Must See: Rita Ora Performs ‘R.I.P’ At MTV EMA’s 2012

Published: Sunday 11th Nov 2012 by Sam

Rita Ora is not here to play. And neither are the machine behind her movement – Roc Nation.

Together, they continued their no stone unturned approach towards the singer’s debut campaign with a show-stopping performance at the MTV European Music Awards 2012.

Backed for the first time by stage theatrics aplenty, the 21 year old served up a rendition of her chart-topping smash ‘R.I.P’.

Get into Rita’s Ora below…

Great performance!

Having proven herself as an acoustic/vocal act, it’s clear “Operation Next Level” has been green-lit, as evidenced by the army of dancers, raining fireworks, and runway walk. Has Rita had better vocal showings? Yes. However, we can’t but be excited at the prospect of what her “act” can become when given the full “star” treatment. Onwards and upwards

        Ummm…Let’s see Rihanna sell a million albums in less than six months! She could NEVER! But Beyonce sure TF Can! Shut TF up and stop bringing Beyonce’s name into every musical discussion. It’s pathetic.

  10. Sha (Benron and MC are f***) November 11, 2012

    SOOOOO I hear they let this flop b**** open the EMA I wonder how much that cost Rocnation here is a link if you want to see a weak vocals and using a umbrella like RIHANNA I CANT

  11. Rihanna black madonna November 11, 2012

    She cannot sing. She cannot dance, she was so stiff on stage. Rih MTV awards is better than this. The crowd were not even hyped. Even Ciara at black girl rock was better. LOL LOL of course of course she copied Rihanna video with the umbrella and light rain. Ripped umbrellla off 100% But I love it, cos it points everyone back in Rih’s direction and this is why her LP is number 5 in USA.

    Then MTV com could not resist shading Rita by showing her dress, next to Rihanna wearing the exact same dress back in 2010. Only Rih’s marchesa red dress looked better because she is tall, slim and has banging model, that even victoria secrets models loved. Rita is just a short fat s*** who makes a fool of herself on the global stage.

    The funny part, is that she opened the no name show, but they could not give the sales stats of RIP. Cos it flopped and has not even sold 500k. LOL LOL

    THe only people are talking about this wack than wack EMA’s is why Rih was not there and why these no names are winning the award. Her performance got zero buzz.

    Shine bright like A diamond.

    • Sha (Benron and MC are f***) November 11, 2012

      I agree with everything you said this FLOP B**** needs to go away and she will because you and I both know this FLOP will be dropped soon!!!!!!

      • MegaCRITIC November 11, 2012

        Ummmm..Do you not remember that Rihann’s first two album were ULTIMATE FLOPS? Damn. It took time for Rihanna to gain the musical platform to sell singles and albums. Give Rita Ora time to develop an act before passing judgement.

    • Lana Del Slay November 11, 2012

      Lol your a Rihanna stan and you claim someone cant sing. That is hilarious

  12. Sha (Benron and MC are f***) November 11, 2012

    SO Samantha has me on moderation cant handle the fact that Rita will NEVER BE A STAR point blank and the f****** period!!!!!! GO suck on a fat d*** B****

    • miss marvel November 11, 2012


    • Benron (King Of The F****** Navi)) November 11, 2012

      Did you see her at the end copying umbrella and holding an umbrella up with dancers copying rih’s dancers and sparks raining.

      • MC (Benron aka Ashanti is jealous of Beyonce) November 11, 2012

        Yes!! I’m kinda scared for Rihanna’s life.

      • Benron (King Of The F****** Navi)) November 11, 2012

        Me too, but if Rita sneaks into Rih’s hotel room she’ll probably be with Chris and he is used to beating women…

      • MC (Benron aka Ashanti is jealous of Beyonce) November 11, 2012

        DAMN! lol

  13. Britbutnotproud November 11, 2012

    This is my honest opinion and not a dig at Rita. My advice to Roc Nation – when you are developing a new artist she should be slowly spoon fed to the masses. Unfortunately this is not the case. Roc have forced Rita down our throat at lightening speed (a case of too much too soon). IMO new artists should be broken in gently unfortunately roc did not use this strategy which will no doubt cost them financially if Rita fails to make the impact they are hoping for. Finally I am of the opinion Sam at That Grape Juice is contributing to Rita!s downfall with the over exposure and column inches they give her. My question to Sam are you really staning for Rita like you want us to believe?

  14. I am BLUE THE REAL HIVE November 11, 2012

    Taylor smith just win again best live bye R****


      BYE BEYHOE SINCE 2009!!!

  15. HOL UP November 11, 2012

    I like rita I’m a part of the navy/beyhive and i love that hello hi goodbye song by the girl and this song but I just feel like shes never gone be as big as she should because of the comparisons and the shade that gets thrown I feel roc nation knew what they were doing when they had her come out around the same time rihanna had the blonde hair and then to come out with that first single RIP to the girl you used to see her days are over…chile that was some shade from jump maybe not from her but record labels know how to churn the pot don’t get it twisted but i feel as if it backfired because its rare to find a true rita fan most of her fans are rihanna haters and that’s not a fan base beyonce’s beyhive may not like the navy but they genuinely like beyonce and the navy may not like bey but they genuinely like rihanna so it sucks for rita but i think it was the right girljust the wrong time maybe she can get that one song that will sky rocket her to fame like umbrella did rih idk most girls at roc nation have their own lane Beyonce Rihanna Melanie Fiona all these girls are winning in their own right Rita’s new so once she finds her genre/voice she may or may not get it who knows

  16. Rihanna black madonna November 11, 2012

    She copies Rihanna’s red Marchesa dress, then her Umbrella rain sequence in one day? And you wonder she is hated? I though she was so talented and Rih was copying her? Sorry, but man down sounds like nothing Rita has done.This is worst than when Kylie was copying Madonna.

