No surprise as I was a huge Girls Aloud fan, shame 2 of my favourite Saturdays songs (missing you and Notorious) were up against strong Girls aloud songs!

Ok biggest shocker from me when looking at these results.

People actually choosing Girls Aloud's dreadful and I mean dreadful cover of "I Think We're Alone Now" over What About Us.

I just can't get my head around anybody favouring the former over the latter.

It's weird how both groups, released similar kinds of songs at the same stages in their career.

Am I right in thinking that The Saturdays were put together to be the 'replacement' for Girls Aloud when they split, but they just didn't really live up to the expectations?

More or less yeah.

They haven't done that bad though with their singles back catalogue I mean really they made it to a 17th single release despite selling about 600 - 700,000 albums in total over 5 releases.

I listen to the acoustic of Whole Lotta History, I prefer it to the original.

Because 'What About Us' has the embarrassing Jamaican accent attempt?...

That and it also features Sean Paul, who doesn't add much to the song at all. At least GA never had to resort to rent-a-rapper to get a hit.

The Saturdays have had some great songs in their career, Girls Aloud are just flawless though in my opinion.

Luckily I choose to ignore that version exists seeing as there is a divine version without his presence.

The same goes for Higher without Flo Rida.

True they did however resort to releasing not one not two not three not four but FIVE covers to get a hit though.

The Saturdays only had to do that the once.

Whilst I love Girls Aloud, I think they released some dreadful singles and that's why I think The Saturdays won in the end.

Girls Aloud didn't need to release all those covers though, just like The Saturdays didn't need to add rent-a-rappers to their tracks.

Girls Aloud had plenty of amazing and original tracks (e.g. Swinging London Town, Watch Me Go, Graffiti My Soul, Models, Singapore) which they could have released in place of the covers. They should have stopped with the covers after Jump and I'll Stand By You.

And equally The Saturdays would be fine without all the rappers they add to their tracks. It's the management/label who make these decisions and it just so happens that covers were popular in Girls Aloud's time and rent-a-rappers are popular in The Saturday's time.
