X Factor winner Joe McElderry has revealed that he is still hoping to release a cover of Journey’s ‘Don’t Stop Believin’.

The 18-year-old performed the 1981 classic at the National Television Awards last week, prompting rumours that Simon Cowell had chosen the hit as his next single.

Speaking to the Daily Star, McElderry has now confirmed: “I’d love to release it and it may still happen.”

Though Journey originally prevented the song from being released as McElderry’s debut single, it is thought that they have since relented and agreed to the plans.

However, sources say that Cowell has yet to finalise the idea because he fears the public could become “bored” with ‘Don’t Stop Believin’ following the original track’s chart comeback and the success of the Glee cast’s version. Both are in the UK top ten this week.

Joe took to his blog today to write up a full report of his week so far. In it, he talks performing at the O2 Arena in London, catching up with X Factor people and his BRIT award nomination.

Hi Everybody!

I went to the National Television Awards this week which was fantastic. I had such a good time! Being able to do the red carpet was so surreal and the atmosphere was great. To be able to perform at the O2 and especially opening the show was just crazy and it was the best feeling being up on that stage performing in an arena!…It was good practise for the XF tour next month!

It was also great to catch up with John and Edward and to see their performance which was so entertaining. Also, I managed to catch up with everyone from the X-Factor and I’m so happy that they won the award. To be able to catch up with the judges was brilliant too. I met lots of TV personalities like Joanna Lumley, Amanda Holden, Piers Morgan, Arlene Phillips and of course, Vanilla Ice!! Haha!

Lots of people were asking me last night about being nominated for a Brit Award. Well, I can’t believe it! I was so excited and honoured when I saw my name come up on the nominations when I was watching it on the telly! I can’t believe the other artists who are in the same category as me and its just amazing to now be nominated for a Brit Award is really surreal!

Anyway, I’m in the studio for a bit today and then I head off back home to Newcastle. Cant wait to get started for the X-Factor Tour rehearsals – I can’t wait!

See you all soon,

Joe x
