With 54.98% of the market reporting, Seether is the top debut at number 3. Unsurprisingly, Adele continues to dominate the chart at number 1. Is there no stopping that woman? Hey, she should duet with Haley. She hasn’t been on Idol yet this year. Anyway. Second for the third week, is Now 38. Jason Aldean’s “My Kind of Party” featuring a duet with Kelly Clarkson is 4th.
Rounding out the top 5 is Michael Grimm, winner of Simon Cowell’s America’s Got Talent. This WGWG beat out little Jackie Evancho who put out a massively popular Christmas EP featuring her singing 4 old Christmas chestnuts. She opened with 239K in sales, but it was a kid with a big voice singing Christmas songs at Christmas time. I can see the appeal. She is set to release another album of songs out of copyright on June 14th. SuBo part II.
Jennifer Lopez hangs in there for 4th, Justin Bieber seems like he is never going to go away and neither are his remixes of “Never Say Never” which are at 7th (isn’t it about time for some new material, Biebs?), Disney’s Lemonade Mouth is 8th and Tinie Tempah debuts at 9th.
Il Volo puts their Idol results show performance slot to good use and squeaks into the top 10. The Band Perry see a bounce in their album perhaps partly from Lauren singing their song (they are also breaking the song on Pop/HAC so that helps too).
Jennifer Hudson is the sole solo Idol at 47th.
This is the daily numbers thread. Holding onto subjects better left to fray.
