Let's do the right thing and help them win. Following a week-long head-to-head, the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS choir's charity single, A Bridge Over You , finished the chart race with 127,000 sales and downloads, almost 31,000 sales more than the multimillion-selling popstar.

If you prefer the classics then MTV Music on Channel 350 may be a good bet, but the best option would be Channel 355's MTV Christmas , which is a dedicated channel to all your favourite festive hits.
The choir's mash-up " A Bridge Over You " on Friday finished nearly 31,000 copies ahead of the Biebs in the singles competition. The delighted choir told the OfficialCharts.com: "We are absolutely overwhelmed and couldn't be any happier!" "It's just ridiculous that it's the NHS versus Justin Bieber , but that's all in the jolliness of it.
The battle for Christmas No 1 was the closest seen since Rage Against The Machine's scintillating victory over The X Factor's Joe McElderry in 2009 with their song, Killing In The Name. Speaking to the OfficialCharts.com the choir said: "We are absolutely overwhelmed and couldn't be any happier!" 'A massive cheer for the NHS, thank you!' He added : "This is what it's all about".
Apple declined further comment on Swift's announcement . Considering 1989 is now 2015's second-best-selling album despite its 2014 release, a tie-in film seems like a relatively safe bet for Apple. Apple will exclusively release a concert video of pop star Taylor Swift's recent world tour through its music streaming service, Apple Music. Launched in June, Apple Music is Apple's attempt to carry its dominance of digital music through its iTunes store into the era of music streaming.
