X Factor victor Alexandra Burke is everywhere here in the UK at the moment. The 20 year old performed ‘Hero’ sans the rest of the final 12 X Factor finalists – whose collective version recently topped the Official UK chart – at The Millies, an event to honor the nations bravest.
Granted her rendition wasn’t flawless, it definitely has me even more proud that she won. The richness of her tone is reminiscent to that of a certain Ms. Houston, something I couldn’t have ever imagined saying about a British talent show contestant (sad, but true). With there being increasing talk of Simon Cowell prepping Alex for International stardom, it wouldn’t surprise me if by this time next year she’s a star on both sides of the Atlantic.
What do you think of the performance?
