Rita Ora returned to New York City for a packed show at Highline Ballroom in Manhattan on Monday night. Originally scheduled for late October, the concert had to be rescheduled due to the effects of Hurricane Sandy. Roc Nation’s blonde pop star didn’t disappoint as she performed cuts off her ORA debut album, with a live band in tow. At one point, the Kosovo-born Ora switched things up a bit, covering one of her favorite songs in Kendrick Lamar’s “Swimming Pools (Drank).”

The night served as Rita’s final show of 2012 as her “Radioactive” U.K. tour begins January 28, 2013 in Manchester.
