UK Eurovision star from 2009 Jade Ewen has been having a good Twitter battle of words with Pop Star Rita Ora. As we reported earlier in the week Rita had hit out at Eurovision and Jade Ewen in the press by saying in an interview in the Evening Standard about her time on the Eurovision Audition show – Your Country Needs You – “I was 16. Andrew Lloyd Webber was there. Right from the start I was, like, What am I doing here? I did my song and walked out. No one knew what to do. They started looking for me, calling my agent. Imagine! 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!”
Ewen hit back by taking to Twitter and saying ” “Easy to mock when you are enjoying success. Eurovision and splash? Proud of both.” However she has now gone further and added on Twitter “Some manage to sleep their way to success – some have morals #justsayin.” Ewen was speaking after similar comments were made by Ora’s ex partner Rob Kardashian of “Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s” fame and Geordie Shore cast member Holly Hagan – which caused Ora to launch a Twitter retaliation of a strong worded nature – use your imagination or look at Ora’s Twitter Feed.
This Eurovision battle seems to be escalating. Where will it end?

Jade Ewen went on to win the UK Eurovision Selection in 2009 whilst Ora withdrew from the contest. Ewen took the UK to fifth place at the Eurovision that year held in Moscow which was their best result since 2002 when Jessica Garlic took the UK to joint third place with “Baby Come Back”.
