Sheffield Wednesday drew 1-1 with Brighton & Hove Albion on Monday, to secure their place in the Championship play-off final.

Sheffield Wednesday's aggregate victory over Brighton & Hove Albion in the Championship play-offs was enough to make the Owls fans dance, then shout, then shake their bodies down to the ground.

Carlos Carvalhal's men survived a first-half onslaught to draw 1-1 at the Amex Stadium on Monday, securing their place at Wembley 3-1 overall.

Afterwards, a number of former Wednesday stars, from Carlton Palmer to Clinton Morrison, tweeted their delight at the Owls' achievement.

And they were joined by a popular music giant, in the shape of Jermaine Jackson.

"Owls always were wiser than seagulls. #swfc", the Jackson 5 singer posted, in reference to the two teams' nicknames.

This isn't the first time Jackson has disclosed his unlikely allegiance on the social media site, having also congratulated the Yorkshire side following their 3-0 win against Arsenal in the Capital One Cup last October.

The fourth Jackson child, who hails from Indiana, USA, first developed an affinity for Wednesday after attending a game against Queens Park Rangers during the 1980s.

The Owls are surprisingly popular within the music industry, with the Arctic Monkeys, Rick Savage (Def Leppard), Jarvis Cocker (Pulp), Richard Hawley, John McClure (Reverend & The Makers) and bizarrely, Rivers Cuomo (Weezer), all avid Wednesdayites.
