After the success of the Olympic closing ceremony Emeli is expected to chart highly this weekend.

Rita Ora faces competition from the likes of Emeli Sande and Sam And The Womp on this weekend's Vodafone Big Top 40 chart show.

The 'R.I.P.' singer scored her second solo number one last weekend (12th August) less than 24 hours after the release of her latest single 'Party & BS (How We Do)' and will be looking to make it a second week at number one this Sunday (19th August).

Following the huge success of the London 2012 Olympic Games closing ceremony last week Emeli Sande's piano-led 'Read All About It, Pt. III' has been riding high on the Big Top 40 all week and could challenge Rita for the top spot this weekend.

Ska-pop band Sam And The Womp are set to release their infectious new single 'Bom Bom' on Sunday, which recently joined the Capital FM playlist.

Former number one single 'Heatwave' by Wiley and songs from both Elbow and Kate Bush are also riding high in the charts and could make a big impact on Sunday.

Join Matt Wilkinson on the Vodafone Big Top 40 this Sunday (19th August) from 4pm to find out who scored this weekend's number one single.
