Alesha Dixon Hairstyles
Alesha Anjanette Dixon (born 7 October 1978) is a British pop/R&B singer-songwriter, dancer, model and television personality. She first found fame in the all-female R&B trio Mis-Teeq, however she is now a solo artist. Mis-Teeq separated in 2005 and Dixon, signed to Polydor, began recording her debut solo album, Fired Up, but due to poor record sales of her first single she was dropped from Polydor. Subsequently, Fired Up was not released in most territories, including her native United Kingdom.
In 2007 Alesha became a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing and eventually won. Her television exposure led to a successful comeback, which included her signing to Asylum Records, an offshoot of Warner Music Group. She released a second album, under Asylum Records, entitled The Alesha Show, in 2008.
In September 2009 Alesha Dixon became a judge on Strictly Come Dancing, replacing Arlene Phillips. The replacement of Phillips by Dixon gained criticism, as some questioned the extent of her dancing knowledge. Alesha herself dismissed the criticism, describing it as a "storm in a teacup" and refused to stand down as judge.
