Rita Ora's Beyond the Lights track "Grateful" may be the underdog in the Best Original Song category at the 2015 Oscars, but that doesn't mean that it can't stun. Tonight (Feb. 22), the "I Will Never Let You Down" singer gave a simplistic yet gorgeous performance of her nominated single, all while stunning in one of the most gorgeous gowns of the night.

Though her singing was on point in her "Grateful" performance, the real star of the show was Ora's gown. The black and white gown was structured perfectly, with the high-low pleated skirt being the most stunning part of the ensemble. With her lips painted a bright red and a diamond-encrusted snake necklace around her neck, Ora was the picture of perfection.

As for the actual music, Ora looked and sounded fittingly grateful, smiling and singing with poise that matched her gown. And all the while, Ora was raised on a pedestal, adding drama to the already lovely performance.

Watch Rita Ora perform "Grateful" from Beyond the Lights at the 2015 Oscars below:

"Grateful" is nominated for Best Original Song at the 2015 Oscars, alongside "Glory" from Selma, "Everything Is Awesome" from The LEGO Movie, "Lost Stars" from Begin Again and "I'm Not Gonna Miss You" from Glen Campbell: I'm Still Here.
