The singer appeared on the BBC One evening show with her fellow Voice UK coaches, dressed in a plunging white suit.
The outfit received a mixed reaction from viewers, with some people complaining that the suit was inappropriate for family tea-time viewing.
The BBC has confirmed that 424 people have complained about Ora's fashion choice, and the broadcaster said they "appreciate that tastes vary".
