Beyoncé  has revealed that X Factor winner Alexandra Burke rejected her offer of a support act slot.

The pair performed together on last series’ finale in December, and Jay-Z‘s missus was so impressed with the 20-year-old victor that she invited her to open shows on her UK tour.

The ‘Crazy In Love’ singer told celebrity website Sugar Slam: “Alexandra was a doll. A complete gem.

“Actually, I wanted her to open my tour for me, but she hadn’t finished her album, so she couldn’t do it.”

Beyoncé continued: “They didn’t tell me she was a big fan of mine. In rehearsals she was just so incredibly overwhelmed and I was so happy to sing with her. She’s so talented and beautiful and her voice is so soulful.”

Alexandra’s debut album is due for release later this year, while Beyoncé’s I Am… tour gets underway in Newcastle tomorrow (Friday 22 May).
