The race for the Christmas number one is always exciting. For a long time, the festive charts were dominated by X Factor winners but with the rise of social networks came a bit of backlash and campaigns to keep these manufactured acts from coveting the top spot. Over the past few years we have seen Rage Against the Machine, Military Wives with Gareth Malone and The Justice Collective all take the honours, but who is your money on this year? Sing Bingo want to know!
Sing Bingo have chosen ten of the biggest stars from the music industry who they believe have a chance of being this years Christmas number one. As long as you are one of their funded players, all you need to do is log into your account before midnight on Saturday 21st December and vote for the artist you think will be named as Christmas number one on the BBC Radio One website. You can only vote once, and the acts are:
- The X Factor winner
- Susan Boyle and Elvis Presley
- Lilly Allen
- One Direction
- Richard and Adam
- Olly Murs
- Jonathan and Charlotte
- The Pogues
If the act you have chosen ends up being number one, you will win a share of 250,000 Loyalty Diamonds. The prizes do not end there though, because all players that vote will be entered into a prize draw. The lucky winner who will be drawn at random, will win tickets to see their favourite artist in concert in 2014!
