I would only be too happy to be pleased wrong but look at Nicole Scherzinger last week. Two days at #1 on I-Tunes and she has ended up at #6
yeah but she didnt have the radio support and tv support the Sats had

Plus she didn;t have a succesfull EP either

Nicole was never #1 on iTunes. She was #2 combined with multiple versions.

I honestly think they will debut at #2 behind Justin Timberlake. Yes he is #3 on iTunes but the new album is released tomorrow and different versions of the song are expected to climb are iTunes and One Direction are likely to drop.

Plus i find it hilarious how much they ask, beg and plead for a #1 and it clearly isn't doing anything for them.

Yeah but they never spent this long at #1 (I think) + their EP is still at #1 and one remix is also charting around 150


I'm not saying it certainly is but it looks like they're heading for #1
There's a fairly good chance of them getting that elusive No 1. It's about time they got one. I'd rather The Saturdays had a No 1 than One Direction, who could probably release a single of themselves farting into the microphones and still get No 1

It would certainly be a breath of fresh air if the Saturdays get to no 1 instead!

I'm not really into buying singles but I always buy albums of artists I like - but I made an exception and purchased What About Us. I love the girls and really would love to see them get that perfect number 1 they've always wanted.

What's ironic is that this song is easily their worst single, and yet so far looks to gain more success than a lot of their past releases!

I've just realised that the Timberlake album is out this week, which means they probably won't keep that number 1 spot on the album charts for much longer tbh.

What do you think is their worst? Not saying this song is bad, it's been my jam for a few weeks now, but in relation to their other songs I can't think of any song that is worse than this, maybe Forever is Over? But that song wasn't bad, it just didn't really suit them is all.

I didn't like 30 Days.

I think their cover of Just Can't Get Enough was probably the worst.

Completely agree. I've loved every single they've released before but just can't get into this one.

With a name like yours garyessex i cant take what you say serious.

They deserve a number one they do work there butts off

and there fans dont need to shut up. you need too
Wow, exactly the level of intelligence i expect, can't take a criticism so make personal remarks.

How exactly do they work their butts off? Most of their tracks are just standard dance tracks written by some nameless face their only contribution is singing. Their first couple of albums were quite good but it just seems now they're pandering to what they think is good rather than the music they actually enjoy making

What an awful performance on Daybreak. Rochelle looked awkward trying to dance and the lip synching.

She's 7 months pregnant giver her break! At least she's doing it and the performance was good.

They didn't lip sing, and im completely confused.

So the verses (apart from Mollie and Frankie) were live, and the chorus had a very very loud backing.

It was mixed awfully, you could tell by Vanessa and Una doing the oooooooo's at the end.

Confused.
Wish they'd just do it acoustic like on the Jeff Probst show, that was amazing.

It isn't so much pleading, they've gone through that stage with the whole 'Missing You' era and learnt from it.

They're just really keen! Can you blame them!? 11 Top 10 singles, and no no.1? I know it doesn't count for much these days, but they've had just about every other number, and it's just the final cherry on top I suppose.

It's one of those things which they can tell the kids about etcetc. Plus it may also mean they get a Brit nomination? Doubt it, but most no.1's do

I do love the girls but their Daybreak perfomance was pretty bad and the miming in parts was very noticable, Shame really as they could have done so much better.

I enjoyed the Daybreak performance, Frankie and Mollie mimed very well, if it wasn't for me knowing what their real live voices sound like then I wouldn't have known, I'm betting they fooled a lot of the general public.

Having just heard this song, I really hope it doesn't get to No.1. It's absolute dreck - generic, paint-by-numbers rubbish. Plus, Sean Paul is in it, making it at least 50% worse than it already would have been. Hopefully JT's album can give Mirror a boost or something.

Their worst single was easily the terrible "Heart Takes Over"
