Winner Of X Factor 2008
Stan James: 1/6
The X Factor is gearing up to its semi-final, but do you think that the buzz will be enough to catapult the winner to Christmas number 1?
Terry Wogan and Aled Jones
Stan James: 9/2
Terry Wogan and Aled Jones sing Little Drummer Boy / Peace on Earth to raise money for Children in Need. It is out on December 8th. Click here to watch the Youtube video. It is the most cringeworthy effort of the Christmas singles.
Leona Lewis is attempting to take the charts by storm with “Run”.
Take That’s latest single “Greatest Day” flew to the number one spot in the UK this last weekend. Can they fend off the contenders until Christmas?
Peter Kays’ alter ego may have already topped the
fictitious “Britain’s Got The Pop Factor And Possibly A New Celebrity Jesus Christ Soapstar Superstar Strictly On Ice”, but can he elbow Take That out of the way in order to hit the number one spot?
Stan James: 20
The Quo release “It’s Christmas Time” on December 8th, making it their 75th UK single!
