The finalists for The X Factor Celebrity have recorded a cover of Leona Lewisí version of Run (originally by Snow Patrol). Proceeds from the single are going towards Together for Short Lives and Shooting Star Childrenís Hospices.





A great version and that little girl at the end is just heart.gif

I wouldnít say a great version. Itís some mediocre vocals singing over the instrumental of Leona Lewisís cover of it. The little girl at the end saveís it.

I love the original and also Leonas version. This isn't a patch on these 2 but I like it.

To be fair Leona didnít cover it on xfactor, it was the lead single for the re release of her debut album so not really anything to do with xfactor and their producers

That's not an excuse for a lazy, mediocre cover though. They can raise money for charity and put some effort in recording a decent song.

^Exactly, the cause and the song are separate entities and terrible songs for good causes shouldn't be exempt from criticism as they often (especially from Simon Cowell) are lazy and dreadful.

how? with a zero from streams? it's like #700 on Apple and not top 200 on Spotify

Daily iTunes sales for #1 are just 1K normally, this is doing 3 times more, so that's 3k a day but not more... just stop 40 is the max they can get

Itís also nearly 2 days behind on sales opportunity as it came out at 9pm on Saturday. It probably wonít peak any higher than what it gets this week, but at the end of it all itís to raise money for charity and any chart impact is a bonus

Well if this wasn't the third nail in the coffin before (the fourth obviously being that 'The Band' starting next week which is sure to be awful) then it is now. How far things fall in 10 years.

Is this a record for the lowest peaking sales #1 on the official chart?

From 7,689 sales at 99p a pop that is £7612 and 11 pence.

Wow that was worthwhile.
