In an amazing turn up for the books last night Alexandra Burke carried off the performance of Halleluia by Leonard Cohen – but made most famous and poignant by Jeff Buckley.
She did not murder it after all. Unlike JVC who sent it to hell and back.
It was a smart move to largely echo Buckley’s acoustic guitar treatment of this fine song and only resort to the old Whitney’s at the very end.
Well done Alexandra. You are free to go with only a suspended sentance.
Good bit of greeting going on here as a result of her win…
