We managed to get precise Soundscan numbers for Adam and Carrie. For more sales numbers goodness, make sure to check out Kirsten’s Sales post HERE. She’s gathering the week’s Idol airplay and download numbers, so make sure to check in throughout the day.

I said this yesterday in the Hits thread, but it I’ll say it again–despite not selling over the predicted 200K, Adam’s debut numbers are still excellent. Coming in at #3 on the BB200 competing with a host of heavy hitters is impressive.

And Carrie? Play On is doing quite nicely. Congrats to her.   Susan Boyle’s monster numbers are incomprehensible.
