Susan Boyle Is Classy And All, But What About *This* Version Of 'Wild Horses'?

How many artists in the U.K. Top 10 this week does Simon Cowell have a finger in (or up)? Far too many to count, children.

Cowell's main glove this week is Susan Boyle, whose I Dreamed A Dream set a record by having the best opening sales week for a debut album in U.K. history. The LP sold 410,000 copies. Here in the U.S., I Dreamed A Dream is expected to move well over 600,000 units when the new chart is announced later in the week.

As if that wasn't enough to monsoon your knickers, Boyle's rendition of the Rolling Stones' "Wild Horses" debuted at #9 in the singles chart. Meanwhile, remember when that hot kid sang "Wild Horses" in Camp? Good times. That trashy flick was kind of the precursor to Glee.

What the hell ever happened to him?

Back on the U.K. singles chart, ot much else going on, other than Mariah Carey flopping her way to #19 with "I Want To Know What Love Is" (at least it's a hit somewhere), and Lady Gaga and Beyonce's "Telephone" entering at #30.

The U.K. Top 10:

1. "BBC Children In Need Medley" - Peter Kay * new* *1 week*
2. "You Are Not Alone" - The X Factor Finalists 2009
3. "Whatcha Say" - Jason Derulo
4. "Meet Me Halfway" - The Black Eyed Peas
5. "Bad Romance" - Lady Gaga
6. "Russian Roulette" - Rihanna *new*
7. "TiK ToK" -

8. "Fight For This Love" - Cheryl Cole
9. "Wild Horses" - Susan Boyle *new*
10. "Happy" - Leona Lewis

    I love Camp! He was such a gay tease in that movie, it really upset me lol. He made up for it though in that Ethan Green movie because he played a homo in that movie. ;) I really loved his girlfriend's version of "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" in Camp.

    Camp! I'm actually so gay that I own this movie. No idea what happened to Vlad, but Anna Kendrick ("Ladies Who Lunch") is in New Moon and has Oscar buzz for his role with George Clooney in Up in the Air. She's awesome.

    Camp! How i adored that movie - i have searched it out once again to play thanks to you. Nice to know that the x factor can't get dirge fests like Susan and Mariah to number one in the singles charts (yes I know i liked Mariah's song but I'm bored of it now)!!
