Can you imagine American rap star Eminem singing to karaoke classic ‘I’m Gonna Be (500 miles)’ by The Proclaimers? Well, apparently a host of Scottish revellers can, according to a poll conducted by, which saw music fans voting for the song to be covered by Eminem when he headlines T in the Park this weekend.

The Proclaimers’ iconic hit topped the poll, with indie favourites Travis stealing second spot with sing-a-long anthem ‘Why Does it Always Rain On Me’ and Scottish stalwart Rod Stewart only managing third place with his racy hit ‘Do Ya Think I’m Sexy’.

Edward Parkinson, UK Country Director, viagogo said; “Eminem performing at T in the Park is a massive coup for the festival although he has some huge hip hop shoes to follow in, after Jay Z performed the Oasis hit ‘Wonderwall’ at Glastonbury last year.”

“Given T in the Park is the only UK festival Eminem is playing at, his set is sure to be a festival classic and a ticket you wouldn’t want to miss out on”.
