Our version of American Idol – called “X Factor” – comes to an end this Saturday. It’s the show which Leona “Bleeding Love” Lewis won two years ago.
There are two solo artists, and one group left in the running…and my money’s on a London girl called Alexandra Burke. She’s got the flair of BeyoncÃ© – and an extremely strong voice. And her mum was the lead singer in Soul II Soul.
The other two finalists aren’t so great. The young Irish teenager Eoghan Quigg’s only it is because the whole of Ireland is voting for him, and the boy-band JLS are okay I guess, but not too consistent. So if Alex doesn’t win it’s a fix!
Anyway – Alex is possibly doing a duet with BeyoncÃ© on Saturday, so if that happens it could be electric and guarantee her a win. So just in case she does become the latest “Leona”, you can say you saw her first on Parlour…Alexandra’s “X Factor” performance after the jump!

To get your view from across the pond, Miss London Party will be your guide. Every week, sheâ€™ll be casting her eye over the big stories happening with the Brits. From fashion to entertainment to current affairs to politics, sheâ€™s got you covered. A Londoner born and bred, sheâ€™s worked as a journalist for two of the UKâ€™s biggest broadcasters, and is currently presenting daily TV news â€” so sheâ€™ll be giving you an inside view on events. In her free time, she likes sitting in the pub on a Sunday afternoon, going through the newspapers, drinking a glass (actually a bottle) of wine, and tucking into a good olâ€™ English roast. Cliched, but true! She plays netball, swims and is ever so slightly addicted to trashy US shows on her cable TV.
