Kylie announced that the song would serve as the second single during The X Factor Australia on 16 November. She also confirmed that she would perform the track, alongside Dannii, on the season 7 grand final on 24 November. In a statement, Kylie said: "I'll be bringing a little Christmas cheer to The X Factor stage, I can't wait to come home and perform on the show with Dannii". The performance was their first performance together since their live performance of "Kids" on her Showgirl: The Homecoming Tour in 2006, and the first televised performance together since they performed "Sisters Are Doin' It for Themselves" on Young Talent Time in 1986.

Kylie wrote "100 Degrees" about adapting to a winter Christmas in the UK after being raised in Australia and was inspired by Donna Summer's vintage disco classics. Dannii said; "There's not enough party Christmas songs, everyone has Christmas parties, but what music do you put on? This song is perfect for dancing to. And our X Factor performance is going to be all guns blazing. And by guns, I mean glitter guns. It's going to be a very sparkly, very Minogue Christmas."

The song was used by Target Australia for their Christmas commercials. The adverts starred Dannii Minogue, who has a fashion line with Target Australia.

Music video

The music video sees the pair recording the song and having fun in the studio, surrounded by tinsel, with Dannii donning 'Disco Christmas' T-shirt & Kylie donning a 'Kylie Kissmass' T-shirt.

Reception

Mike Wass from Idolator said that "100 Degrees" was the album's highlight. Wass said "The siblings inject a whole lot of fabulous into the festive season with disco-tinged anthem" adding, "the duet is every bit as camp as you would expect."
