woo part 8! I agree with all the talk above me about her management. I am so excited she is on The Voice of Ireland this weekend. I just hope the BBC see it and realise they NEED her on the UK version! And then ofc BGT would top it all off
Yeah I think her being on The Voice Ireland is really encouraging for a possible UK slot...let's hope she's secured it...plus BGT would be brilliant on top of that

I mean the basic stuff they should cover they are not, I'm not even talking about extra carefully marketed and strategised promotional slots. She needs to cover all bases, the young, adult contemporary, she should really go on jools holland show her deep contralto is devine and urban radio. I'd love for like Burke Monday's where the previous week ppl tweet her songs they'd love her to cover n she does. She could do them in her bathroom. Soo much more they could do to drum up a buzz n remind everyone how amazing she is.


I like her Huffington post blog that's real cute.

On a positive note I truly adore let it go and I'm loving the video loads now!!!
!!!!!!
Daivd, Alex, Mama Burke, Tweam or anyone else that has contact with Alex, this!!!!

But more like Once a month

Esmée Denters covers songs too, just to keep herself in the eye a bit, not really working but still

I hope she performs the breakdown version because I wanna see that awesome choreography....I was surprised that she didn't perform that version at KOKO...

Or.....she might strip it back and do an acoustic version of Let It Go for The Voice....that would be hot...and an amazing way to remind people of her stunning vocals...

From wikipedia:

"The Corrs musician Sharon Corr, Westlife member Kian Egan, Eurovision finalist Brian Kennedy and The Blizzards's lead vocalist/guitarist Bressie are the coaches."

I agree....but I think it would be really cool if she did the first verse and chorus acoustic, then broke out into the full proper version complete with hot choreography and the works...

Preorders and radio support. It's starting. Maybe she has European promo for LIG as the lead single. There's still enough time for LIG to be a big european hit before mid june album time.

I think she has!

Might be one of the reasons she didn;t know the European promo dates yet, as they didn't know when the album would be out around that time yet :O

I think RCA have her firmly focused on the UK for now imo, and tbh she needs to be right now....hopefully she can get on some big shows in the UK too...

If she's going to launch anywhere else, I think the smartest place to try would be the US, because even if she has moderate hits there, EU and Australian/Asian chart success will follow...

I think they need to forget the UK. She is hated by a more than normal amount of people for a celebrity. I searched her name on twitter and I couldn't find one nice tweet about her from the past 20 minutes. She is never going to gain respect back so she needs to move on to the US. She needs to be on the phone to Beyonce imo. lol.

Maybe....I hope not, but Europe will help ie global hype, Glad You came is huge here and in the US but jack shit in Europe. It can all kick off before August if they work fast. She can have a launch here and then Europe and the US. Maybe what she was waiting on was Usher too. The duet and all, and his release dates.

I agree...she trends worldwide for hate on Twitter, and I don't care what people say, she gets far far beyond the normal levels of hate for anyone in the public eye....only the likes of Justin Bieber and 1D get more and I'm pretty sure they don't get death threats....

I'm just concerned about the US deal situation....no-one close to Alex is talking about it....when she does an #AskAlex I think we should try and find out what is going on, but she'll probably just ignore it.

Even a top 20 in the US would be amazing for her profile...

Yeah.. I find it annoying how she doesn't even give us a clear answer. I asked her if she had a record deal in the US and who it was with and she replied with "yes" lol. I just hope things get going soon. I think RCA and her management are being pretty lazy with it.

Yeah she could get hits easily. I am too. She needs to be considering that as do RCA. And I agree with the twitter thing, and in general too, people hate her. My cousin even said it's like people live to hate Alex. Jessie got #23 with PT and only was on 1 TV show. But it's radio that's the issue, and I reckon Alex could get support.

I'd say #20-27. She's done well but has fluctuated on itunes quite a bit.
