X Factor Champ Sam Bailey On-Track for Christmas Number One

Last Sunday (December 15th), Sam Bailey gave her first TV performance of Skyscraper - the song made famous by Demi Levato - on The X Factor.

A short time later she was crowned the show's winner, meaning the song is now officially her debut single. And like other X Factor winners' first post-show singles, it's selling like hot cakes.

The Official Charts Company recently reported that, as of midnight on December 16th, close to 45,000 copies of the song had been downloaded on UK shores. And that's even before the physical version of the release went onto shop shelves.

The song was, as of December 17th, outselling other UK Singles Chart Christmas number one contenders.

It will be possible to see Sam performing live next year, for example on the X Factor Live Tour 2014, which will also feature certain other contestants from this year's series, including Sam's fellow finalists Nicholas McDonald and Luke Friend.

Hitting a variety of places, like Glasgow, Manchester and London, and starting in February, it could be a great excuse to look into short breaks for early next year!
