Alexandra outsells Leona with Hallelujah

Leona who? X Factor winner Alexandra Burke became a record breaker today when her début single Hallelujah beat the previous download record held by former Factor winner Leona Lewis.

The single hits the shelves on Wednesday but has been downloaded over 80,000 times since Alexandra scooped the top spot on Saturday night. Bookmakers' predictions that Hallelujah would be the Christmas No1 look to have been right on the money.

Simon Cowell has promised to make this year's winner an even bigger star than Leona stating that Alexandra is "more versatile". Does it mean the end for Lewis? Does anyone really care? Answers on a postcard.
