One week late: Rita Ora on Jools Holland

Normally, when the producers on Later... book a pop act, it turns out even worse than one of Jools Holland's interviews. I have tried to erase the memory of Katy Perry bell-ringing the intro to I Kissed A Girl or Yoko Ono being forced to sing next to a giant human sunflower (and Basement Jaxx).

But Rita Ora killed it on last Friday's show, where she was a last-minute replacement for Sinead O'Connor. Her performance is proof that pop artists don't have to be intimidated by the presence of "poper" musicians, so long as they can turn up and kick some ass.

I've been meaning to post these videos all week - but I've got a renewed excuse, as it looks like Rita's debut single RIP will be number one on Sunday. Not a bad result for someone who lost out to Jade Ewen in the selection process for Eurovision 2009.

Rita Ora - RIP
