Westlife's hectic schedule means their record breaking Number One hit will have bombed out of the Top Ten by the time they get to perform it in front of an audience. But OTR can reveal that their cover of Against All Odds will be well worth waiting for.
The Irish boyband will be joined by Phil Collins - who had a hit with the original - and US superstar Mariah Carey at the MTV Europe Music Awards. The one-off supergroup will share the bill with giants like Robbie Williams and Moby at the premier league music bash on November.
Westlife heart-throb Nicky Byrne, above, is surprised the song is such a big hit despite so little promotional work.
He said: "We haven't been able to perform this song because our schedules have been so busy, just like Mariah's.
"But we are all keen to get together with Phil Collins which would be something special. We just have to make sure we can fit in the time.
"With other singles we have worked really hard to let our fans hear the song but this one had next to no promotion. I wouldn't have been too surprised if it failed to make the Top Ten.
