Kaisers And Coldplay Set For Chrimbo TOTP

Post by Baz on Fri Dec 19, 2008 4:23 am

Kaiser Chiefs and Coldplay will bolster a pop-heavy Christmas Top Of The Pops, to be broadcast on Christmas Day. Other artists featured include Duffy, Girls Aloud and Dizzee Rascal.

It’s the first time Top Of the Pops will hit British screens since being cancelled in July this year. The BBC’s flagship pop show had been running for forty two years and was shelved because of dwindling audience figures. In its 1970’s heyday, the show pulled in 15 million viewers, but had dropped to 3 million by 2002 before being moved to BBC 2.

The Christmas Top Of The Pops will feature this year’s festive number one which looks set to be X Factor winner Alexandra Burke. Her cover of Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’ is clearly ahead of Leona Lewis’s cover of Snow Patrol’s ‘Run’. Jeff Buckley, who famously covered the Cohen song, also looks set to debut in the top ten with his version.
