She's gone from unknown to chart-topper in the UK in less than a year, and is hoping to repeat her success in the U.S.
And tonight (Thursday), Rita Ora made sure she made a big impression on American audiences as she stood out from the crowd in a risqu sparkling jumpsuit.
There was no missing the 21-year-old as she showed off her curves in a custom-made black and silver Emilio Pucci jumpsuit.

Under the bright lights of the cameras, the sheer panel at the front showed rather a lot of the star's ample cleavage.
She teamed the eye-catching ensemble with a pair of black Christian Louboutin heels and Cartier jewellery.
The Kosovo-born singer, who is signed to Jay-Z's Roc Nation, is yet to have a hit in the U.S., although she has already had two No.1s in the UK this year.
