    These are UK’s stars I guess.

    We don’t want fake Alexandra Burke on this show. The woman is vile, she supports bullying and kills off her lovely fans. That did everything she wanted. She has no morals. So think.

    This woman is so ignoring. She’s horrible. She’s like a bad infection she never goes away. She was so ignoring on the X factor. No I don’t want her on this show,

    This was good and bad mood for her. It’s good in the sense that she will get paid and make more music as an independent artist, but bad in the sense that she will get booted off either first or second (before or after Aston) as people are crying that they are professional dancers.

    For the person that has posted 3 (badly written) comments under 3 different names. I am yet to see Beyonce keep the hive in check or GaGa and her monsters so….

    “…remarkable career in on the British equivalent to Broadway.” Erm no. She appeared in The Bodyguard in the West End after the leader actress (Beverley Knight) left the role. She hasn’t done anything since except local theatre tours

        She was in Sister Act as well.

    Alexandra Burke is the only black person in recent times to win a British reality show. Plus I prefer strictly to xfactor so can’t wait to see her. Hopefully she doesn’t get the Pixie Lott treatment and is booted out too early.
