There's a chance it could be an awkward Christmas in the Cowell household this year after the odds on AC/DC's 'Highway To Hell' being this year's Christmas number one have been slashed to 3/1 as the result of a Facebook campaign which has garnered over 100,000 'Likes' in just four days.
You may recall that back in 2009 a similar campaign resulted in Rage Against The Machine's 'Killing In The Name' winning the race to the coveted (by some, anyway) Christmas number one slot - which has been the almost exclusively reserved for the winner of Simon Cowell's X-Factor series - five of the last eight Christmas Number One singles have come straight from X-Factor to the top of the charts.
AC/DC were likely picked because the legendary Australian rockers formed 40 years ago this month.
The eventual X-Factor winner is still the bookies favourite for the top spot at odds of 11/8. Others who are aiming for the Number One slot this Christmas include Lily Allen's cover of Keane 'Somewhere Only We Know', 11-year-old choirboy Jack Topping's 'Tomorrow' from the musical Annie and Susan Boyle's duet with Elvis (yep, seriously) 'O Come, All Ye Faithful'.
We're firmly a member of Team AC/DC in this matter and we urge you to do the same!
