Rita Ora review: Thigh-high boots, red lipstick and beautiful vocals
With long flowing blonde locks and a gladiator style dress, Rita Ora lived up to her pop diva fame.
A gang of backing dancers clad in black and white gear performed gravity-defying tricks as she rose up through the stage and made her entrance singing R.I.P.
Rita Ora looked edgy and fierce in her bright red lipstick and the audience were quickly hooked on her catchy dance tunes and memorable lyrics.

Instead she chose to wear a pair of black thigh-high boots which allowed her to energetically dance around the stage.
Miss Ora excited the audience with hits including I Will Never Let You Down and Hot Right Now.
She also gave a performance of her latest song Poison, which she said described the crazy life of a 24-year-old.
Towards the end of her performance, she asked if she could welcome someone on stage - while backstage staff hurried on a piano.
I was perhaps not the only one not to recognise New York hip-hop artist Charles Hamilton was but their duet 'New York Raining' was beautifully performed.
And the audience was happy enough it wasn't Norwich raining.
