CW69 is bringing you the sexiest night on television a.k.a., the “Victoria’s Secret Annual Fashion Show” this Wednesday!
And in addition to the fun, glitz, and color that makes up the VS annual holiday event, the performances you need to tune in for this year include two songs each from Rihanna, Bruno Mars, and Justin Bieber.
Rihanna went first, with her hit song “Diamonds”. She wore a black, strapless dress, a garter that peeked out from a cut-high slit, and round Potter-like sunglasses, except these were rimmed with pearls (see featured photo above). Just before the curtain fell for the evening, Rihanna performed her a new song, “Phresh Out the Runway.” She unleashed her inner VS model, holding her own among the Angels in a baby pink, lace camisole.
Bruno went next, in his signature top hat and blazer, , singing his catchy hit single “Locked Out of Heaven” with his 6 man-band and their jazzy, brass instruments. They stayed at the top of the stage as the models walked out for the “Calendar Girls” segment, until Miss December walked out, and then we got to see Mars and his band show off some swag dance moves on the runway, too.
Then came Bieber, wearing low-slung white pants, a white leather studded vest, and silver cut-out gloves, sitting alone on a stool with his guitarist. For what was the mellowest part of the show, he sang ”As Long as You Love Me”, and even some of the angels were enchanted with Bieber Fever (including Adriana Lima and Candice Swanepoel). He then picked up the tempo with “Beauty and a Beat” while the PINK models walked the runway.
Mars, accompanied by a classical, black piano, then sang “Young Girls”, for the Hollywood-glamor-inspired segment.
Check out all of these performances during the VS Fashion Show 2012, airing this Wednesday, Dec. 12th, at 9pm on CW69.
