Watch: Alexandra Burke Performs National Anthem At NBA Game

Published: Thursday 17th Jan 2013 by Sam

Taking a brief break from recording her third studio album, Alexandra Burke performed tonight at NBA’s invasion of London town.

Unfazed by the thousands in attendance at the Pistons vs Knicks game, the X Factor graduate thrilled with a melismatic take on the UKs National Anthem ‘God Save The Queen’. Watch Ms. Burke soar after the jump…

And that, friends, is why Alexandra remains one of the most gifted vocalists the UK has produced in years! We’ve, quite literally, never heard the song performed that way. But oh did Alex nail it. Stellar.

Your thoughts?

  11. RISTANNA———– January 17, 2013

    cute but she needs to be making hits now instead of wasting her time at all these free and not interesting media spots, get over to the USA and make some worldwide hits giiiiiiiirl

  12. BRANDY IS FIYAH January 17, 2013

    Wow. Beautiful. She made it her own and that has NEVER been done before on the UK’s national anthem I don’t think, shame she’s getting so much hate on Twitter for it!

  13. Monstarebel (F** Boy) January 17, 2013

    Oh but I thought she was blacklisted in the uk? Gurl please

  14. skintightjeans January 17, 2013

    That poodle on her head distracted me…..

    • WTF January 17, 2013

      Thought she looked gorgeous actually…

  15. Flop Cheeta Whora gave Rob an STD from her 20 guys January 17, 2013

    She is getting hate in teh UK cos they do not like confident black women out there. Black women are suppose to stay in their place.

  16. MISHKA January 17, 2013

    It’s real shame she never blew up like she was supposed to.

    She needs to go to the US and give it another try, whatever it takes. That voice deserves to be heard on the right songs.

  17. WTF January 17, 2013

    She sounded amazing. 1st time hearing the soulful version of the most basic of national anthems. Very impressed.

  18. MaZ January 17, 2013

    She’s the definition of a true star!

    Hopefully her next record will focus more on her vocal abilities than the previous one.

  19. antertain January 18, 2013

    She MUST use her vocal gift properly on her next album.
    Powerhouse beast singer.

    Still listen to her session on The Splash.

    She gave God Save The Queen a soulful and us national kind of twist to it.
    Love it

    This is what the U.K national anthem needed! After years of hearing it sung in such a dull monotone way when our American counterparts have an anthem that is preformed in such a variety of ways and also sounds inspirational, Ms Burke slayed and may have also just made history! Hopefully the Anthem will be continued to be sung this way or at least inspire artists to be adventurous with renditions.

    • Janice January 18, 2013

      I agree and i think she blows Leona out of the water vocally (my personal opinion)

  21. Musician January 18, 2013

    Awfull, trully awfull. Heard a thousand better voices down the pub, ridiculously uneccesary vibrato and peculiar phrasing….. stick to impressing the pop music buying public, average age 9, average I.Q. under 60

  22. Scott January 18, 2013

    Alex always slays, it is time she got her dues and was an International star.

  23. Jonathan Gardner January 20, 2013


    Never heard our anthem done like that.

    That was really beautiful! Go Alex sis!
