Who would have thought she'd be an international superstar just six years later?!

Rita Ora may be one of the biggest musical acts out of Britain in 2015, but back in 2009 she was just a regular ol' teenager.

Well… she wasn't exactly average — she still had that voice!

In fact, Rita actually auditioned to be the UK representative at Eurovision with the song Get Here when she was just 18 years old… and she won!

Luckily for her, a wise-beyond-her-years Rita turned down the opportunity to sing an Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber original at the European competition because she could tell her career would probably be over at that point.

Seeing as she's currently a judge on X Factor… we'd say she was right! LOLz!

Just like Taylor Swift, Madonna is blessing her fans with celebrity stage cameos on her international Rebel Heart tour!

But unlike the Bad Blood singer, the stars who get on stage with Madge are treated to a nice spanking!

Not only did the Like A Virgin singer smack the booty of Katy Perry, but took a spanking herself from Jessica Chastain!

One Direction Covers Torn By Natalie Imbruglia — AKA The Very First Song They Ever Sang As A Band On X Factor!

| Filed under: X FactorOne DirectionHarry StylesLouis TomlinsonLiam PayneNiall Horan

no title

Is this the end of our favorite boy band?!

With each song that One Direction released these past two weeks leading up to Made in the A.M. we got the slight feeling that the boys were trying to tell us something.

And as if titles like Love You Goodbye, History, and End of the Day weren't obvious enough… their latest live performance basically put the writing on the wall.

Video: 1D Covers Rihanna, Kanye, & Paul McCartney!

You know how 1D got their start as a band on X Factor back in 2010??

Well, the first song they ever sang as a group just so happened to be Torn by Natalie Imbruglia… which they just performed Thursday at BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge.

Seems like a pretty good bookend to wrap up an iconic career as bandmates, right?!

Ch-ch-check out 1D's last performance before Made in the A.M.'s release on Friday (below)!!!

Jennifer Lawrence Had A Sweet Reaction To Olly Murs' Awkward Flirting! Check It Out Along With 20 Other Celeb Interviews That Went Totally Wrong!

| Filed under: Film FlickersLove LineX FactorLiam HemsworthHunger GamesJennifer LawrenceJosh Hutcherson

Like most of us, Olly Murs has Jennifer Lawrence on the brain!

The X Factor UK co-host recently appeared on BBC Radio 1's Breakfast Show, where he revealed to Nick Grimshaw that he'd love to kiss the Hunger Games star!

Unfortunately (or fortunately), that admission put Olly in a bit of an awkward situation when Nick arranged for them to both interview J.Law herself about Mockingjay — Part 2 with Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth!

Things got a bit cringeworthy in the interview (above), because Olly was totally smitten by the Hollywood starlet — but all in all, he played it pretty cool! Mostly…

Luckily, the interview didn't go down in flames like that time a reporter spoiled the fate of J.Law's fave Homeland character! Watch that moment and other painfully awkward celeb interviews (below)!

It's almost time for the holidays — which means transplants across the world will be traveling back to their places of origin to be reunited with family and friends!

Songs about coming home are usually slow-paced tearjerkers like I'll Be Home For Christmas — but Rita Ora and Sigma teamed up to deliver a delectably upbeat homecoming anthem appropriately titled Coming Home!
