Alexandra Burke Performs ‘Broken Heels’ At Royal Variety Performance

Published: Wednesday 16th Dec 2009 by Sam

The Royal Variety Performance 2009 has literally just came off the air here in the UK. Burgeoning diva Alexandra Burke was one of many acts who graced the stage at London’s Royal Albert Hall to perform in front of the Queen. Burke, 20, performed her new single ‘Broken Heels‘, which you can watch above (Tidbit: she’s not miming, the video lags a lil bit. I’ll update when a better one becomes available).

It appears my prayers and fasting have gone a long way, as Alex has FINALLY started performing another song other than ‘Bad Boys’! Thank flipping-goodness for that. About the actual performance, Ms. Burke continues to tear down the house each and every time she performs. I’m particularly impressed with her ability to ‘sell’ what she’s performing. Regardless of how sub-par the material she’s performing starts out, I find myself feeling the track that much better after seeing her perform it live (see: this, and ‘Bad Boys’). A feat only world-class performers are capable of.  It really is so exciting seeing Alex deliver such calibre of performance. I mean if this is what she’s dishing up now (first album campaign), one can only wonder what we’re in store for as she continues to hone her craft. Gwan!!!

What do you think of the performance?

    i still can’t help but compare her to leona … and i just am not feeling her ever since those promo pics and these songs she’s putting out.

    still not interested in her

    Excellent performance. It saddens me A LOT of people aren’t feeling the song. She should release “The Silence” next, I think.

    Alex is definately performing way above the song’s quality but i defo see this song as a single success for Europe and Asia.

    sidenote: It’s great to harmonise to)

    I love The Silence but i love They Don’t Know even more either one can be singles as she actually could bring out a ballad after two up-tempo singles..

    A Brillient performance by Alexandra, the more I hear Broken Heels the better it gets, what a voice. Ballad or uptempo, she always gives a great performance.

    Seriously do your research this event was in Blackpool not London. If you worked for a newspaper you would get fired for stupid mistakes like this.
