Idol Sales News – Week Ending 01/24/10

Hot Question This Week: Just how many units are there in an Oprah bump?

Idol sales seem to have been pretty steady last week. The one exception was Adam who saw a surge in sales after the double whammy of an Oprah appearance and his WWFM video being released the week prior. Just how big is that surge going to be? No numbers yet, so please post them as you find them! Thanks!

Note: I’m travelling this week in a different time zone, so I won’t have a chance to update this post during the day (MJ might). So, please check the comments for the numbers.
