Well thats ruined my night!!!!!!

Post by Guest on Thu Nov 12, 2009 2:25 pm

X Factor winner Alexandra Burke has dropped out of turning on the Christmas lights in Leeds, but will still appear in Manchester on the same night.

The singer was originally due to perform in both cities on Thursday, flying between the shows by helicopter.

Organisers Real Radio would only say "contractual commitments" meant Burke, 21, could no longer take part.

Pixie Lott will now be topping the bill in Leeds with Mini Viva, Lorraine Kelly and Santa also appearing.

In a statement Leeds City Council said: "Whilst it is unfortunate that Alexandra Burke is not appearing, the show will be packed with great acts and multi-award winning artist Pixie Lott will headline."

'Bad manners'

Local radio station Real Radio, which was responsible for contracting artists for the Leeds show, said: "We are very sorry that due to contractual commitments Alexander Burke will not be able to perform at this year's Leeds Lights switch on."

Neither the council nor Real Radio would say what the contractual issues were.

Burke's fans in West Yorkshire have been angered by the singer's decision to stay away.

Speaking on Radio Leeds, Mike from Haworth said: "It's bad manners if nothing else. I think local radio stations should ban her records."

Burke will still be switching on Manchester's Christmas lights in Albert Square on Thursday.

She is also scheduled to switch on Birmingham's lights on Saturday.

Burke recently reached number one in the charts with her debut album, Overcome.

Are you sure it’s the Sugababes? Is it not just going to be 3 random girls put together and given the moniker "Sugababes".

Don't think I've ever seen Pixie Lott, not really in tune with popular culture at the moment.

Stop using my 606 comments against me.

What I'm trying to say is who actually has a clue who the Sugababes are anymore? Only one I know is that Heidi bird and that’s only because we used to ring her up when we were at Uni.

I always thought it was funny how one of the original ones "went to the toilet" while at a festival and never went back. Apparently the sexy one (is it Keisha or something?) is a real bitch and she's the main reason there've been so many changes over the years.

You sure is wasn't because they were searching for someone with talent?

Why would they do that when the requirements for that group consist of the complete opposite?

I have no idea who is turning on our Christmas lights, probably some electrical maintenance guy.
