Alexandra Burke Performs 'Bad Boys' on 'X Factor'

Alexandra Burke, returns to The X Factor (she won the reality TV singing competition last year) and performs her new single “Bad Boys” with rapper Flo Rida on Sunday (October 11).

The 21-year-old British singing sensation has her debut album, Overcome, being released next week (October 19). When asked to describe her album, Alexandra shared, “There’s more up-tempo tracks on the album that there are ballads. The ballads on there are very, very strong. The up-tempo tracks are very loud, fierce and beastly! When I recorded the ballads I cried, they’re very emotional.”

    Those of us who saw it live on TV first and not on youtube think that she was lipsynching major portions of the song. I thought that it seemed impossible for her to be doing some of the dance moves that she did, and still not have a single note out of place, so I do think that she did lipsync most of the song.

    But it’s a fantastic single otherwise for Alex, and her album will be great as well.

  • KAH

    she mimed.

  • Susan

    Alex is very talented and will go along way-even those people who watched her perform in the audience said that she sang LIVE over a backing track.A mimed performance would have been flawless and she did a great job but hit a few flat notes.She is a great live performer and does not need to mime.

    It was pre-recorded people! Anyone who has watched any of her X Factor peformances CAN TELL the difference; her voice doesn’t sound like that live. You’re in denial if you think that was live. Funny how the mic went at the end for her interview isn’t it?

    It was a good peformance though. She has gourgeous eyes!

  • Tha Phoenix

    As I can understand how some people could have mistakenly gotten the idea that she mimed, I will now state several facts.

    1) She is singing along to a backtrack – all singers do this, even Queen B.

    2) You can hear that she is mildly out of breath at some points.

    3) She had one or two flat notes.

    4) Besides, Simon being her mentor, he never allows his acts to mime, esp when they’ve been on X Factor. Remember just last year she sang and danced at the same time without sounding like many of the crappy new artists we have today. Watch her ‘Don’t stop the music’ or ‘ Toxic’ performances for proof.


  • JimmyD

    @Tha Phoenix:

    But Same Difference were one of Simon’s acts and they mimed when they were on

  • Buzz

    Does it matter whether she mimed or not? She’s made it from singing live on xfactor to making music, it doesnt change the fact that she is very talented.

  • 100mph

    Girl has Skills~

  • pradalicious

    ooorgh!! still cant believe she was the winner last year..duh~

  • Clumsyflic


    and it’s been confirmed that she DIDN’T mime- she sang live over a backing track

    Love her <3

  • chelsie

    The performance was excellent.

    There was a possibility she mimed BUT there definitley were live vocals.

  • Lis Cunha

    I watched it live on TV and it was SOOOO mimed! NO WAY she was singing. I’m sorry guys.
    you could hear the difference when it was Robbie Williams’ turn to sing.

  • Lis Cunha

    2:49 she moves her mouth but no sound comes out.. funny huh?

  • Lis Cunha

    3:28 she STOPS moving her mouth but there’s still sound coming out.. not from the backing track, but actually her main vocals. lmao

  • darrentaylor

    @Pining for Chris: maybe because before she got chucked up she handed it to a dancer, use your eyes! great LIVE vocals alexandra, amazing performance! flo rida was great aswell.

  • chelsie

    Lis Chuna, has it not occured to you that she was singing on top of the vocals.
    And lets just say she mimed, there is eveidence she also provided a live vocal as well.

  • Pining for Chris

    It was NOT live, you need to use YOUR EYES and EARS!
    Cheryl Cole will not be singing live either…probably due to dancing also.
    I don’t give two shitts if she was thrown up, she could have gotten it handed back to her. BRITNEY did the SAME thing, because she was miming also.
    Stop being in denial, it doesn’t make her any less of an artist; she has proven she can sing. But don’t give the girl credit for something she didn’t do.

  • Dannielle

    hi she is a beast singer i love her so much i went to the x factor live show hahahahahahhahshah it was so fun

  • Chelsea

    She is a very talented person, and i love her new song “bad boys”. As much as i loved her performance on the xfactor she was definately miming!, although there’s nothing wrong with the fact she pre recorded it. Theres no way she could have sang live and had that much energy, she was out of breath at some points although her voice stayed the same throughout. She is excellent though and i love her :) but she did mime the performance, big deal. It was still fantastic!

    and..Whoever keeps saying alexandra burkes mentor was simon, it was actually the great “Cheryl cole”.

    Lovee cheryl aswell shes a great role model.
    Can’t wait to see what both cheryl and alex produce in future.
