The 'We Found Love' star made a triumphant return to the comedy sketch show this past weekend.

Rihanna gave her first live performance of new song 'Stay' this weekend as she took to the stage on Saturday Night Live.

The Bajan star gave an emotional rendition of the track, backed by a pianist as she made her fourth appearance on the show.

The singer recently debuted the official tracklisting for her new album 'Unapologetic', which features the new song as well as collaborations with the likes of Eminem, David Guetta and Chris Brown.

Rihanna also performed her recent smash hit 'Diamonds' during the episode, which was hosted by The Dark Night Rises actress Anne Hathaway.

During her performance of her latest single the singer was seen performing in front of a huge green screen – creating a psychedelic screen saver setting for the live rendition.
