Simon Cowell earns £250,000 per day in Hallelujah battle

While there has been lots written this week about which version of Leonard Cohen's classic song Hallelujah is the best, the original, X Factor winner Alexandra Burke's or Jeff Buckley's version, the real winner is Simon Cowell.

It turns out that the man behind American Idol owns the rights to all three versions and is earning up to £250,000 per day thanks to the different campaigns to get the song to the top spot for Christmas.

While fans of Cohen and Buckley may think that they are getting one over on Cowell & Co. they are actually going a long way to help him buy a Caribbean island. Nice work sticking it to the man fellas.
