Lady GaGa along with new best mate Beyonce made it into the top 20 with 'Telephone' Impressively Bad romance made it back into the 2010 chart at No. 30 selling another 420,200 at the begining of the year.
The X-Factor did get it's christmas No.1 with 2010 winner Matt Cardle - When we collide. and David Guetta managed to sneak in again at position 20 for the 2nd year running.
Eminem & Rihanna took the top spot with a single that didn't even reach a number one chart position.So here they are:-
