Singer Leann Rimes struggled to contain her emotions and wept onstage after receiving a standing ovation from fans following her emotional performance in London on Sunday (17Mar13).

The Blue hitmaker gave a heartfelt rendition of new track Borrowed as well as an a capella version of Amazing Grace at the packed O2 Arena, and her British devotees were clearly impressed as they stood to applaud her.

Rimes later took to her Twitter.com page to express her thanks, writing, "Wow, all I can say is wow!! London, I love you so much!!"

The singer was among several country stars, including Tim McGraw and Carrie Underwood, who teamed up to perform at the Country to Country two-day country music extravaganza in the U.K. capital over the weekend (16-17Mar13).
