A "Show-stopper" Opening
The London-born singer, 24, had all eyes on her as she opened the spectacular ceremony in a risqué black cut-out thong leotard, sheer stockings with black piping running along the central panel, and satin heeled boots.
For the glittering event that celebrates the best of music from around the world, Dua had changed out of her black floor-length red carpet dress and appeared perfectly in her element, surrounded by her dancers, who were clad in eye-popping neon yellow bodysuits.
The killer performance had excited fans, who have posted rave reviews on social media:

Spilling Details on New Album
Speaking about her new song, she said at the award ceremony:
“It’s very disco-orientated. I guess I got a lot of inspiration from 'Electricity' and 'One Kiss'; it felt like the natural progression. The album is really nostalgic with new sounds.”
