The Rihanna Navy was out in full force in Dublin Tuesday night. But the show got off to a bumpy start. Badgirl RiRi was 30 minutes late (which really isn't that bad if you look at recent complaints about Lauryn Hill showing up hours late), but her fans got a show they'll probably never forget.

During the performance of "Love the Way You Lie," the Barbadian singer was overcome with emotion and broke down in tears. With her fans cheering her on, she fought to complete the song.

Although she didn't offer an explanation for the tears, she did praise her Irish fans.

"I only have ever in my life heard an audience of people scream so loud that they sound like one voice, and that only happens in Ireland, in Dublin. Thank you so much," Rihanna stated.

Rihanna gave her fans 24 songs, a few tears and something they'll probably never forget Tuesday night. I'm sure that within minutes of her going onstage, they forgot about the lateness.
