VIDEO: Rihanna rocks The X Factor

Rihanna rocked The X Factor results show Thursday night.

The pop superstar flew in from her UK tour to be on the show, actually taping her performance on Wednesday night so that it could fit her hectic schedule.

Rihanna did her #1 smash, “We Found Love,” surrounded by her dancers as they all bounced around the X Factor stage to the delight of the studio audience.

The song is the first single from her new album, "Talk That Talk," which is due November 21.

As Entertainment Weekly reported prior to Thursday’s broadcast, Rihanna did two takes on the song during Wednesday's taping; the paper speculated it was for a couple of reasons, including the short post-song interview with host Steve Jones.
