Monday Morning Mediabase Update: Mar 26-Apr 1

This appears to be the week the third place finishers roared.

Casey James who finished third on the beleaguered 9th season of Idol has achieved his first top 20 on Country. “Let’s Don’t Call it a Night” has had a long crawl to this position, but it has become the most successful radio hit from that season. It’s the debut single off of his debut album.

Also hitting top 20 this week for the first time on US radio, is Canadian Idol 3rd place finisher Carly Rae Jepsen. “Call Me Maybe” has been a hit in her home country for a while, but this is her first foray into the American market. The song achieved top 20 on Pop and top 40 on HAC this week.

Another top 40 on HAC was achieved by Carrie Underwood. Her debut single from her fourth album appears to be crossing over because it’s getting an add date for that format. The song also went top 50 on AC.

Haley Reinhart who finished third from Season 10 also made in-roads on HAC. Her debut single, “Free”, from her debut album achieved top 50 in that format. She had previously charted on AC for a Christmas duet with Casey A, but this is her first solo charting song. This means that the entire top 4 from Season 10 has now charted as solo artists.

Mandisa returns to the top 40 on CAC and Lauren to the top 30 on country.
