We're just three days away from Rihanna landing in the UK, people! THREE DAYS!

Last night, the Bajan Princess arrived in Dublin for her mahoosive show at the city's Aviva Stadium and it was as dramatic an arrival as ever.

While fans have flocked to Twitter to make sure she's okay after welling up on stage, the critics have been raving about the show.

The Telegraph know what's up, as they said: "Here was a slick, sleek arena blockbuster that didn't waste time on embellishments and instead delivered full-strength shots of sass and escapism. Long may this enigma stay unsolved."

They continue: "She was never less than fascinating, swaying expressively through Pour It Up and grinning fiercely  on Desperado, a power ballad on tank tracks. You understood how Jay Z was moved to offer her a six album deal on the spot when she turned up at his office as a plucky unknown in 2005."

Nope, can't argue with that! Ri-Ri was clearly feeling the vibes by the end of the night, too, as she addressed the crowd before leaving: "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."
