She's certainly known for her enthusiasm when performing, but last night Alexandra Burke looked angry as she took centre stage.

The 23-year-old singer took to the basketball court at Manchester's M.E.N Arena to belt out a few of her songs, and she looked like she meant business.

Joined by several male backing dancers, the X Factor winner strutted her stuff during half time at the game that saw the Standard Life Team take on the U.S.

Burke chose a bright orange dress for her appearance which she wore with a black and gold waist belt and a cut-off denim waistcoat.

Rather than attempt to dance in heels, the Bad Boys singer completed her look with a pair of colourful glittery trainers.

The British star was also sporting her latest hairstyle which appears to have been inspired by singer Rihanna.

Sporting seriously dark roots and platinum blonde hair, Burke failed to make the look work for her despite having curled her hair.

But judging by the photos and her Twitter page, she clearly had a good time last night and wrote to her 558, 261 followers: 'Had so much fun performing 2night! Can't wait2 see the boys play tomorrow!'

However, despite being in good spirits when in public, it seems that Burke may have been feeling somewhat different when behind the scenes.

Following her joyful post, she then tweeted a black and white image with the words: 'I miss the idea of us' late last night, proving she may still be feeling heartbroken over her failed romance with footballer Jermain Defoe.
