Simon Cowell is so impressed with Jon and Tracy Morter's successful campaign to get Rage Against The Machine to Christmas number one that he has offered them a job.
The married couple's Facebook campaign spectacularly ended The X Factor's dominance of the Christmas chart yesterday with 'Killing In The Name' shifting 502,000 units compared to McElderry's 450,000.
Speaking to the Daily Mirror, Cowell enthused about the couple saying: 'I'm genuinely impressed by the campaign they have run. It has been a good campaign with no dirty tricks and without funding. They have been passionate and worked hard.”
He continued: “This is their first attempt at putting out a record and they got a Christmas No 1, so they have not done badly at all.
“I wanted them to come and work for us. I was deadly serious but they haven't taken me up on the offer.”
Cowell continued that he has learnt a hard lesson about the Christmas chart race: “I now realise I've taken too much for granted. I have got to hold my hands up. I accept there are people that don't like The X-Factor.”
The Rage Against The Machine campaign has now raised £78,000 for Shelter. You can still make a pledge HERE.
