If every one of her twitter followers bought her album, she'd be sorted. That'd be 500,000 sales. Unfortunately that won't happen.

Didn't Simon do a deal with capital over Joe's airplay in return for The Wanted performing on X factor? Couldn't a deal similar be done for alex?
Not sure where this story came from - I have read it twice on DS this week - but Joe never got any airplay from Capital so if a deal was made Capital didn't stick to their side of it

She's out with her family in Thorpe Park today....
I doubt she'd be doing that if she had a performance tonight.

She won't be performing as she'd have to be in the studio by now for dress rehearsals....but she might just be attending the final.

Ugh all the producers on HOH are such a downgrade. How can she go from Red One and Stargate to Steve Mac and Cutfather.

maybe it was recorded yesterday or some day before /but probably someone from the audience that day would already tweet about it)

I think Tonight could be a Euro smash imo....the beat is quite well known and they know Alex there...it would be silly not to try with a track like that...

Never have I thought Alexandra fans would stoop down to mere bullying because they 'have nothing to lose'. Sad.

Sadly I have to agree with this.

I agree.

Her management aren't stupid, they will obviously be trying to get her on the big shows, but if they have better guests lined up they aren't going to want her and there is nothing more they can do. I actually laugh at some of these comments about if they managed her they would be able to get her on all of these shows.

Omg who cares. Get a backbone. I certainly don't care what people think of me, especially that flop manager.

I don't care what people think of me either

But bullying someone because she appearently doesn't do her job well, is just the lowest of the lowest you can go.
Remember how much hate Alex gets? And how all of us react to that? Bassicly the people tweeting the girl are doing the exact same thing.

That girl might not even have influence on the situation, she can't force her on any show, neither can she force radio to play Alex's songs. We don't know what's going on behind the scenes, she might even work her arse off, to make this album a success. Do you really think she'd slack? It's her job that's is on risk too, you know

I am certainly not lying.

I read one of the posts on the BGT forum that she was on tonight and took it as face value. I then came on her Appreciation Thread to see if there were any details.

If my info is wrong, I accept that. But I am certainly not a liar.

Please use your words carefully when you throw around accusations like that.

I hope you're right. Rebecca was a surprise one too. We all never know.

I reckon the deal was for Olly. NOT Joe. Who was more viable and commercial (due to the material of course)?

Here's the thread (second post) that mentions Alexandra. It claims Wikipedia as it's source - yes I know Wikipedia is a poor source. I'm just sending this link to refute the accusation I was lying.

No worries. It was just a RUMOUR thread. She might be. She's a star (not entirely liked but nonetheless) also Subo and Diversity too. It makes sense. Also it could've been filmed in advance, all they have to do is keep the focus on her on the stage. She doesn't have to tweet everything.

So can I. It is not enough. If she was massively successful globally, public opinion would change drastically.
