Why The Hell Can't Ke$ha Use Her Powers Of Slut To Knock Jay-Z Off The Top Of The Chart?

First of all, wouldn't it be nice if Ke$ha or Lady Gaga or some other gyrating four-on-the-floor ho bumped Jay-Z and Alicia Keys off the top of the chart already? "Empire State Of Mind" seems to have hopped onto the crest of the Christmastime nostalgia/ home-is-where-the-heart-is/I New York wave, or whatever you wanna call it. But after five weeks, someone needs to dump a snow shovel full of slush over that damn song already.

As the Top 10 of Billboard's Hot 100 doesn't have any new entries, let's instead flip on the weekly Cascada Watch. Oh, look—after 18 weeks, "Evacuate The Dancefloor" climbs up one more position, to #25. At this rate, Natalie Horler and Co. should be just below Jay-Z by May.

Astoundingly, with all the press Adam Lambert's gotten in the recent weeks, it's actually Kris Allen who is the first of the two American Idol finalists to land a Top 40 hit off their debut album. "Live Like We're Dying" jumps from #44 to #36, while Lambert no longer has a single on the Hot 100. It's always the quiet (and boffable) ones!

Kris' full LP, however, falls to #61 in its fourth week on the Top 200 Albums chart, while Adam's For Your Entertainment is at #30 in its third week.

Other than that, there are about 67 Glee tunes that have popped up in the Hot 100—including the cast recording of Kelly Clarkson's "My Life Would Suck Without You" at #51. Personally, I thought that one could have been done better than the straight-forward rendition that was presented on the show.

Back on the album chart, Susan Boyle remains at #1 for a third week, now having sold 1.8 million copies of I Dreamed A Dream in the States. Get that ca$h, you Scottish wildcat.

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Empire State Of Mind" - Jay-Z feat. Alica Keys *5 weeks*
2. "TiK ToK" - Kesha
3. "Bad Romance" - Lady Gaga
4. "Replay" - Iyaz
5. "Fireflies" - Owl City
6. "Sexy Chick" - David Guetta feat. Akon
7. "Whatcha Say" - Jason DeRulo
8. "Meet Me Halfway" - The Black Eyed Peas
9. "3" - Britney Spears
10. "Down" - Jay Sean feat. Lil Wayne

    GLEE love!
    They are some pretty great tunes from the show, at least they made it more interesting than the original one. :)

    I'm so proud of Kris! I think Adam's album is alright, but with all of this overhype, I'm kinda happy it backfired.
