Monday Morning Mediabase Update: Apr 30-May 6

No milestones this week from Idols, but the X-Factor contestants have it going on (or as the Dawg would say, “They are in it to win it!” When I start quoting the Dawg, I know I need more sleep). Not content with having a top 10 hit on Pop, One Direction from UK XF added “One Thing” to the top 50 chart. Meanwhile, their debut single, “What Makes you Beautiful”, went top 15 on HAC. Representing the US franchise of the show, Marcus Canty’s debut single “Won’t Make a Fool Out of You” went top 40 on Urban. The third and fourth place finisher of that show already have top 40 hits…when will we get music from those who came in first and second?

In other news, this week is a big week for adds with no fewer than 5 songs from singing competitions being promoted to radio. Cheryl Lloyd from UK X-Factor, Marcus Canty from US X-Factor and 3 of the original reciepe top 4 who were finally acknowledged by The Voice this week (Javier, Vicci and Beverley) have songs going for adds on various formats. Adam Lambert’s debut single,”Better Than I know Myself”, from his second album fell off our charts this week as his second single continues to gain spins.
