UK Singles Chart, October 2, 2010


1. Just the Way You Are - Bruno Mars

Within days of hitting #1 in the US, Bruno Mars does the same in the UK, making "Just the Way You Are" the fifth UK #1 hit this year that was also a #1 hit in the US (following "Fireflies," "OMG," "Nothin' on You," and "California Gurls"). He's also the fifth artist to score a #1 hit this year, after Dizzee Rascal, B.o.B., David Guetta, and Roll Deep, and the 26th #1 hit this year.

7. Focus - Emma's Imagination

Another one from that reality show. Should I be caring about this? I really don't, although I will be interested in who wins The X Factor.

10. I'm in Love (I Wanna Do It) - Alex Gaudino

Italian DJ Alex Gaudino scores his third top 40 and second top 10 after "Destination Calabria" with Crystal Waters, which hit #4 in 2007.

13. Heartbeat - Enrique Iglesias feat. Nicole Scherzinger

Enrique and Nicole (can we call them "Ricky and Nikki?") jump 37 spots to #13 with "Heartbeat." It's due for a physical release next week, so I'm hoping we'll see this in the top 10, as it's a great single. This is Iglesias's 14th top 40 hit and the third for Scherzinger apart from her Pussycat Dolls hits.

17. Pyramid - Charice feat. Iyaz

Season 2 of Glee may not be airing in Britain, but that doesn't stop one of the new faces from this season from scoring a top 20 hit this week. Filipina singer Charice Pempengco, who just goes by "Charice," joined the Glee cast this year as Sunshine Corazon, a new rival for Rachel. "Pyramid" has already been a hit in Asia and a #1 on the US dance chart (although it only hit #56 on the Hot 100).
