US Chart Roundup: The Wanted Have A Top 10 Hit

Kelly Clarkson's "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)" rebounds to #1 on the Hot 100 this week, thankfully knocking Katy Perry's Z-grade "Part Of Me" down to #4. Some chyldryn were frenzied last week thinking that this meant the blue-wigged warbler finally landed a sixth chart-topping single off Teenage Dream. Alas, no — Whipped Cream Tits merely saw her first single from Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection chart at the top. At least that's how I'm choosing to see it.

Meanwhile, my jam "Glad You Came" by The Wanted flies up from #23 to #5 following its inclusion on Glee last week. The show's cast version of the song, which, I must say, I was a little disappointed in, debuts at #90.

So how long has it been since a boy band had a Top 10 hit here? I feel like NSYNC's 2002 single "Girlfriend" the last one, no?

Elsewhere, Sia makes her first appearance in the Top 40 via her feature on Flo Rida's "Wild Ones" (#35), Calvin Harris climbs 31 positions to #46 with "Feel So Close," One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful" drops to #50 after debuting at #28 last week and Madonna's "Give Me All Your Luvin'" falls to #58 in its fourth week on the Hot 100.

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)" - Kelly Clarkson *3 weeks*
2. "Set Fire To The Rain" - Adele
3. "We Are Young" - fun. feat. Janelle Monae
4. "Part Of Me" - Katy Perry
5. "Glad you Came" - The Wanted
6. "We Found Love" - Rihanna feat. Calvin Harris
7. "Good Feeling" - Flo Rida
8. "Turn Me On" - David Guetta feat. Nicki Minaj
9. "Young, Wild & Free" - Snoop Dogg & Wiz Khalifa
10. "Starships" - Nicki Minaj

    I'm thinking the Jonas Brothers MIGHT count for a boyband? If so, they had two Top 10s as recently as 2008.

    Hmmm tough call, John! But I think boyband as more manufactured. JoBros were, well, bros. Something about them playing interments also makes them less boybandy to me.

    Yeah, I kind of feel like a traditional boy band is five hotties who can't play an instrument to save their lives.

    ...except for Take That in the '90s, who had Gary Barlow who could play piano.
