There’s just one new album and song to announce. The multi-artist EP, Country for Christmas, debuts at No. 74, while “Pray For You” by Jaron & the Long Road to Love squeezes in at No. 58.

Willie Nelson and Asleep at the Wheels’ Willie & the Wheel re-enters the chart fray at No. 64. And Ron White’s Behavioral Problem resurfaces at No. 55.

X Factor: Cowell slams Stacey as a ‘wedding singer’, while Lloyd boasts I’m Still Standing

With places in the semi-final up for grabs, the five remaining X Factor contestants were determined to make their mark.

And with two songs each – one Elton John, one Take That – they had ample chance to impress the judges.
