Grace Kelly by Mika was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, January 27, 2007 spending 5 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. Mika wrote this song after he felt frustrated with record label executives that wanted him to change his sound to fit the common pop mold. In the song, Mika points out how he can pretend to be anyone he likes to win approval - in this case the glamorous actress Grace Kelly. This was only the second single ever to top the UK chart without selling a physical copy. At the 2007 World Music Awards, Mika won for Best Selling British Artist, Best Selling New Artist, Best Selling Male Entertainer, and World's Best Selling Pop Rock Male Artist. The extracts of Grace Kelly speaking are from her Academy Award-winning performance in the 1954 film The Country Girl.
