UK Charts round up

X-Factor champ Joe McElderry’s song ‘The Climb’ and Rage Against The Machine’s ‘Killing In The Name Of’ are both available to download from today, but we won’t know who wins the real battle to become Christmas No.1 until Sunday December 20th. In the meantime the British charts don't stop for no fool with Lady Gaga’sBad Romance’ bathtub performance on X-Factor paying dividends and securing the No.1 single status last night.

Peter Kay’s Animated All Star Band’s Children In Need charidee medley drops into the number two slot (no pun intended) with Rihanna’s ‘Russian Roulette’ completing the top three.

In the long player chart SuBo’s collection of OAP faves ‘I Dreamed A Dream’ shows no signs of budging, remaining triumphant at number one and preventing a double top for Lady Gaga whose album ‘The Fame’ sits pretty at number two.

Once again the singles and albums charts are dominated by X-Factor related artists, with eight out of the top 5 single/albums all having been performed on the ITV show this series. Lets hope Rage Against The Machine can cause the biggest upset for the money making judge this weekend.
