Alexandra Burke - Start Without You



Ms. Burke delivers total pop fabulousness in this video. She absolutely has the vocal chops to pull the quirkiness of this song off. If it were a weaker singer, the song would be a total fail. It's the strength of her voice that makes this work. The calypso feel of the chorus just makes your toe tap and the introduction of Laza Morgan gives it that "irie" feeling of Caribbean music. Alexandra is the fifth season winner of X-Factor, Simon Cowell's talent show that puts American Idol to shame. I hope she can break into the American music scene but if not, I am totally happy with youtube and import CDs.

Oh did I fail to mention the dozen of so shirtless men all over this like white on rice? That's my gift to you.
