Rage Against The Machine Makes Christmas No 1

It's not exactly the most Christmassy Christmas No 1, but American rock band Rage Against the Machine and their single "Killing in the Name" have triumphed over X-Factor winner Joe McElderry and his debut single "The Climb". It was a close run thing, but eventually the power of a viral internet campaign organised via Facebook was too much for the X-Factor marketing machine. We doubt Simon Cowell will be too upset though, as we're sure that Joe McElderry will be a great success anyway, and would not be surprised to see a McElderry Number One in the not too distant future.

Joe McElderry Wins the X Factor

Our congratulations go to Joe McElderry on becoming the winner of the X Factor. The young singer did look quite shocked to win, but it certainly did not shock us. Joe has an amazing tone to his voice, and his good looks will ensure heart throb status. As Dermot said to him on the show, "Your life is about to change in a big way". Let's hope that fame treats this boy well, as he is undoubtedly already a big hit, and superstar status is probably not far away, which will be a lot to deal with at his age. Still, we're sure he will be guided well by his mentor Cheryl Cole, who knows only too well the demands of sudden stardom, and Mr Cowell will no doubt want to ensure that the huge talent that is Joe McElderry is handled sensibly. The people of South Shields have a new hero, and the girls of the UK have a new pin-up for their bedroom wall ... and Cheryl is no doubt pleased to have been able to guide one of her contestants to victory.

Joe McElderry's debut single is called The Climb, and will be released on 16th December 2009. You can pre-order it from Amazonif you're already a big fan.
