Video: Alexandra Burke Performs ‘Start Without You’ At Summertime Ball

Published: Monday 26th Jul 2010 by Sam

Pop star Alexandra Burke took centre-stage at Key 103’s Summertime Ball in Manchester last night, performing her new single ‘Start Without You’.

Peep the 21 year old’s showing after the jump…

With Ms. Burke’s recent T4 on the Beach performance of song being so solid, it was always going to be difficult topping that  showing – particularly at such a small-scale event and with such a stone-cold audience. That said, she held her own – even if she was (uncharacteristically) out of breath at times. Good stuff.

Your thoughts?

    She’s a good performer Leona should take notes.
    I hope Alex continues to succeed.
    Oya and the quality of that video is flawless. 🙂

    I rate the fact that she always sings live and puts on a performance. I think as she recorded the video for the silence she should release a double A side and then start on the second album.

    FLLLOOOOPPPP

    This song is my jam at the moment!
    I don’t know why Syco are dressing her like a h**. That top is a flippin’ NO NO.

    Her vocals were on point, tho.

    EH HEY I’M LIKE A BEAST!

    That was Alex’s second performace of the day she travelled from Leeds where she performed at Party in the Park infront of 70 thousand people to then go and sing in Manchester.She did a great job and SWY has a caribbean flavour that is why she is dressed like that.

    Alex looked and sounded great, the crowd was not dead she got a really good reception.Please download Laza Morgan This Girl if you are in the UK, it is on the Step up 3D soundtrack.

    Why should she take notes? Leona doesn’t need to take any notes from Alex at all. Leona’s doing better then her still so I don’t think Leona needs to worry about what Alex is doing.

    If anything, Alex should be taking notes from some people on how to make herself a star on her own and not blend in with every other music piece of trash out there. She has no distinct style or anything really. She’s just the Beyonce/Rhianna rip off right now.

    With that said, she looks too desperate with this s***.

  18. Sam July 26, 2010

    Get a clue Mike or go away, where is Leona doing better she has not had a Top 10 hit in the UK, Ireland or Europe this year and her singles and album have been out of the Top 100 for most of the year.Alex is a far better performer than Leona and has songs that are doing well.She has a far better voice than Rhianna so stop sounding dumb.Alex is just 21 so her identity and style will develop.

  19. MIA July 26, 2010

    did y’all know this b**** can’t even sell out a venue holding 3000 people? LMAO

    I like t6his song but why are people always using the same melodies or whatever in their songs these days?
    She also looks ok in this video usually she picks clothes that don’t suit her body type at all… smh.

  22. TOP NOTCH DIVA July 26, 2010

    I can tell she is very talented! I couldn’t see the video well bcuz it wasn’t clear but this girl has a bright future ahead of her. On thing I did notice tht I thought was odd was the fact she had male backup dancers she needs female backup dancers instead. It also looked like she didn’t have much room to dance around on the stage.

  23. UGh July 26, 2010

    she’s ONLY 21? oh ok

  24. Kahari July 27, 2010

    The American edition of Overcome hasn’t even touched grounds over here yet. Even though she can sang, I think Simon has plans of brushing her up over in England first so that can sell more records. Although her album went straight up the U.K. Top Billboard 100, if she’s going to appeal to the urban market in America, she has come harder than just techno-popish material. Her voice has a raspy grit that works well over rhymatic soul records. However, Simon has a niche for stripping away the soulfulness of all his artists he signs (like Leona, she coulda been the next Teena Marie…Christina Aguilera took that slot, LMAO!) and providing them with watered down material of bubble gum records that we all can mumble the hook to. I don’t like this new song “Start Without You” at all. The melody reminds me of a reggae child song I grew up with that I can’t quite catch the name of. Hopefully, if she does drop an album, she doesn’t pull a Craig David… -_-…

    Leona has the personality / stage presence of a block of Wood. Alex has better stage presence.
    And Leona’s second album did mildly well / flopped esp compared to her first one whereas Alex has the biggest selling single from an X-Factor winner & her album [released the same year as Leona’s] is still on the charts and the singles all where Top 10 hits so she’s doing fine. I personally find Beyonce annoying & Rihanna can’t sing worth s***, Alex can sing and doesn’t annoy me so I really don’t know who she’s “ripping off”.

  26. JJMia July 27, 2010

    I dont understand – people are going on about alex as the best performer in ages. Her dancing is not that great, she is actually really stiff and crap. This song is beyond rubbish. Why does she always need a rapper – cant she do it on her own lol

  27. diisfo July 27, 2010

    For someone whos fans are saying she is a great singer and dancer – it looks like she cant really sing and ‘dance’ that well lol. The performance in the video was really bad – she has a long way to go.

  28. UmYa July 27, 2010

    Nobody said she was the best performer in ages, she’s only been around for about a year she obviously isn’t going to be a seasoned veteran on stage. And the quality of that video is tragic so I don’t know how you could judge anything based on that.
    Well when you don’t have $imon Cowell up your ass making you out to be the second coming of Christ, you have to find other ways to make your presence known to all markets i.e having quest spots from other artist [in this case a couple rappers] that way she taps into the urban market ad maintains a Pop appeal. Use your wits people 😉

    I don’t understand why people will hate on this 21 year old girl who is just trying to do what she loves and willing to improve what she does to satisfy her fans. I can only see it as JEALOUSY.
    Personally, i love Alex and Leona but i love them differently, I would listen and watch Alex perform any day and i would listen to Leona’ songs any day (without watching her of course).
    The only thing i would disagree with Alex is her dress sense when performing, Most of the time she gets it right but sometimes, it just doesn’t suit her and i wont put it on her. They always have a Stylist right? anyway, don’t we all get it wrong sometimes?
    I love this song and can’t wait for the video to come out and for the release.
    Alex, you are great and keep doing what you do and ignore the haters.
