Meet Alexandra Burke: Winner of Britain's 2008 X-Factor

It's Official: Britain has STOLEN soul music!

Great Britain just crowned Alexandra Burke the winner of their more successful version of American Idol, X-Factor. This beautiful and talented songbird hails from London, U.K., and surprisingly had no formal training whatsoever prior to her appearance on X-Factor. If you have turned on your t.v. at all in the past year, I'm sure you have already heard about Leona Lewis, who has been taking the world by storm since she won X-Factor last year.

Check out Alexandra Burke singing "Listen" with the Queen Bee herself, Beyonce Giselle Knowles-Carter

If you were feeling that (and I know that you did), you will also enjoy her performance of Rihanna's "Don't Stop The Music"

At this point, you are probably asking: "what does this chick have to do with Great Britain supposedly stealing Soul Music?" Well, THIS IS HOW

Listen to her MURDER Toni Braxton's "Unbreak My Heart"

We haven't had a female artist with this much versatility and talent emerge on this side of the Atlantic Ocean in years!!!
