Rita Ora: I'm singing at the Oscars

Rita Ora has landed her biggest gig yet - performing at the Oscars.

The pop star and Voice coach, 24, will perform Grateful, which she sang on the soundtrack of last year's film Beyond The Lights.

The song is one of five compositions up for this year's best original song award.

How We Do singer Rita, who stars in the Fifty Shades Of Grey movie which is out next month, announced the news on Twitter.

Producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron said of booking Rita for the February 22 ceremony: "The mixture of her incredible voice and glamour makes a perfect combination for our show."

As well as raunchy movie Fifty Shades, Rita will also be seen alongside Jake Gyllenhaal in the boxing drama Southpaw.

Other performers singing Oscar-nominated tracks at this year's Academy Awards include John Legend and rapper Common performing Glory from the movie Selma, and Adam Levine singing Lost Stars from Begin Again.
