Rita Ora's prank on 'The Voice' backfires after no one recognises her

Well that was awkward...

ita Ora surprised viewers of The Voice Germany by auditioning with her new single - but the judges failed to recognise who she even was.

The 26-year-old, who was a judge herself on the British version of the show in 2015, was disguised as an ordinary contestant singing her track 'Your Song'.

Ora received a standing ovation from the judges and audience as she finished her track, before things got a little awkward.

"I am a 26-year-old aspiring musician from London... I can't tell you, I am so nervous it's not even funny," she told the judges.

"It sounded almost like the original," the first judge responded.

"Are you a double?" asked the next.

Ora then insisted she was genuinely herself before the judges all laughed and expressed what an "honour" it was to have her on the show.
