At the audition stages of 2008′s X Factor, the ultimate winner Alexandra Burke made a little pact with herself. ‘I said to myself that if I didn’t make it through to the live shows then I would seriously reconsider where I was going to go with. This was about proving something to myself. That music was the thing that I was born to do.’ Thankfully Alex was voted through to the categories/celebrities,-speakers-talent/famous-pop-artistes/”>live shows and, as they say, the rest is history.
As Alexandra was crowned champion, she was still recovering from the joy of performing with her idol Beyonce. Three years on and Alexandra Burke is no longer duetting with Beyonce. She is competing with her.
