Millions tuned in to the Paralympics Closing Ceremony in London last night, and today, three performers from the hours-long finale still have people buzzing.

Jay-Z, Rihanna, and Coldplay all took the stage during the event and filled the stadium with colorful pageantry, stadium-pleasing songs, and tons of pats on each other’s backs. The three artists are all friends as well as collaborators, of course, so there was a lot of plenty of shared love: Chris Martin’s crew backed RiRi for “We Found Love,” Hova helped infuse Coldplay’s “Paradise” with swag, and the whole cadre came together for Jay’s “Run This Town.”

If you missed it last night, you can check out the cooperative performances for yourself with the videos below:
