Charley says VIDEO! Alyssa – Get On Your Feet

So remember how Friday I was raving about Axelle Aerts being the one to watch in The Voice Van Vlaanderen?

Yeah, she got voted off.

Axelle’s performance of Jessie J’s “Domino” got off to a shaky start when she came out on stage having forgotten to put in her in-ear monitors. Despite redeeming herself once she finally popped them in, the public decided not to send her straight through to next week. After the final sing-off Axelle’s coach Natalia decided she would eventually find her way to pop stardom anyhow, so put through “now or never” contestant Yass. Lame.

As mentioned before, it’s a small consolation, but a studio recording of Axelle’s song is available for download on iTunes as well as being on the first “The Voice Van Vlaanderen” compilation that’s in stores right now.

But not at all hope is lost for first week evictees! Axelle, record companies, take note!

When Idool 2011 narrowed its contestants down to 10 finalists last year, Alyssa Luypaert seemed to be the perfect pop star in waiting. Until she got booted off in week one. Boy, I sure know how to pick my early favourites…

Alyssa was picked up by SonicAngel and has just released her debut single “Get On Your Feet“, a dancepop anthem that suits her in a way her disappointing Idool performance of “Waiting For Tonight” sadly didn’t. The track was co-written by Ingrid Mank, Idool vocal coach, singer-songwriter and the woman responsible for the greatest talent show group single ever.

So, I guess what I’m saying is:

– Someone give Axelle a record deal, please
– Alyssa has released her debut single
– The chorus of said debut single reminds me of the Friends clip below. (The jury’s still out whether or not that last one’s a good thing)

Alyssa’s “Get On Your Feet” is available now on iTunes and Spotify.
