UK Chart Roundup: Leona Lewis Puts A Nice Bow Up Her Christmas Box

Leona Lewis' actually-pretty-decent holiday album Christmas With Love (it's the first of hers that I don't mind playing the whole way through) got a boost from her performance on The X Factor last week, and jumps up from #25, where it debuted, to #13. Likewise, her single "One More Sleep" flies up 31 positions to #3.

But, seriously — did you see the dancing trees during her performance?

"One More Sleep" now marks Leona's ninth Top 10 single (not including the 2010 Helping Haiti charity cover of "Everybody Hurts") and her first Top 5 hit in the UK since 2011's one-off single "Collide."

Back on the album chart, Robbie Williams is back at #1 with Swings Both Ways. When the LP first debuted at the top four weeks back, it became the 1,000th #1 on the chart.

And as mentioned earlier, Beyonce's new, self-titled album debuts at #5, after selling 68,000 copies in just two days.

The UK Top 10:

1. "Somewhere Only We Know" - Lily Allen *3 weeks*
2. "Hey Brother" - Avicii 
3. "One More Sleep" - Leona Lewis
4. "Happy" - Pharrell Williams
5. "How Long Will I Love You" - Ellie Goulding
6. "Of The Night" - Bastille
7. "Trumpets" - Jason Derulo
8. "Let Me Go" - Gary Barlow
9. "Story Of My Life" - One Direction
10. "The Monster" - Eminem feat. Rihanna
