According to the latest Official Charts Company sales data, The Voice looks set to dominate this week’s Official Singles Chart with 14 of the tracks performed on this weekend’s shows on course to re-enter the Top 200.
Four out of five tracks performed by Sir Tom Jones, Will.I.Am and Danny O’Donoghue’s teams have made an appearance in this morning’s Official Charts sales flash, while only two tracks performed by Jessie J’s team – Rihanna’s We Found Love (performed by Jessica Hammond and Vince Kidd) and Beyonce’s Irreplaceable (performed by Indie and Pixie and Becky Hill) – have made it into the Top 200.
Out of all the teams, Danny O’Donoghue's is in the lead with all four of his tracks in the Top 75 – James Morrison’s Broken Strings, Madcon’s Beggin’, U2’s With Or Without You and Stereophonics’ former Number 1 hit, Dakota. Sir Tom Jones is in second place with three tracks in the Top 75 - Kings Of Leon’s Use Somebody, Alicia Keys' No One and Lady Gaga’s Edge Of Glory - while Will.I.Am and Jessie J both have one track each in the Top 75 (Alanis Morissette’s Ironic and Rihanna’s We Found Love, respectively).
Out of the judges themselves, Jessie J leads the charge with four of her own tracks in the Top 200 (Domino, Who You Are, Price Tag and Laserlight). Danny O’Donoghue’s band The Script have three tracks in the Top 200 (The Man Who Can’t Be Moved, Breakeven and For The First Time), while Will.I.Am’s Black Eyed Peas have two (I Gotta Feeling and Where Is The Love).
