Allez, dépêche-toi !

Why is it Allez when it is followed by the tu form of the verb? Why isn’t it Va?

Hi Tanya, 

Allez,  is often used as 'come on' just for emphasis.

Allez, je te paye un verre Ok, I'll buy you a drink 

Allez, vas-y !Come on, go ahead !

Allez, dépêchons-nous! = Come on, let's hurry !

Allez, au revoir! = OK then, bye-bye!

Allez, dépêche-toi !

Why is it Allez when it is followed by the tu form of the verb? Why isn’t it Va?
