As seen on Britain’s Got Talent, the rising burlesque sensation Talulah Blue, from Leicester, proves to Amanda Holden and the whole of the United Kingdom that she is much more than just a ‘nice bum’.
Exposed to dancing from a young age Talulah Blue fell into the organisation of various Burlesque shows, showcasing talents such as Anna Fur Laxis. Although the shows were successful, Talulah’s observation of Burlesque performers quickly grew into the ‘want’ to perform herself; however nerves kept this inevitable star from putting her stiletto mark on the world of Burlesque for a further three years. As soon as she hit the stage in late 2010 Talulah’s passion flared, her dances radiated elegance and poise making her an instant success.

As a designer, the costuming portion of Burlesque is Talulah’s first priority, the art form presents an opportunity for
performers to express their creative abilities, an aspect Talulah finds crucial to being a successful performer, she said: “
Looking the part hides a lot of other flaws when dancing”.

Miss Blue recently appeared on the hit UK show Britain’s Got Talent, where she performed her now legendary white fan dance in front of the judges and the nation, American judge and former Baywatch star, David Hasselhoff, said: “This is why I left America. You certainly have talent! I found that very charming, very sexy and very entertaining”. The graceful fan dance reflected the classic side of burlesque proving the art is more than just ‘glorified stripping’.

As well as a reputable dancer, Talulah is also an established business woman, creating and selling various hand crafted burlesque themed items and accessories, such as pasties and feather fans, executed with delicate detailing. Items are sold on her own website ( that she herself regularly updates with new items and performance details.

Talulah Blue will be performing at the Dragstalgia event at Santa Pod Raceway in Wellingborough taking place on July 16th-July 17th. The event, in association with Milkcow Magazine, will feature drag racing, classic cars, live music and Burlesque. Talulah will be performing on the Saturday evening along with other performers such as Aurora Toxique and Emmanuelle Claire.

For more information and tickets for Dragstalgia visit the event’s page on the Santa Pod Raceway website

There is no sign of Miss Blue slowing down until she has conquered the burlesque scene. This British star will soon charm the world round to the intoxicating effects of the art, creating a storm wherever she goes.
