Example: Allez, aide-moi

This example from the top of the page confuses me. Why is Allez conjugated in vous form and Aide is in tu form?

Bonjour Lily, I think that may be a typo. Tu m'aides avec mes devoirs?-Non.-Allez, aide-moi avec mes devoirs! Are you helping me with my homework?-No.-Come on, help me with my homework!

Bonjour Lily, Allez isn't really a conjugated verb there, it's a filler that means "come on." Allez, aide-moi ! Allez, on va partir.

I have the same question... 'Allez,"  is in the vous form, but what follows is in the tu form "aide-moi"... Is it still grammatically correct to use "Allez" (as in Come on...) or is it better to say "Vas-y"...?
