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 4th #1 hits..

Ariana Grande – Break Up with Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored
Elton John – Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word {Blue feat. Elton}
George Michael – Somebody To Love {from "Five Live"}
Jess Glynne – Don't Be So Hard on Yourself
Justin Bieber – I'm the One
Kylie Minogue – Spinning Around
McFly – Don't Stop Me Now
Michael Jackson – You Are Not Alone
Robbie Williams – Somethin' Stupid
Sam Smith – Writing's on the Wall
Tinie Tempah – Crazy Stupid Love
U2 – Take Me to the Clouds Above

Which of these is your fave? Does your fave artist here have the best song? Is this #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 Michael Jackson and Kylie Minogue who will be progressing to the final.

Michael Jackson – Black or White [ 14 ] ** [18.92%]
Kylie Minogue – Tears on My Pillow [ 13 ] ** [17.57%]

Justin Bieber – Cold Water [ 11 ] ** [14.86%]
Ariana Grande – 7 Rings [ 9 ] ** [12.16%]
George Michael – Don't Let the Sun Go Down On Me [ 6 ] ** [8.11%]
U2 – Beautiful Day [ 6 ] ** [8.11%]
McFly – I'll Be OK [ 4 ] ** [5.41%]
Robbie Williams – Eternity [ 4 ] ** [5.41%]
Elton John – Candle in the Wind '97 [ 3 ] ** [4.05%]
Jess Glynne – Not Letting Go [ 3 ] ** [4.05%]
Tinie Tempah – Tsunami (Jump) [ 1 ] ** [1.35%]
Sam Smith – Lay Me Down [ 0 ] ** [0.00%]

Finalists:
George Michael – Careless Whisper
Jess Glynne – Rather Be

Definitely ‘Spinning Around’ - first time voting for Kylie! ohmy.gif ‘Take Me to the Clouds Above’ second (wouldn’t count this as a number one for U2 though) and ‘Something Stupid’ third.

U2 – Take Me to the Clouds Above [FAVE - but not really because of them!]
Elton John – Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word {Blue feat. Elton} [love the song in either version]
Kylie Minogue – Spinning Around [really great early 00s pop track]
Michael Jackson – You Are Not Alone [nice ballad, very dramatic]
Robbie Williams – Somethin' Stupid [pretty decent duet as far as they go]
Sam Smith – Writing's on the Wall [the best bond theme but most of them suck tbf]
Jess Glynne – Don't Be So Hard on Yourself [not bad but don't really revisit it]
Justin Bieber – I'm the One [never was a big fan, Bieber's parts are the only good parts]
Ariana Grande – Break Up with Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored [bang average]
George Michael – Somebody To Love {from "Five Live"} [unnecessary Queen cover]
Tinie Tempah – Crazy Stupid Love [dreadful]
McFly – Don't Stop Me Now [rather pull my ears off]

Difficult one this week... 'Spinning Around' was such a big comeback single for Kylie. Robbie & Nicole's 'Something Stupid' was a really lovely version. McFly's 'Don't Stop Me Now' was a great cover. But this is literally the only time I'll go for Sam Smith in these polls. 'Writing's On The Wall' is my favourite Sam Smith single and one of my favourite Bond themes!

U2's only multi-week #1 and they're merely sampled on it laugh.gif
Voted Jess Glynne, for me that's her best song.

I think I'll go for Kylie this time but MJ, Robbie and Jess all come close.

Ranking.

Kylie
Michael Jackson
Robbie & Nicole
Jess Glynne
George Michael
Elton & Blue
Ariana Grande
U2
McFly
Justin Bieber
Sam Smith
Tinie Tempah

Don't rate any of the last three as they are all mediocre imo.

Gone for Ariana this time but this is Kylie's best song included so far so not mad at it landsliding (between that and Jess Glynne for my 2nd fave here).

RIP my 4 for 4 streak of voting for the winner but still could go 5 for 5 on my vote advancing as Ariana is currently 2nd (although only just).
