Rihanna rocked Staples Center Sunday night as the halftime entertainment for the 2011 NBA All Star Game. Playing a set of radio hits including "Umbrella" and "What's My Name?" on which she was joined on stage by Drake. The big surprise came at the end when a horn section blared the intro to "All Of The Lights", Kanye West's newest single that features Rihanna. Out of a cloud of smoke Mr. West himself emerged and performed the track with Rihanna as the finale of the performance.
