Published

The 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards did not disappoint!

While all of the stars dressed to impress for music's biggest night at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Sunday, we couldn't keep our eyes off of Rita Ora.

Ora turned heads in a black dress that featured a thigh-high slit, slightly twinning with her bestie, Miley Cyrus, who also donned an all-black ensemble.

While chatting with ET's Nischelle Turner on the red carpet, Ora opened up about her new single, "Proud," which is inspired by stories shared by fans. Ora teamed with with Absolut's The Open Mic Project to create the song, and she said it was all about acceptance.

"It's really all about giving people a voice and I'm so happy I got to do that with music," she further explained. "I think everything is so much more special when you know someone's story."

"You grow with them, you love them," she added. "It's all about the story."
