Hot Video Alert: Alesha Dixon - Drummer Boy (Live on Tonight's The Night)
Mis-Teeq's Alesha Dixon continues to impress me as promotion for her new single, "Drummer Boy" gets underway. The single which started out as a cluttered, noisy mess of percussion and shouting has turned into pop magic before my very ears. I honestly don't know what happened. Perhaps I've beaten myself over the head enough times? Whatever the reason is, I now find myself shimmying and shaking along screaming out the lyrics. Not a pretty sight. TRUST ME.
In her first (?) televised performance of new Shama "Sham" Joseph-produced single Dixon is full of energy and impressive Drumline-inspired choreography. The 2007 Strictly Come Dancing winner (the UK version of Dancing With The Stars) showed her dancing chops, appearing on the BBC's Tonight's The Night, hosted by actor/singer John Barrowman. The show, which helps make audience members' wishes come true, welcomed Dixon who not only performed her new single but performed with a young audience member, singing a duet of The Zutons' "Valerie." How nice of her. While THIS rendition definitely pales in comparison to the Amy Winehouse version (not to mention The Zutons' version), Dixon does fine, as does Lauren Simister, Dixon's young duet partner.
"Drummer Boy" is due out on September 6th featuring remixes by Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP, Benny Benassi, Crazy Cousinz, Swindle and MoDrums. Check out the performance below!
