The Eurovision Song Contest

Rita Ora: “Before I got signed, this opportunity came my way and I didn’t really know a lot about the contest. I didn’t really watch it but I thought it was my last shot. There was a time, from when I was 16 to 18, where I was like, ‘What am I doing with myself?’ I was lost and I didn’t really have that much to do. I just felt like I didn’t know what was going to happen to me so I thought that was my last chance.

“Luckily I didn’t pursue it and I got a great deal instead. It was funny because when you feel like something is not working out, all of a sudden something turns around and something happens. It was a really weird time in my life but it was also amazing because I had to grow up fast.”
