Songs which are featured on ITV's music talent show 'The X Factor' will not be chart eligible this year, unlike the countless years which precede it. A spokesperson has said that this is to protect chart integrity.
This may have do something to do with the mega fight for Christmas #1 last year between X Factor winner Joe McElderry and Rage Against The Machine, which was organised via facebook.
The X Factor - created by Simon Cowell will showcase in the USA in 2011.
