The X Factor 2008 Grand Final Winner Alexandra Burke's Performances Of Hallelujah And Duet With Beyonce Knowles, Listen.

Alexandra Wins The X Factor 2008!

Alexandra Burke won The X Factor last night, after some truly outstanding performances. Her duet with Beyonce was incredible, made even more so by how absolutely in awe of her idol Alexandra seemed. Beyonce's reassuring hugs after their breathtaking performance of "Listen" were touching, and their duet really blew Boyzone and Eoghan Quigg, and Westlife and JLS out of the water.

JLS and Alexandra went head to head in the final part of last night's show, each singing a version of the classic Leonard Cohen song "Hallelujah", which will be released as a single by Alexandra and is available for download already! The differences in the two performances had one commenter in my Live Blog asking if it was the same song, but I'll let Alexandra's performance speak for itself. Enjoy, and let me know what you think, will you be buying it?

Watch the emotional moment Alexandra found out she had won after the jump, just read more.
