Not a bad start for an act that was eliminated so early in the competition. I really want them to do better

That's really good for them consedring they are not signed as well I think if they got singed they would
potentially do really well.

I want them to do better, but it`s pretty good seeing as they haven`t been signed!!

Well hopefully this will built momentum for The Risk.

It's not uncommon for singles to rapidly climb the charts despite starting at a lower position

Get the word out, The Risk have a new song out - "Missiles".

tbh it is probably going to drop down a few places now. I don't think they're going to do that well though as they really haven't had much ,marketing and the song isn't the best

Well so far there's has been very little promotion, they aren't signed.

But that could change...

It's already down to number 94 on iTunes, so it's doubtful it will be in the top 40 come Sunday.

I liked The Risk, especially Charlie's voice, but the song is a generic hybrid of virtually every other pop song from the last few years. They need better material and a label behind them unfortunately.

Terrible song, in my opinion. Good on them for getting a single out, I don't begrudge them that at all, but the song is really poor.

It's dropping on the iTunes chart like a stone, I'm pretty sure it won't be in the official top 40 come Sunday, which is a shame as The Risk are actually really good but the song is dire.

Horrible horrible puns ^

The Risk weren't that great. However, due to the fact that Andy and Charlie are in the group I want them to do amazingly well.

They aren't signed.. they have done nothing to promote the single, the song isn't that good either to be honest.. I wish they'd get better chart success, but I don't see it happening in reality. If Tulisa really ever cared about her acts, why doesn't she promote them on her facebook/Twitter like Danni and Kelly do?

I just thought I'd give The Risk a mention.

It is X Factor related news afterall

I just bought my copy on Itunes

The popularity bar is still full so it's doing well.

It's a catchy song but their next song will have to be better.

I think The Risk deserve their break.

It's dropped down to something like 112 on the iTunes charts and to 63 on Amazon now.

It will definitely have dropped out of the top 40 by now and I can't see anything surging them back up the charts. They're set to perform and be interviewed on Loose Women tomorrow but even that would seem too little, too late to me.

The song is OK, but they have good voices, so I don't understand why the chorus and the harmonies don't sound much better.

I remember during X factor, before one of the guy from the risk chose to leave and was replaced, they had amazing harmonies and I thought they were going to go really far. It was just working so well despite the fact that one of them didn't really want to be there. After the change, everything crumbled down. I thought it was because they had a lot to deal with, but maybe their voices just don't work as perfectly well together... Because individually, they seem to all have good voices.

They're down to #114 on Itunes, will probably end around #70/80

To be fair they probably don't have the promo opportunities to begin with. Not many people are going to book an appearance by a boyband who came 8th on the X-Factor and don't even have a record deal.

The question is whether they can hang onto the top 75 come Sunday.

Kelly Rowland has tweeted numerous time when Misha's Home Run & Do you think of me and Amelia's You bring me Joy

@kellyrowland
"I'm so proud of my @AmeliaLilyOffic. UK, you gotta grab my girls new single 'You Bring me Joy' out this Friday"

Danni posted Matts recent albumc's link on her tumblr page (The Fire).

These two live half a world away from their former acts but they still promote them by all means but Tulisa who lives next door to her acts seen to forget them after the show (except Little Mix).. she only did the show for herself

Didn't Little Mix fail to thank Tulisa in their album credits? I thought that was very telling
