Out to prove she is a Diva who can sing and dance at the same time, Alexandra Burke took to the stage at the finals of the Irish version of The Voice to perform Let It Go. It's the second single to be lifted from her, as yet unreleased, album Heartbreak On Hold and it follows the UK top three hit single, Elephant.
The voice was there on the night, and she had the steps down, but the overall package was strangely unpolished, and lacklustre. This wasn't helped by the dance crew, who were dressed to look "street" and "hip" but instead gave the performance a feel more akin to that of a rehearsal. It was a vibe propagated by the main vocal, which contained way too much silence and space within it that ultimately messed with the flow of the song.
Folks may say I'm being too hard, or critical on Alexandra Burke, but she can do better than this. Even the audience didn't seem impressed, remaining wooden and po-faced throughout. Heck, even Pinocchio wouldn't have to come life for this, and we all know how much he wanted to be a real boy!
