X Factor Facing Xmas Number 1 Backlash?

Filed under: General

Joe McElderry’s dream of Xmas number one could be in jeopardy thanks to an Internet campaign to stop the X Factor taking the Xmas number one slot for another year.

An Internet campaign is being held to get Rage Against the Machine’s Killing in the Name, with the Facebook group having over 700 000 members.

According to the group’s organisers, they are organising the mass-purchase of the old Rage Against the Machine track as “a protest to the X Factor monotony”.

If you’ve loved watching Joe throughout this series of the X Factor, we urge you to support him by buying the MP3 download or the CD single.


  1. I just want to agree and say that the campaign is unfair towards Joe! He is such an amazing singer and fully deserves his spot at the top of the charts this Christmas! People who are not fans of the X Factor are just jealous of his success. I wish him well and hope people can just get on with their own lives to leave him to do what he can OBVIOUSLY do best! It’s a dig at Simon but what people don’t understand, and what I heard him say in an interview is that Joe McElderry hitting the high at number 1 this Christmas will not change Simon Cowells life whatsoever! He’s already a multi millionaire so it’s only poor Joe who will be feeling the flop! Another point is that if Joe can make it to the top of the charts he really will be fulfilling and achieving something he’d only previously dreamed about, whereas if Race Against The Machine succeed, their only celebrations are going to be that they have beat Simon Cowell! I think those campaigning against Simon should take more interest in their own lives and give the young 18year old a chance at achieving his dream. One last thing, I have just came across this article.. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1236102/Rage-Against-The-Machine-currently-winning-Christmas-number-race–dont-rule-Joe-McElderry-just-yet.html ..So I am happy to see that newspaper reporters are not giving up on Joe either and that it isn’t all bad press he will be seeing! You can do it Joe!!
