Only weeks after Daft Punk’s scintillating cameo alongside Kanye West at the Grammys, another one-off collaboration spiced up proceedings at last night’s Brit Awards. Taking the stage in a wash of lasers, Klaxons and Rihanna performed a mash-up of Golden Skans and Umbrella.

Earlier this month, Klaxons keyboardist James Righton told NME.com the hook-up was a match made in pop heaven. “It’ll blow every other live performance away,” he enthused. “It’s pretty epic. We’re all really excited about it.”

There was so little klaxons in that!! It was like they were a backing track/band to her. I'm sure there's many kiddies out there who had no idea who they were and assumed it was Rhianna's backup band. That makes me sad, the Klaxons put on an amazing li
