Alexandra Burke

Alexandra Burke won the fifth season of The X Factor in 2008. The 22-year-old singer is a rising star in England but most Americans might not yet be familiar with her work. Burke is the first The X Factor contestant to go on to a judging panel role, serving as a judge for auditions of So You Think You Can Dance.
