This is Dua Lipa like you've never seen her before.
On Thursday (December 10), Dua performed stripped back versions of her biggest hits, as well as a classic Christmas song, during our virtual iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Presented by Capital One. Standing in front of a giant disco ball, Dua kicked off her set with an acoustic version of 'Levitating.' She followed with 'Don't Start Now', which was the first single off her sophomore album Future Nostalgia.
The 25-year-old pop star also took some time out of her set to talk about her favorite holiday traditions. "My mom makes a lot of traditional Albanian food so that's something that I love to learn," she said. "I do really enjoy cooking. The last time I cooked Christmas dinner was the year before last. I like to make turkey, roast potatoes, Brussels sprouts, cranberry sauce, Yorkshire pudding, lots of gravy all over. But I feel like this year might be a veggie Christmas."
"I hope we can have that human connection again and all be together and celebrate because I know that's what we miss most," the songstress said of her hopes for next year.
Dua was able to keep that connection with her fans alive this Christmas by inviting dozens of them to virtually duet with her on John Lennon’s classic "Happy Xmas" for the Capital One Holiday Jam. The special duet was definitely one of the highlights of the night.
