    Just wondering what the potential options there are for an alternative to xfactor for xmas number 1 this year. I'd actually like it if Cher won but don't like the idea of a manufactured xmas no.1
    Rage did well last year and I reckon that this song is a contender if it goes viral in the same way, already had lots of coverage on twitter and fb....



    anyone have any other ideas?

    Surfin' Bird would be amazing. And ****ing annoying.

    X Factor as Number One is 4/7, indicating they expect something similar to last year.

    I think people would just end up hating Surfin Bird, though (if not already: I do). I think it should either just be a really good, classic song, or a totally inappropriate one:

    People don't have to go to the extreme of rage again, maybe just choosing the option after the x factor winner would be better. However this year a No.1 by Matt or Cher may be pretty good

    i think surfin bird would be great, incredibly annoying but if they use the video at the start of this thread it would be so entertaining too

    TBH guys.. giving a toss about the xmas number is not cool at all. Don't play their game.. As long as we're thinking about them they win.

    I think the Yeo Valley rap is trying to get to Number One as well... I love the owl in that advert.

    It sucks having to rob the number one like that from the winner of X-factor. If I had been on that show and I had been robbed a number one of the charts, I would be devastated. They should just start the show a week earlier so that they don't mess with the Christmas number one, though I don't care what it is.

    If anything I would like the song to be Last Christmas by George Micheal. Some of you would probably want a Last Christmas version by Jedward or Wagner lol.

    It's like a music dictatorship. Every year it's like an attempted revolution...
    Quite sad that this is how it is.

    The guy who won last year still got a number one the next week. They just want the Christmas spot.
