Lady GaGa

X Factor winner Alexandra Burke has been booted off the number one spot by American singer Lady GaGa.

The 22-year-old New Yorker hit the top with her first single, Just Dance.

And James Morrison and Nelly Furtado's Broken Strings climbed three places to number two.

Alexandra and her version of Hallelujah is at number three and is the fastest-selling single ever by a female artist.

Lady GaGa, who's tipped to be big in 2009, said: "It's been a long running dream to have a big hit in the UK."

Her album The Fame is released next week.
