New Video: Alexandra Burke – ‘Start Without You’

Published: Thursday 19th Aug 2010 by Sam

The video for Alexandra Burke‘s new single ‘Start Without You’ premiered a few moments ago. Check it out below…

{UPDATED}

While the video, which sees the X-Factor alum serve up her trademark sass, is a commendable effort, it’s hard to play down the fact that it doesn’t necessarily capture the essence of the song as well as it could have. There’s no doubt the changing of the single’s release date from August to September was the catalyst for scrapping the original summer-esque video. Yet, watching this, has me thinking sticking with the first incarnation of the video may have been the way to go.

    THIS ISN’T THE VERSION I WANTED TO SEE! But apparently the fun one with the parade etc is the American version.

    As long as they’re saving their money for Alex’s American invasion and her upcoming tour, I’m just fine. The Queen B and Jay are spreading the word about her over there and B said she’ll help her out as much as possible too.

    Genius.

  11. Vanessa August 19, 2010

    Love the video and alex looks smoking hot and so pretty.The guys are cute to

  12. FUTURESTARdelux August 19, 2010

    LOL THESE GAGA STANS ARE DELUSIONAL, YOU COULD HAVE HER SAT ON THE FLOOR EATING A PIZZA AND SHE’D BE “COPYING GAGA” LOL

  13. SnijanaFleur August 19, 2010

    It’s engaging, so it does its job. The song continues to grow on me.

  14. matt August 19, 2010

    the only thing similar to Alejandro is the underwear the men are wearing! Love the song but the video just doesn’t match it!!

  15. Jamie August 19, 2010

    Arrgh about time!!! i am not dissapointed : ) i just hope they do release the u.s footage against this track when the launch her in America. I think the movement and shots are preety good on this vid, capturing her true sassyness

  16. K4Kenzo August 19, 2010

    kinda dull .. its got a summery / dancehall vibe and this vid absolutely doesnt match .. where all the brothers at ? such a white video .. #no shade , im juss sayin

  17. Tiff August 19, 2010

    what was that?

  18. bomaj August 19, 2010

    this is like a 2010 version video of “physical” diggin it

  19. Si August 19, 2010

    Love Alexandra she is such a talent….. a great voice, great performer and she’s got soo much attitude and sass (in a good way not in a cocky way!!!!)
    Plus I have to say she is looking fine in this video. I wasn’t too sure of the song choice at first but it is a grower and is soo damn catchy. I hope this does well for her. She so far racked up two solo number ones, a solo number one album with her debut, one top and one top 5 hit here in the UK so the girls done well. I wish her continued sucess. She needs to tour soon… I will so be there.

  20. JonathanGardnerTV August 19, 2010

    NOOOOOOOOO! The video = hot mess.

    It does NOT go with the song and that makes it seem like a mess – even though it’s alright.

    I agree that her swag is on point but much of the video LOOKS LIKE AN ADVERTISEMENT FOR THE 2012 LONDON OLYMPICS L M A O with all the acrobatics and gymnastics!!

    Such a waste of money…they should have stuck with the original video and used the money for promo!!!

    Alexandra-Burkes-next-single-N­eeds-to-be-The-Silence

    Type this on facebook, then like it to get the silence as the next single for alex

  22. Zoli August 19, 2010

    I love the song, but unfortunately can’t say the same about the video… I think the first version would have been much better to be released!

  23. Huss August 19, 2010

    seeexxxxyy!! this diva is on fire…

  24. Andarieg0 August 19, 2010

    Nice song, OK video. Alexandra has a beautiful voice. The vid kinda reminded me of Gaga’s “Alejandro” with the half naked dudes in the skin tight short shorts! Let’s great creative people! Leave the black and white back drop vids and let’s step outside the box!

  25. truth August 19, 2010

    this song is good apart form the chorus sounds like some cheesy holiday resort bluecoat song

  26. Landen August 19, 2010

    Shes Definitely Gonna Be Taking some things Over

    Over Here.

  27. joshj August 19, 2010

    I LOVE THIS VIDEO OMG ITS BEEN A WHILE A VID MADE ME FEEL THIS HAPPY ALEX DID HER THING!!! LOVE THE SONG TOO…SHE IS BY FAR N AWAY MY FAVORITE BRIT ARTIST!! ROCK ON BG!!

  28. OddOne August 19, 2010

    @ FutureStarDeluxe and all other twats who regard the people that actually only LIKE Lady GaGa and her superior musical qualities and talents over s*** from the Excrement Factor, as nothing but utter ‘Stans’ and ‘Little Monsters’… even if the ‘Start Without You’ video is actually very s*** and does borrow heavily from ‘Alejandro’ (accidental or intentional) and does absolutely nothing but come across as a bunch of hairless gymnasts flexing and working out (clearly pop music isnt aimed at straight guys anymore) and the fact Alexandra’s lace outfit also borrows heavily from GaGa’s red one (minus the wig) which must obviousy mean I’m a ‘Little Monster’ or and ‘Stan’ for pointing this out…

    Shut the f*** up. I like GaGa. I’m not a stan. And I most certainly am not one of her little monster whores.

    You might wanna get a match to relight your fireworks right there…

    Knob-ends.

    SHE SLAYED!!!!!!!!!

  30. Alex Overcome August 19, 2010

    Beautiful! Sassy!! Fun!!! Peace & lots of love xoxo

  31. GreggJarv August 19, 2010

    What the hell was that!

    America roars with laughter at the UK.

    Girl needs to do something with those lips, maybe move them down to where her jugs should be.

  32. OnMyHaterAde August 19, 2010

    Chile this video reminds of Olivia Newton John’s “Let’s Get Physical” video, but the song isn’t as catchy has Olivia’s.

    Try again Alexandra…try again.

  33. Liz August 19, 2010

    utter crap

  34. TheBaddestBitch August 19, 2010

    She looks BETTER THAN EVER.

    It”s a HIT, nice concept, i agree “Physical” 2010.

    Burke domination keeps going stronger!

  35. ADE August 19, 2010

    I saw this on TV and it’s such a f****** bore fest, she could have come so much harder with the video, it really doesn’t fit the essence of the song. I’m so disappointed. Hated it! But she looks so stunning in the video I can’t deny that, and her moves are on point!

  36. UGh August 19, 2010

    UM, the dancing and the song don’t go together.

  37. WoW!! August 20, 2010

    this is a dumb song..she can sing but please get better material

  38. gary August 20, 2010

    OMG!!! this video is awful. What were they thinking! its just her with a bunch of gay gymnasts,
    who would have okayed this ? simon cowell?
    She looks good but i dont see the point of all those guys with her, if shouldve been a s*** video instead it seems that someone was just in the mood to hire some topless guys stretching and bending over

  39. Alana August 20, 2010

    I really dont like it, im sorry. its just nonsense, too cheesy, makes a joke out of her. pity.
