Alesha Dixon - The Alesha Show

Alesha Dixon

Alesha Dixon is a dream date. She seems to find everything funny, is easy on the eye and, as we all know, can more than handle herself on the dancefloor. The singer-turned-model-turned-dancer-turned-singer is a jack of all trades, which is The Alesha Show's main problem.

Curated in the Xenomania pop workshop - famously responsible for the sound of Girls Aloud - Dixon's long-awaited UK debut record sounds exactly how you might expect the first of the famous five's solo debuts to sound. Cheryl, we're looking at you.

Rowdy opener 'Let's Get Excited' is certainly feisty enough for the quintet, while you'd be forgiven for thinking Mrs Cole was actually singing the bubblegum-pop chorus of 'Cinderella Shoe'.

In addition to the Girls Aloud routine, it turns out Alesha can also do a pretty decent impression of the UK's other great girlband, Sugababes. 'Chasing Ghosts' - the record's best moment - and 'Can I Begin' provide exactly the sort of sultry pop-soul we've come to expect of Keisha, Heidi and Amelle.

Such appropriation means it's hard to put a finger on the sound that Alesha Dixon owns. Of course, there's the lead single 'The Boy Does Nothing', a Strictly Come Dancing mambo-infused ceroc soundtrack, but other moments of originality are harder to find. While her barking Mis-teeq roots are briefly let out of the cage for 'Play Me' and 'Hand It Over', there just aren't enough moments to distinguish The Alesha Show from a pastiche of Noughties girl pop, rather than the real deal.

A decent first impression, but not one to last.
