Adele bested the other singles for six weeks but this week, a Christmas Carol curiously shot to the #1 spot, as Seal's "This Christmas" tops the list. 
"Hello" by Adele was the #2 song and in the #3 spot was R.City feat Adam Levine with "Locked Away."
Seal tops the charts for the first time in 20 years, when "Kiss From A Rose" began a 12-week tour of duty atop the AC charts.

The X Ambassadors hung onto their Top 5 status with "Renegades" staying in the 4 spot, while Taylor Swift may have had her dreams of #1 dashed. Swift falls to #5 this week with "Wildest Dreams."

The list still has a few Christmas decorations to put away, as five Carols are still charting in the Top 20. Train, Jann Arden, The Tenors and Michael Buble all have their carols still charting.
