Britain’s Got Talent Hollie Steel Guns For X Factor’s John And Edward

pa-7370405HOLLIE Steel. Remember her? The little girl in the ballerina’s tutu who sang like an old woman running her teeth down a blackboard on Britain’s Got Talent? No, not the X Factor.

The other telly show with Simon Cowell sat behind a teachers’ desk. Hollie’s one who, allegedly, ate Susan Boyle’s hamster and was bullied? Hollie’s the one who nearly died?

Well news is that Hollie is aiming to be Top of The Pops this Christmas:

The 10-year-old from Huncoat has an exciting two months ahead of her as she prepares to release a festive single which will go head to head with the winner of the X Factor for the Christmas number one spot.”

If Jedward don’t sing Ebeneezer Good, then Hollie must.

A novelty hit depends on humour, schock factor and awfulness. What about Hollie singing There’s No-One Quite Like Grandma. And then have Grandma come on and weep into her hankie and then pretend to flatline as Hollie replicates the long shrill beep of a hospital heart monitor.

Hollie’s version of ‘Where are you, Christmas?”, a song co-written by Mariah Carey and which featured in the box office hit movie the Grinch, will be available to pre order within weeks and will be released on December 7.

No, Carey did not co-write the song with Hollie Steel.

Where are you Christmas
Why can’t I find you
Why have you gone away

Anyone want to help Hollie out with an answer? Here’s Hollie’s mum:

“It’s a really lovely melt-your heart Christmas song. It is a very exciting time for her and if everyone gets behind her, Lancashire could send her to number one.”

Do it for Lancashire, Hollie! But she faces stiff competition as Jedward do it for Ireland, Alexandra Burke does it London and the Vienna Boys Choir won’t do it all…
