The Voice UK winner Stevie McCrorie looks set to score this week’s Official Singles Chart Number 1 with his debut single Lost Stars.
If it sales momentum continues, the track will be the highest charting single from a The Voice winner in history, overtaking series two victor Andrea Begley’s recording of Evanescence’s My Immortal, which reached Number 30 back 2013.
Lost Stars - whose proceeds go towards the BBC’s Performing Arts Fund - currently leads its nearest competitor, Nick Jonas’ Jealous (2), by nearly 4,000 combined chart sales.
The success of McCrorie’s release has also boosted the original version of the song - recorded by Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine for 2014 romantic comedy Begin Again - into the Top 100, landing at Number 64 today.
Elsewhere, current chart-topper Jess Glynne’s Hold My Hand slides two places to Number 3 midweek, followed by James Bay’s Hold Back The River (4) and Years & Years’ King (5).
Dutch dance duo Pep & Rash are set to make their chart debut on Sunday with Rumors (11), as Meghan Trainor’s new single Dear Future Husband is on track to score her a third Top 40, up ten places midweek to Number 38.
Finally, 2014 Britain’s Got Talent finalists Bars & Melody are set to score a second UK Top 40 with new track Stay Strong (40).
