UK Chart Roundup: The Justice Collective Take Christmas #1 From 'The X Factor'

A bunch of people — including Robbie Williams, Paul McCartney, Paloma Faith, Beverley Knight, Melanie Chisholm, Eliza Doolittle and Holly Johnson — covered "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother" to raise cash for charities that benefit the 1989 Hillsborough football disaster, and it's now #1 in the UK. (Sorry, whoever that guy is who won The X Factor the other week and whose name you won't remember, either, by February.)

Guy Chambers produced the single. And I'd totally hit it with that Andy guy from Lawson who opens the song, vocally.

The UK Top 10:

1. "He Ain't Heavy..." - The Justice Collective *new* *1 week*
2. "Impossible" - James Arthur
3. "Scream And Shout" - will.i.am feat. Britney Spears
4. "Stay" - Rihanna feat. Mikky Ekko
5. "Locked Out Of Heaven" - Bruno Mars
6. "Gangnam Style" - PSY
7. "Troublemaker" - Olly Murs feat. Flo Rida
8. "I Knew You Were Trouble" - Taylor Swift
9. "The Power Of Love" - Gabrielle Aplin
10. "Diamonds" - Rihanna
