No surprises here…..

Via BBC News

Newly-crowned X Factor queen Alexandra Burke has topped the Christmas singles chart with Hallelujah.

Burke won the battle for Christmas number one ahead of the late Jeff Buckley, whose version of the same song was in second place.

It is 51 years since the same song sat at numbers one and two, and the first time ever at Christmas.

Burke’s Hallelujah became the fastest-selling single by a female solo artist, with 576,000 copies sold.

Congratulations Alexandra.

She is about as genuine as a lace front wig, but I wish her the best of luck.

  1. OUCH!! That hurt and you know it did, Ms Mad Newz!! LMAO. But you know whats crazy about all of this Alex Mania?? I think that Leona is a plank, hella boring and the old Joe-effect kicks in again cos I’d rather watch paint dry, but somehow I don’t see Alex doing it big like her Stateside. Leona is definitely a more humble girl. Its a real humbleness, rather than a nervous humbleness that’ll give way to some definite diva moments soon, for sure. Oh and, I don’t see Beyonce letting her go on tour with her either….I’m so interested to see how this story pans out and despite my personal predictions, I wish her all the best too.

  2. HaHaHa, Miss Mad News you are crazy! “Genuine as a lace front wig” ~ that’s hella funny. She can keep her Diva attitude on that side of the pond, the US has enough pretentious, self-absorbed Diva’s wasting space and air.
