Burke: I want to sing at Glasto

Alexandra Burke wants to perform on the summer festival circuit

Alexandra Burke would love to perform at Glastonbury festival.

The former X Factor winner, who has just begun her first headline tour of the UK, is keen to bring her All Night Long show to the summer festival season.

Alexandra told the Daily Star: "Last year I didn't have a band. This year I do, so I'm ready - I would love to play Glastonbury, V Festival, Wireless and the Isle of Wight.

"I need to get involved - I have a hot band."

The 22-year-old Bad Boys singer has been working on her second album in New York and revealed that while she is keen to include some ballads to show off her big voice, she is making sure there are plenty of dance tracks to move to.

Alexandra said: "I love my up-tempo stuff so I don't want to lose that as people know me for it. But I'll also have special ballads, maybe three at the most.

"I really want to take risks like I did on this tour - it's a taster. You're absolutely going to hear it this year, I'm not wasting any time. After the tour I'm taking two days off to sort myself out, then I'm going to finish the album."
