Rita Ora – Who auditioned for Eurovision 2009

British pop Princess Rita Ora wins the award for “Eurovision Villain of the Week” following her slamming of Eurovision Singer Jade Ewan and The Eurovision Song Contest itself. Rita has a very short memory so we are happy here at Eurovision Ireland to remind the blonde singer where we actually came to find out who she was and where she came to the attention of record companies – hmmm!

Rita Ora maybe singned by Jay-Z and Kanye West may have worked on her recent album but her Eurovision comments have been somewhat below the belt – like her recent fashion choices recently.

Ora has just finished filming a cameo appearance in “Fast and Furious 6” and has enjoyed much global record success. However she has come out feuding against 2009 Uk Eurovision Contestant Jade Ewan and the contest itself. Ora commented on her time on the Uk Selection Show in 2009 “Your Country Needs You” (That she quit) by saying “If I’d stayed, it would probably have been all over for me. At best, I’d be a contestant on that diving show…?’ Splash? Yeah, Splash!” as she spoke to the Evening Standard.

However the winner – Jade Ewen – said on twitter “Easy to mock when you are enjoying success. Eurovision and splash? Proud of both.”

Yes it is true that Rita Ora tried out for the Uk Eurovision entry in 2009 but pulled out of the show as “She was not interested in representing her country”. It was following her appearance on the show that record labels took an interest in her. So we tell Rita to remember where her success all started  and maybe see her in 20 years time trying to get the BBC to take a chance on her. Here are Ora’s auditions for Sir Andrew Lloyd Weber back in 2009.
