The top 3 on the Hot 100 last week still remain at their positions from last week, and it seems Jay-Z and Alicia Keys are still stopping Lady Gaga or Ke$ha from taking top spot. Kelly Clarkson climbs again with Already Gone steeping up one spot up from last week standing at #14 this week. German trio Cascada climbs and peaks with Evacuate The Dancefloor at #25 this week. After Kris Allen's Live Like We're Dying fell to #47 last week, it has bounced back up to #44 this week. Daughtry debuts on the Hot 100 with their second single Life After You at #66. Nick Jonas' solo venture has debuted on the Hot 100 with Who I Am debuting at #73.
Susan Boyle secures a second week at #1 with I Dreamed A Dream topping the Billboard 200 albums chart, with Andrea Bocelli's My Christmas trailing closely behind. Carrie Underwood's third studio album has climbed up the charts to #6 this week, up 3 spots from last week. American Idol alums David Archuleta's Christmas From The Heart and Allison Iraheta's Just Like You are placed at #34 and #35 respectively, with Allison's debut posting a disappointing 30, 000 + copies sold in its first week, with the first single Friday I'll Be Over U not doing very well. Leona Lewis' Echo falls even further down, standing at #75 this week. Mariah Carey's Christmas album Merry Christmas re-enters the charts again standing at #133 this week. Carrie Underwood's sophomore album Carnival Ride re-enters the charts at #196.
