Leona Lewis Uses Her Power Of Mediocrity To Block Take That From A U.K. #1

Well, it would have been a beautiful world for Take That to rule if Z-grade reality show warbler Leona Lewis hadn't mucked it all up. This week Lewis' "Bleeding Love" trumps the That's top notch Stardust-soundtrack ballad, "Rule The World," at capping the official U.K. chart. This marks the second time Simon Cowell's latest finger puppet has kicked the guys to the side -- at Christmas time last year, her debut single knocked "Patience" from #1. I'm officially ripping that hooker's wig off if I ever see her.

And so this means Leona and Take That also keep McFly from landing their eighth U.K. #1, as "The Heart Never Lies" has to settle for the second runner-up spot. If we're to go by the usual trend with these half-baked twits, they'll drop out of sight come next week.

Oasis round out the Top 10, while quite a bit lower, at #24, Backstreet Boys are finding that "Inconsolable" might just be an aptly-named theme for their latest stab at hangin' around, post departed member Kevin Richardson. The single peaked at #86 here in the Sates. The Boys' album Unbreakable is out this week.

On the album chart, all the media hype eases the fall of Róisín Murphy's Overpowered to #31, after a so-so debut last week at #20.
