2015 Race For Christmas Number 1

Grabbing the Christmas number one single has always been a badge of honour for any recording artist but in recent years Simon Cowell and his X-Factor puppets have knackered the once exciting rush to the top spot and this years winner, Louisa Johnson, is currently favourite to be number one on Christmas Day with her (awful) cover of Bob Dylan's (awful) Forever Young.
I wouldn't go rushing to the bookies with your months rent just yet though because if she is to bag this year's honour then she'll have to fight off some stiff competition.
He may well have turned into the Worlds biggest brat but Justin Beiber still has a lot of fans and he has a single , Love Yourself, that will be challenging the X-Factor tune.
The Lewisham & Greenwich NHS Choir have recorded a version of Simon & Garfunkels 'Bridge Over Troubled Waters' and an online campaign to get it to number 1 for Christmas has started strongly.
Everything recently is Star Wars and another campaign has been created to get John Williams and his Star Wars Theme to number 1 and as we are finding out, there are a lot of Star Wars fans out there and with the latest film's release this week, Star Wars fans could take this song to the top.
Liam, Louis, Harry and Niall of One Direction are also aiming for the coveted Christmas Number 1 and they could release 3 minutes of them breaking wind and their fans would buy it so the Directioners could carry the new single to the top of the tree.
Finally, Aurora and the 'Half The World Away' single featured on the John Lewis advertisement is currently sitting comfortably in the charts and could be in with a chance considering almost everyone hears it at least 5 times a day and have been whistling it for the past 3 weeks.
