  Girls Aloud winning Xmas chart race
Updated 17 December 2002, 17.44
Girls Aloud
The Popstars girls are still on track to get the Christmas chart-topper.

Girls Aloud have sold roughly 30,000 copies of their single - that's 8,000 more than their boy rivals.

So it looks like their tune, Sound of the Underground, will be the Christmas number one.

And you agree! In our CBBC Newsround Online vote, 40 per cent of you reckon the girls can do it.

Top three

But artists from Popstars: The Rivals still look set to fill the top three.

One True Voice
The girls should be number one, and One True Voice are battling it out for the number two spot with the Cheeky Girls (who also auditioned for Popstars).

Even before the groups were formed, the boys were predicted to get the number one spot.

Boys could turn it around

But now the records have been released, the boy's effort, Sacred Trust, hasn't done as well as expected.

However, an HMV chart expert said the boys could still turn it round if sales shifted towards the end of the week.

A spokesman for Virgin Megastores added: "The girls have produced an original record which appeals to both boys and girls alike, and not just teenagers either."
