RITA ORA Pays Tribute To AVICII In Emotional "Lonely Together" Performance
We're barely healing from the pain left behind by Avicii's sudden passing, and Rita Ora just made it both harder and easier for us to entirely move on with a very moving tribute to the late DJ during her BBC’s Biggest Weekend appearance.
The British singer took the stage to perform their 2017 single "Lonely Together"—the last one the Swedish musician produced.
"Thank you for singing that with me," she tells the audience as the song came to an end. "It's always hard for me to sing that, so thank you so much for singing along."

The 27-year-old singer-actor also performed her controversial single "Girls" on the same stage.
