Joined once again by her dancers, Rihanna closed the set with the Good Girl Gone Bad hit "Don't Stop the Music."
On the Kids' Choice Awards orange carpet before the show, Rihanna kept her ensemble light in a beige, draped dress. She was one of the night's fashion standouts, which also included Taylor Lautner, Miranda Cosgrove and Katy Perry.
