No possibly about it this will go right to number 1 on itunes and be streamed alot with all those artists involved.

I'm pleasantly surprised to see Geri among them aswell.

Agree with all of this.

It raises her profile further, will probably be a huge hit, and it's for charity - ticks all the right boxes (without wanting this to sound too cynical in what is a truly, truly dreadful event!).

I love this! She's starting really well, if this becomes a hit it will be a perfect oportunity to release her album and be successful.

It is great she will be on it but I don't think it will be a huge hit. Streaming dominates and although I'm sure it will do really well on itunes the last couple of years have shown people don't actually actively listen to these novelty or charity singles and thus get low streams. It is more about the sentiment of buying it for a good cause than actually listening to it.

So is it right that Rita Ora has 5 number 1s? And she's on this so if it goes to number 1 her and Geri would technically be classed as having another number 1 but Rita would still be ahead of Geri?

Oh. On wiki it says she had 4 and part of band aid like Melanie C so 5 as well. So she'd go to 6 and Geri would tie with Cheryl with 5 if this went to number 1

And I can't hear which one Geri's voice.. confused. The singer in this project just sing one line, then turn over to other singer but I can't hear Geri's voice. Maybe I missed it

I think she's just apart of the backing chorus but I could be wrong. I read a list of who sings what on twitter and Simon said 50 artists contributed to the song but in fact only about 15 actually sing lead.

Wow that's quite a list! Geri will no doubt be part of the chorus, they couldn't possibly give a line to everyone who took part.

When I heard it would be Bridge Over Troubled Water I was a bit :shrug: - it's been covered so many times; but listening to it I actually found it very moving. I'm not a massive Simon Cowell fan but fair play to him for pulling it all together in a few days.

Good for Geri to be involved, but the song is beyond weak and the rappers totally kill it.

If by any chance this went to #1, Geri would tie (again) with Melanie C as the two British females with the most #1s in total (solo and group), with 12 each.

When you're weary (Robbie Williams)Feeling small (James Blunt)
When tears are in (Rita Ora) Your eyes, (Craig David) , I'll dry them all (Dan Bastille)
I'm on your side (Liam Payne), when times get rough (Emely Sande)
And friends just can't be found (Kelly Jones)
Like a bridge over troubled water (Paloma Faith)
I will lay me down (Louis Tomlinson)
Like a bridge over troubled water (Labrinth)
I will lay me down (Jorja Smith)

When you're down and out (Leona Lewis)
When you're on the street (Jessie J)
When evening falls so hard (James Arthur)
I will comfort you (Roger Daltrey)
I'll take your part (Ella Eyre)
When darkness comes (Anne Marie & Ella Henderson)
And pain is all around (Louisa Johnson)

Like a bridge over troubled water (All, but lead voice Robbie Williams)
I will lay me down (James Arthur)
Like a bridge over troubled water (All)
I will lay me down (Rita Ora)

How dare they not give her a solo? Lol that's a shame but there are so many people on it I knew she would never get a solo in a line-up like that, just nice to be involved
