Idols on the Billboard 2008 Year End Chart – Complete Chart

I’ve got the complete 2008 year-end Billboard chart for you HERE.   I posted a bunch of charts last week, but overlooked the all-important digital charts:

Hot Digital Songs
8. “No Air” – Jordin Sparks w/Chris Brown
34. “Tattoo” – Jordin Sparks
57. “Crush” – David Archuleta
65. “Time of My Life” – David Cook
71. “One Step at a Time” – Jordin Sparks

Hot Digital Artists
10. Jordin Sparks (3)
28. David Cook (15)
37. Carrie Underwood (6)
45. David Archuleta (5)

There are fewer Idol #1’s this year than last, when Daughtry and Carrie Underwood dominated the 2007 chart.   This year, Daughtry snagged #1 on the Hot Adult Top 40 Artists chart and Carrie Underwood the Top Country Songs Artist.   Carrie landed #2 spots behind the new country princess, Taylor Swift on Top Country Artists, Top Country Artists Female, Top Country Albums, and Top Country Albums – Artists.

Idol winner, Jordin Sparks, is the #2 New Artist (behind her “No Air” partner, Chris Brown) and “No Air” landed the #6 spot on the Hot 100 Songs, #9 on the Hot 100 Artists, and #9 on Hot 100 Artists.   Three of her songs appear on Hot Mainstream Top 40 Songs–“No Air” at #7, “Tattoo” at #22 and “One Step at a Time” at #27.   She’s #4 on the Hot Mainstream Top 40 Artists chart, and #8 on Top Pop Artists, and #6 on Top Pop Artists Female.

The new kids, David Cook and David Archuleta make an appearance.   They’re #8 and #10, respectively, on Top New Pop Artists. And their singles–Cook’s “Time of My Life” and Archuleta’s “Crush”–make a respectable showing on quite a few of the pop charts.   I expect both to make a splash in 2009.

Idols figured on a couple of the year-end tour charts.   Congrats to Carrie Underwood for having the #5 country tour of the year. The American Idols Live tour came in at #24 overall:

Top 5 Tours – Country 2008
5. Carrie Underwood – Gross – 21, 560, 403, Attendance – 488, 346, Capacity – 461, 051

Top Tours – 2008
24. American Idols Live – Gross – 29, 906, 507, Attendance – 493, 296, Capacity – 579, 548

These are just some highlights. Make sure to check out the entire chart.
