Rita Ora Is Clearly Very Excited to Perform at the Oscars
Good news Rita Ora fans. The singer will perform at the 2015 Academy Awards!
Ora will sing the Oscar-nominated song "Grateful," written by Diane Warren for the film Beyond the Lights, at the 87th annual show. "The mixture of her incredible voice and glamour makes a perfect combination for our show," show producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron said in a statement.
And it seems that Ora is pretty darn pumped for the big day as she made announcements on both Twitter and Instagram.
The song lineup for the 2015 Oscars includes Adam Levine, who will be singing "Lost Stars" from Begin Again, and Common and John Legend, who'll perform "Glory" from Selma. The other songs nominated in the category are "Everything Is Awesome" from The Lego Movie and "I'm Not Gonna Miss You" from Glen Campbell … I'll Be Me.
Ora is clearly working on branching out into films as she has a role in a little film called Fifty Shades of Grey as well as Southpaw, starring Jake Gyllenhaal. Her second album will drop this spring.
The Oscars, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, will air on Sunday, Feb. 22, live on ABC from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
