  Popstar girls ahead in Xmas No 1 battle
Updated 16 December 2002, 09.18
Girls Aloud
The two bands created by Popstars the Rivals are finally going head-to-head in the race for Christmas number one.

Both bands' double A-side singles are released on Monday and they'll be spending the week travelling the country trying to gain support.

Girl's are favourites

One True Voice were originally favourites to win the race because they're a boyband.

But now Girls Aloud are ahead - partly because their song, Sound Of The Underground, is more catchy (and we love it!).

And in our CBBC Newsround vote, the girls have got 39% of the vote - well ahead of the guys.

Other songs competing for the top spot include Avril Lavigne's Sk8er Boi, also released on Monday.

Current number one, Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word by Elton John and Blue, is also tipped to sell well this week.

There will be a special programme on Sunday that will show the bands' reaction to the chart outcome.
