The 'R.I.P.' singer brought all her number one hits to London's O2 Arena tonight.

Rita Ora made her debut at the Jingle Bell Ball tonight (9th December) as she performed some of her biggest hits to 16,000 fans inside London's O2 Arena.
Arriving on stage wearing a striking red and white combination with baggy trousers, she rose from the floor and performed a chilled opening to her Vodafone Big Top 40 smash 'R.I.P' before screaming 'London, you ready?!"

She then lead into the familiar rhythm of the track and swaggered about the stage with a group of backing dancers and continued to bounce around - clearly revelling in the atmosphere of the big stage.

She smiled and shouted: "Hello, London. I said hello London," taking in the applause of her opening number.

"There's one thing we wanted to do for you, and that's entertain you," she declared, adding: "This song is one of my favourites," before performing 'Shine Ya Light'.

Rita was in a chatty mood and full of energy throughout as she continued: "Before i say anything else, I think this is the loudest crowd i've ever performed for."

The singer then asked "who remembers this one," leading into her DJ Fresh smash 'Hot Right Now'.

It was then the turn for her next Vodafone Big Top 40 number one 'How We Do (Party & BS)' with the singer moving around the stage and encouraging those in attendance to "make some noise" as she closed her set with streamers and confetti filling the arena.
The 22 year-old star took to the stage shortly after Example with Girls Aloud opening the show and Conor Maynard performing second on the bill.
Day two will also see the likes of Calvin Harris, Pink and The Wanted taking to the stage.

Rita Ora's Jingle Bell Ball 2012 set list was as follows:

  • 'R.I.P'
  • 'Shine Ya Light'
  • 'Hot Right Now'
  • 'How We Do (Party & BS)'
