Jonas Brothers' 'Like It's Christmas' Dashes to No. 1 on Adult Contemporary Chart

The song is the first holiday hit to lead the list this season.

Jonas Brothers' "Like It's Christmas" reaches the top of Billboard's Adult Contemporary radio airplay chart (dated Dec. 14), jingling from No. 7 to No. 1.

The original song, newly released this holiday season on Republic Records, is the sibling trio's second AC No. 1, after "Sucker," which ruled for 11 weeks beginning in September. ("Sucker" became the act's first leader on the all-genre, multi-metric Billboard Hot 100 in March.)

"Like It's Christmas" is additionally the 24th holiday No. 1 on the AC chart since 2000, around the time that a majority of stations in the format began playing seasonal songs 24/7 between Thanksgiving and Christmas each year.

Here's an updated recap of all the holiday songs that have hung atop AC's highest bough since 2000:
