Christmas No.1 Contenders: Who Will It Be?

There are some surprise entries this year but they ALL have a chance to grab the Christmas No.1 spot.

Ariana Grande & Santa 2013

It's that time of year again. Of all the No.1s throughout the year, this is the one that the biggest artists in the world REALLY want to nab! Here is your ultimate guide to the contenders for this year's Christmas No.1

Idina Menzel & Michael Buble- 'Baby It's Cold Outside'

It's a Christmas classic with a new twist! You may recognise that gorgeous voice from a little movie called 'Frozen'. Queen Elsa herself Idina Menzel has teamed up with Michael Buble to warm you up this Christmas.

Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars - 'Uptown Funk'

Uptown Funk gon' give it to ya! Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson have waited until the end of the year to drop one of the biggest songs of the year. It may not be the most festive of songs but surely it has No.1 written all of it? Plus any man who can pull off a pink suit jacket and hair curlers deserves some love at the top of the charts.

Ariana Grande - 'Santa Tell Me'

It's been a HUGE year for little Miss Grande; she bagged her first Big Top 40 No.1 with 'Problem', performed at the Victoria Secret Fashion Show and started dating collaborator Big Sean. Surely the cherry on the top of the Christmas pudding would be to grab the most coveted No.1 of the year?

Ben Haenow - 'Something I Need'

It wasn't long ago that Matt Cardle topped the chart with 'When We Collide' however there hasn't been a Christmas No.1 from the show since. However things could be a little different this year as Ben Haenow is in a strong position to challenge for the Big Top 40 No.1.

Nicki Minaj feat. Skylar Grey - 'Bed Of Lies'

Nicki has already broken plenty of records this year with tracks from her upcoming album 'The Pinkprint' drip feeding her adoring fans. This time around the Young Money rapper is releasing her collaboration with Skylar Grey in an attempt to capture her very first Christmas No.1.

Will 'From Eden' follow the chart success of 'Take Me To Church'.
