Rita Ora went from blue Smurf hair back to blonde bombshell for her latest gig.

Never one to shy away from experimentation, the RIP singer showcased her new long sleek tresses, punctuated with bright yellow streaks, at an exclusive Priceless Gig for 300 MasterCard cardholders at Cafe de Paris in London.

The 22-year-old, who is rumoured to be dating Calvin Harris, tweeted: "Yellow hair don't care day."

During the intimate gig, she highlighted her trademark blonde hair and red lip image, citing Gwen Stefani as her major inspiration.

Performing an hour-long set, Rita sang covers including No Doubt's Hey Baby and NERD's She Wants To Move, as well as her own chart-topping numbers including RIP, Hot Right Now and How We Do (Party).

Rita thanked the crowd for her "crazy year" as she banged on drums and danced around the stage in a head-to-toe print outfit.

"I really enjoyed working with MasterCard on the Priceless Remakes competition for this year's Brit Awards and I wanted to keep that partnership going by doing this Priceless Gig. It was a brilliant night and I hope my Ritabots had as much fun as I did!" the songstress said.

Rita's performance was part of MasterCard's series of Priceless Gigs, which gives fans the opportunity to see their favourite stars perform for free, up close and personal in an exclusive setting. Visit to enter the ballot for further Priceless Gigs with Conor Maynard and Delilah.