    Thanks Rita Ora for all your promotion, of Superstar, Rihanna. At the VMA. Diamonds is now at number 2 on itunes and the LP is number 5. Hey, Rita, when you get dropped, come and work as Rihanna PR, cos you are the best around to promote her.

    • HOL UP November 11, 2012

      Noo sweety we as the Navy must keep it cute let the things rih has done speak for itself if they really thought rita was the end of rihanna career let them think it while Diamonds becomes number one lol we don’t gotta point it out they know what it is don’t even give em the satisfaction because when they see her they know thats rih lmao

  17. Rita fat w**** November 11, 2012

    She is fat, ugly and looks gross hands beyonce and jayz a gun,I bet Rihanna is at home laughing her model ass out

  18. Rihanna black madonna November 11, 2012

    Rita Ora lost the rolling stone cover to Karmin. Rita Ora lost one fan vote MOBO to Emelie. Rita Ora lost Radio 1 teen award to one direction . Rita Ora lost MTV EMA to Carly rae. Where are all these so called ritabots>

    On the flipside, cIARA IS performing worse under LA reid than jive. GGM HAS CRASHED OUT ITUNES 100

  19. Monstarebel (RiRis S** Slave) November 11, 2012

    R.i.p. to the career I use to see I’ll be getting dropped in 2013!!!!!

  20. MC (Benron aka Ashanti is jealous of Beyonce) November 11, 2012

    Am I the only person that thinks this song/dress/umbrella/performance was about Rihanna?

    • BRIGANTE November 11, 2012

      Yeah, sure. Everything is about Rihanna… in the twisted mind of a sick-and-stupid-fanboy. Haha

      • MC (Benron aka Ashanti is jealous of Beyonce) November 11, 2012

        Except I am not a fan #oop

    • BRIGANTE November 11, 2012

      If you are not an obsessed and sick fanboy like KELLY… that would just make it worse. Because then there is really no excuse for all your ridiculously stupid comments.

      • MC (Benron aka Ashanti is jealous of Beyonce) November 11, 2012

        What? Did Rita not copy Rihanna’s red dress? Did Rita not copy her Umbrella performance? Maybe you need to come out of Rita v***** and see the world for what it is. You need to calm down, because clearly Rita is copying Rihanna. END.OF.STORY.

  21. BRIGANTE November 11, 2012

    Real talent, phenomenal voice! Only Alicia Keys came close.

    “rihanna black madonna” still spending literally all his life on here, using different usernames, and replying to his own comments, lol.
    Every time he gets his ass kicked by other members on this site he switches usernames. What a pathetic loser, haha.

  22. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER ONE FAN! November 11, 2012

    Taylor swift has won 3 awards!!!! Best Female, Best Live and Best Look

  23. THE GREAT LACEFRONCE. November 11, 2012


  24. mkigz November 11, 2012

    It wasnt bad, she has had better performances, but maybe it’s because the sound quality of this video is s***! Anyway I like both Rihanna & Rita and would support both.
    I wish she had performed How We Do, that would have got the crowed pumped! RIP is a little bit boring.



  26. jj November 11, 2012

    I don’t mind her but the end of the performance looks EXACTLY like the end of the Umbrella video though.

    That’s a bit desperate in my opinion.

    • BRIGANTE November 11, 2012

      Why would she want to copy the end of the Umbrella video? Can you give a single reason? What benefit would there be?

      i think her team should be doing a better job in some aspects, but still… only the navy is desperate in my opinion.

      I like Rihanna, you wont see me making negative comments about her, but she basically got the most primitive and retarded fans out of anyone. It is mindboggling. Some of you didnt even realize the Twitter thing was a joke. Haha.

  27. jj November 11, 2012

    And I’d like to note that if this was a RIHANNA performance and it even barely resembled someone else’s music video or performance, the writers for this site would have been ALL over it.

    Just saying.

    • Don’t be fooled November 11, 2012

      True. Rita has a good voice and I like her style, but she needs to stay away from ALL things Rihanna related because it will kill her. Rita…. put your foot down gyal, if your record label give you anything with even a hint of Rihanna influence tell them NO!!!!!!! She needs to find her own path and walk it becaue she has talent.

  28. Yeah November 11, 2012

    What’s “must see” about this? I would rather not watched it….. It was awfull!


  29. Beysbetter November 11, 2012

    OMG DID ANYONE GET INTO THAT RIHANNA SHADE SHE THRUE ON SHADE?????? *DEAD* That UMBRELLA Snippet with the firesparks (Same exact scene from Umbrella Music Video) then she sings “Baby She’s Over” !!!! DEAD LOL
