The two female performers dazzled the crowd during MTV's grand New Year's Eve party at Times Square on Monday night.
Cannibal Queen Ke$ha and British bombshell Rita Ora brought some wild party vibe Monday night, December 31 as they performed their hits for MTV's Club NYE 2013. Ke$ha chose to rock the crowd with her latest single "C'mon", while Ora got the audience pumpin' with her rendition of the upbeat track "How We Do (Party)". The show, which took place at New York City's Times Square, also saw performances from Conor Maynard, Sean Kingston, and R'n'B star Ne-Yo.
Ke$ha's new track is a fitting anthem to kick off the New Year. It talks about having fun, enjoying, and living for the moment and one-night stands. This is certainly a much welcome theme as the singer tries to turn her back from her previous hit "Die Young", which made controversy after the Sandy Hook Shooting tragedy.
Meanwhile, voluptuous and blond Rita Ora started her performance with a slow ballad opening for "How We Do (Party)". Dressed in a white spandex body suit with golden leaves on her hair, the 22-year-old Brit sang emotively before she set the stage for some fun dancing and jumping. Ora finished out her performance in the middle of the party revving up the crowd before finally getting back up on stage.
Other notable performances that night came from Conor Maynard with his high-energy number for his single "Turn Around", and Sean Kingston who took the stage with "Rum and Raybans." Ne-Yo kicked off the show with "Let Me Love You (Until You Learn to Love Yourself)".
The New Year's Eve party was hosted by "Jersey Shore" stars Snooki, JWoww, and Jeff Dye of "Money from Strangers". Electronic music duo, The Knocks, served as the night's house DJ.
