Teen singer debuts at number one

Pixie Lott

Teenager singer Pixie Lott has gone straight to number one in the chart with her debut single, Mama Do.

The 18-year-old knocked the Black Eyed Peas from the top spot, just four years after answering a magazine advert "seeking the next pop diva".

Now Pixie is number one in the singles chart, and has an album ready to be released in September.

Indie rockers Kasabian have taken over the top spot in the album chart with West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum.

It's the third time Kasabian have topped the album charts.


Like many bands they're getting ready for the summer festival season, with a big performance at the Glastonbury Festival planned for the end of June.

Pixie Lott is also singing outdoors, celebrating her number one with an appearance at the Isle of Wight Festival.
