With only 31.77% of the market reporting, SuBo looks to be cruising to another victory this week. Nipping distantly at her heels is AI dueter and tour-mate (and representing Country this week), Keith Urban. Rihanna, who appeared on Idol this spring, is coming in third and doing about how she typically does with her debut week. iTunes-hater and Idol-judge dissing Kid Rock debuts in fourth while frequent AI performer Rascal Flatts rounds out the top 5. AGT runner-up is in 6th, Glee’s Christmas is in 7th, Josh Groban (Glee’s first big guest star) is 8th, and Taylor Swift (whose manager dissed AI for producing people who can sing) gets pushed all the way down to 9th. Lady Antebellum who has appeared on Idol and had concerts with various Idols, comes in 10th (see, everybody has a MJ blog connection!)

The only solo Idols to appear on the chart are our newly minted AI winner Lee whose debut disk is currently at 24th and chart stalwart Carrie whose third CD is sitting at 45th despite having been out for over a year. Carrie also appears on Now Christmas V4 (28th) while Now 36 (featuring Adam and Daughtry) is at 19. Original recipe Idol winner Kelly appears on Jason Aldean’s album which is currently at 21. Finally, some people just can’t get enough of SuBo, so her original CD has popped back up on the charts like an Inferius guarding a piece of one’s soul in a super-secret cave.

This is the daily’s number thread. Live it up.
