X-Factor’s Joe McElderry performed his new single ‘Ambitions’ on Sunday’s X-Factor show, with hopes of finally reaching the number one spot. McElderry’s hopes were dashed, however, when young boy band “The Wanted” pipped him to the post with their new single.
McElderry fans claim Global radio did not play his song nearly enough, but played The Wanted (Global talent represents them) nonstop. Global also own Heart fm, Capital fm, and Galaxy, who also neglected to play Joe’s new song.
Global Radio refused to comment but a source claimed the decision not to play the song had nothing to do with the fact that Global represents The Wanted, but because they simply didn’t like the song.
Still, Radio One have been playing the track and featuring it on their playlists, so let’s hope the next track fares a little better. One things for sure, he remains to be the happiest, most down to earth star the X-Factor has produced yet. Better luck next time Joe!
