Pink tribute artist Zoe Alexander loves her day job but decided to audition for The X-Factor UK to discover her own sound and identity. Her audition was going pretty well — she was chirpy and the judges loved her style. However, the panel thought her cover of Pink’s “So What” was too close to the original and gave her a second chance to put her own spin on a different song.
Unfortunately, Alexander blew her second song but didn’t take too kindly to the constructive criticism the judges gave her. Although they all voted no, they told her she could become a better artist if she took some time to discover her own sound. That’s when the tantrum started. Alexander was completely unprofessional. She not only fired off a false excuse (“You guys told me to sing Pink”) she abrasively threw her microphone offstage and pushed away a camera crew.
For some reason her dad decided to drag her back on stage (perhaps so she could apologize) but all girl did was swear, swear, swear. If the judges weren’t already confident in their decision I’m pretty sure Alexander’s bad attitude sealed it.

Last night I didn’t intend to watch So You Think You Can Dance but then they sucked me in like they always do and were CRUEL to me. My cry count ended up being a whopping three and I felt the tears coming at other points in the night too.
One of my shameless cry-fests happened when 29-year-old mother and dancer Bree Hafen auditioned for the judges. Of course, she retold her touching story about putting dance on the back burner while she was raising her two beautiful children. Although she feels guilty, she decided to take some time to realize her true potential [cue violins].
That had me going already, but then Nigel had to go and invite her two adorable kids to the judging panel so they could properly watch their mom perform and cheer for her while she danced to Ingrid Michaelson’s “So What.”
I’m not done. After they handed her a plane ticket to Las Vegas they let her two-year-old toddler dance on stage and she was beyond ADORBZ. She wore a pink tutu and made pretty much everyone cry, including Mary Murphy and Lil C (well, Lil C on the inside). It’s G-rated, Hallmark entertainment at its best.

Pink is ready to get the party started. Again.
The pink-haired songstress has announced plans to release a fifth, as-yet-untitled studio album on Oct. 28, reports E! News.
The debut single off the new album, “So What,” is due out in early August. The album will mark the first release of new music since calling it quits with husband Carey Hart earlier this year.
Born Alecia Moore, Pink is rejoining Max Martin and Dave Meyers on the new album. Both men worked with her on her previous release, “I’m Not Dead”, in 2006.
The video for “So What” will debut next month on MTV.
