It's been quite a week for Lady GaGa. After meeting the Queen (dressed in a red PVC Elizabeth I inspired gown at The Royal Variety Performance), her single, Bad Romance, has topped the charts. She beat off stiff pre-Christmas competition from Rihanna and Peter Kay's Animated All Star Band with The Official BBC Children In Need Medley.
It's something of a double win for the kooky popster as the single previously went to number one back in November.
And La GaGa's not doing badly in album sales either; she's swiftly ascended the album chart playing second only to Britain's Got Talent runner up, Susan Boyle.
Christmas is always an exciting time of year in the music charts… And with X Factor winner Joe McElderry's debut single The Climb thrown into the mix, next week's race for Christmas number one is set to be as exciting as ever... Watch this space!
