During a tour stop at Dublin's Aviva Stadium, Rihanna seemed to get caught up in the emotions of the crowd. While she was singing "Love The Way You Lie," she couldn't help but get a little teary-eyed.

It's unclear what prompted her to tear up, but it may have just been the passion coming from her fans in Ireland. "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," she said, according to RTE. "Thank you so much." 

She posted a message on Instagram to the same effect, saying the crowd helped her get through her feelings that night. "Such an emotional show for me," she wrote. "No matter what I'm on you always snatch me out of it."

Her fans was a little worried, since she also started the concert late. But she seems to have recovered quickly, keeping it cheerful and fun through the rest of her show. Because she's nothing if not a total pro.
