Reality bites!

9 01 2009

Despite becoming the first British female solo artist to sell over 1 million singles in the UK, Alexandra Burke is only earning £250 a night for live appearances according to the Daily Mail.
Her debut single Hallelujah outsold Leona Lewis’ debut and is set to become the best-selling single by a female artist this decade, ousting current record-holder Kylie Minogue who has sold 1.1 million copies of Spinning Around.

Alexandra is currently performing alongside Laura White, Eoghan Quigg, Diana Vickers and Rachel Hylton as part of the X Factor tour. Her co-stars will receive a similar amount but boyband JLS will only earn £100 each per night for their performances.

Tax, a 20% management fee and expenses will also be deducted from their earnings.

Tickets for London’s O2 arena start at £28.50 meaning a sold-out performance could earn organisers over half a million pounds.

Are the promoters of X Factor live being greedy or are this year’s contestants lucky to be there in the first place?
