There was no need to “Stop The Music” last night when Barbados superstar Rihanna made a glamorous VIP appearance at Katy Perry’s live performance for CHUM FM’s BREAKFAST IN BARBADOS 2009 concert last night. As undisputed “It Girl” Perry rocked the stage, hometown girl Rihanna had heads turning as the most welcome party-crasher of the night.  Rihanna and Perry were spotted watching Kelly Clarkson’s powerful set which followed Perry’s from side stage.

Last night marked the triumphant finale to CHUM FM’s BREAKFAST IN BARBADOS 2009, with show-stopping performances featuring international hit-maker Kelly Clarkson, dazzling songstress Katy Perry and Canadian rockers Simple Plan. The trio of performers joined the ROGER, DARREN & MARILYN morning show, treating CHUM FM contest winners to the live musical event of the year. CHUM FM listeners in Toronto were also able to tune in to the live on-air performance.

Island girl Rihanna arrived in Barbados earlier in the week, spending a few days showing her new BFF Katy Perry around the island.  Ecstatic CHUM FM contest winners were able to get up close and personal to the chart-topping artist, who mingled with partygoers through the night.  The evening included an impromptu audience “Happy Birthday” serenade for Kelly Clarkson, who proceeded to wow the crowd by belting out her hits “My Life Would Suck without You”, “Since You’ve Been Gone”, “Breakaway”, and a powerful rendition of “Because of You”.

BREAKFAST IN BARBADOS 2009 was sponsored by Air Canada Vacations, Almond Resorts and CIBC Aerogold VISA.
