"An amazing result for Alexandra Burke, and a slightly less amazing but nonetheless rather impressive (saleswise) result for Robbie. Overall, though, what an amazing result for the power of an X Factor live final: the Number One single is outselling the Number Two single two to one, and the Number Two single is outselling last week's Number One by a similar margin."
"Just as 'Man In The Mirror' became an anthem as a world mourned Michael
Jackson, so fans have flocked as one to a particular Boyzone tune. 'No
Matter What' looks likely to storm the Top 100 on Sunday."
"Michael Buble in the Top 10 isn't an ideal scenario — can someone please sort for Sunday, cheers."
"Bad news for Mr Hudson — we're going to let him finish this
album campaign but Estelle's 'Shine' is one of the greatest Kanye-hyped
but ultimately underwhelming Brit comebacks of all time. 'Huddo' looks
likely to enter the Top 30 alongside Editors and Lostprophets."
"X Factor viewers also show that they have incredibly good taste: of the Robbie songs featured in Saturday night's X Factor, it's 'No Regrets' (as performed rather well by Joe) which re-enters the highest, poking its head into the Top 80."
"Leona's 'Footprints In The Sand' also looks likely to make a reappearance in the lower reachces of the chart in the wake of Saturday's X Factor. How much higher do you think it would be if it went by its proper title, 'I Per-romise Yoooooooooooo'?"
"You wouldn't want to be the one who had to tell Dionne Bromfield that her single was struggling to make the Top 100, though we suppose she is definitely more of an 'albums artist'. Speaking of albums: good news for Editors, Chipmunk and Shakira in that order, along with some extra congratulations for The Saturdays, while it looks like Taio Cruz will have to prove himself with another single before too many people stampede towards his album."
