Talented Crew make history

Justice Crew are now Australian music legends, having equalled the record for the most successful Aussie single in ARIA chart history with their hit Que Sera.

Since debuting at No. 1 the song hasn't dropped for eight weeks and counting, catapulting the 2010 Australia's Got Talent winners into music history.

"It's so crazy, I can't believe it," group member *John Pearce told AAA.

"It's an achievement that we can always remember. It's like a legacy that we're always going to leave behind - we're one of four songs to make eight weeks and be part of Australian history."

Other artists to hold the top position for eight weeks include Gotye's Grammy Award-winning duet with Kimbra, Somebody That I Used to Know, and Austen Tayshus' 1983 hit Australiana.

The group admit that they could never have imagined this much career success.

"We definitely didn't see this coming," Pearce said. "We didn't see making music coming, we didn't even see winning the show (Australia's Got Talent) coming."

Paul Merciadez, known as Paulie, added: "To be honest, we were kind of worried because the song's so different from what we normally release, so we weren't sure how people were going to react to it,"

If the single can hold its position when this week's ARIA singles' chart comes out tomorrow then the group will exclusively hold the title of longest- running Australian single at No. 1, "a dream come true" for the boys.

As they aim to steer their music in a new direction it will be interesting to see if the dance crew can continue to ride their wave of success.

"We're not expecting to get another No. 1 for eight weeks in a row - that would be awesome but we don't get our hopes up like that," Pearce said.

However, the group still believe that Que Sera can continue to do well thanks to the support of their fans.

"Be a part of Australian history. You can say 'I bought that song that helped them get there'," Merciadez said.
