Now that Ariana has officially been given a seventh UK #1, let's see how she does against other similarly big names! There's a mix of both classic and current names so it could get interesting.

Every performer with seven (no more, no less) UK #1s will go head-to-head to see which of these had the best. Here's each of their 2nd #1 hits..

Ariana Grande – Bang Bang
Elton John – Sacrifice
George Michael – A Different Corner
Jess Glynne – My Love
Justin Bieber – Sorry
Kylie Minogue – Especailly for You
McFly – Obviously
Michael Jackson – Billie Jean
Robbie Williams – She's the One
Sam Smith – Money on My Mind
Tinie Tempah – Written in the Stars
U2 – The Fly

Which of these is your fave? Does your fave artist here have the best song? Is their first #1 their best? Simply vote in the poll and the top 2 will go through to the grand final. A new round will appear every 2 days, so get your vote in quickly!

++

Congrats to George Michael and Jess Glynne who will be progressing to the final.

George Michael – Careless Whisper [ 18 ] ** [22.22%]
Jess Glynne – Rather Be [ 17 ] ** [20.99%]

Kylie Minogue – I Should Be So Lucky [ 11 ] ** [13.58%]
Ariana Grande – Problem [ 6 ] ** [7.41%]
Justin Bieber – What Do You Mean? [ 6 ] ** [7.41%]
Tinie Tempah – Pass Out [ 6 ] ** [7.41%]
Elton John – Don't Go Breaking My Heart [ 5 ] ** [6.17%]
McFly – 5 Colours in Her Hair [ 4 ] ** [4.94%]
Sam Smith – La La La [ 3 ] ** [3.70%]
Michael Jackson – One Day in Your Life [ 2 ] ** [2.47%]
Robbie Williams – Millennium [ 2 ] ** [2.47%]
U2 – Desire [ 1 ] ** [1.23%]

OK this is my toughest poll for a while, so many songs I love on that list. 'Especially For You' is a childhood classic, 'Sorry' is still my favourite Bieber song and as a McFly stan 'Obviously' is up there as their best. 'Billie Jean' is obviously an all-time classic too and I've always had a soft spot for 'Sacrifice' (still can't believe that was Elton's first solo number one!)

I wish I could have voted for all five of those but eventually I went with... 'Especially For You' because of the memories that song evokes wub.gif

As was mentioned in the last thread, it's a shame The Fly turns up here because it really is an excellent track that's as underrated as it can be while still being a #1 hit, and that's not even qualifying it ending Bryan Adams' reign of terror. But yeah Billie Jean wins obviously.

my vote's gotta go to Jess Glynne again (not just blind stanning, 'My Love' genuinely is one of my all time fave songs), although I won't begrudge Billie Jean being the obvious frontrunner of the poll, as that is my 2nd favourite here (and my fave MJ song).

1 Jess Glynne – My Love
Michael Jackson – Billie Jean
Tinie Tempah – Written in the Stars
Justin Bieber – Sorry
Elton John – Sacrifice
Sam Smith – Money on My Mind
Ariana Grande – Bang Bang
Robbie Williams – She's the One
George Michael – A Different Corner
U2 – The Fly
McFly – Obviously
12 Kylie Minogue – Especailly for You

Meh at Careless Whisper but glad Rather Be is through.

Michael Jackson – Billie Jean [FAVE - eternal classic]
Robbie Williams – She's the One [brilliant ballad]
Justin Bieber – Sorry [don't love it quite as much as at the time but still a banger]
Tinie Tempah – Written in the Stars [this one was a grower for me, prefer it to Pass Out these days]
Jess Glynne – My Love [not a huge fan but it's still decent. Right Here >>>>>]
McFly – Obviously [average song but plus points for the nostalgia factor]
Sam Smith – Money on My Mind [pretty meh but at least better than Stay With Me]
Kylie Minogue – Especially for You [luckily her better #1s will be appearing soon]
Elton John – Sacrifice [couldn't hum it but prefer his voice to George & Bono)
George Michael – A Different Corner [couldn't hum it]
U2 – The Fly [see above]
Ariana Grande – Bang Bang [awful awful awful]


Well this is a pretty tragic list. Only care for the top 3 and some right duds in there...

I know it's too late to make this change when we're already on the second thread but I think if 2 songs are advancing from each round of this it would have made more sense to ask people to vote for 2 songs instead of just one thinking.gif

As it were the right 2 songs were the top 2 of that first thread so yay x

Michael Jackson easily wins this round for me, my 2nd choice would be Tinie - this is an even weaker list of songs than the first poll though.

As I was the only voter for U2 in the last round, I've done so again - The Fly is my second favourite song in this round, although Billie Jean is rightfully way ahead in the poll at this stage.

Michael Jackson wins this one for me. But George Michael and Justin Bieber weren’t too far behind.

'Billie Jean' for sure! 'Obviously' would be second, I think it's my favourite McFly single tbh!

A Different Corner is gorgeous, definitely in my Top 5 from this list - sad not to be able to vote for it. Had to go for the bop that is Sorry by Justin Bieber cheeseblock.png

This is actually a really solid bunch imo. It's between MJ and Robbie. Think 'Billie Jean' wins though.

My rank would be.. MJ > Robbie > Kylie and Jason > Tinie Tempah > George > McFly > Bieber > Elton > Ariana > Jess > U2 (not one of their best for me) > Sam Smith.
