treated to an energetic performance from Jessie J, who took to the stage shortly before Rihanna, wearing denim shorts, stripey tights and a white crop top.

Other big names performing at Wireless included Cher Lloyd and up-and-coming British artist Rita Ora, who recently scored her first number one single with R.I.P.

However Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall, 19, didn’t have such a good time according to The Mirror, after being threatened by a festival-goer who shouted out: “I’m gonna stab you!”

Jade's bandmates Jesy Nelson, Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock were also at the festival.



Which female performer do you think looked best at Wireless?
Rihanna - The Bajan singer looked fierce in top-to-toe black
Jessie J - She looked casual and stylish in denim shorts and printed tights
Rita Ora - She rocked the urban look in army combats and black t-shirt
Nicki Minaj - The Super Bass singer rocked it with her signature colour and print clash
Tulisa Contostavlos - She looked cute in black bra top and black star-patterned skater skirt
Cher Lloyd - The Want U Back singer channelled the Goth look in leather and fringing
