Idols Update - Correct Info For Jordin/Black & More

Here's a list of the current standings & sales of memorable American Idol contestants CD's that dropped not-too-long ago. This is an UP-TO-DATE list of sales. The post a few posts down with Jordin & Blake's sales is out-dated and quite inaccurate. The list is in order of sales on the most recent SoundScan reports. Idols that are currently not charting follow.



When we last left Carrie's Carnival Ride, it was No. 9 on the Billboard album chart, having sold 138,000. The next week (Dec. 17-23, prime holiday shopping), it jumped to 7 with 216,000 sold. This past week, incorporating the record industry's traditional post-Christmas crash, it fell to 11 with 72,000, a somewhat-larger-than-usual 67% (compared to most of the albums in the top 20). Total is now 1.69 million.

Daughtry had been 28, moved to 21 before Christmas with an 80% increase to 107,000, and then fell back down to 28 this week, dropping 59% to 44,000. Total is now 3.62 million.

Jordin had fallen 26-28 but jumped to 89,000 sales, a 44% boost. Now she's at 40, having sold 36,000, a 59% drop. Total is 407,000, which means gold is at least in sight.

Carrie's Some Hearts climbed 59-55 just before Christmas, selling 47,000 (up 50%), then fell to 65, selling 23,000 (down 51%). Total is 6.19 million.

Blake was one of the few albums the week before Christmas to suffer a sales decline (albeit a minor one, 4.5%), to 55,000, which dropped him 32-44 on the chart. Now he's down to No. 76, selling 20,000, a 64% drop. Total stands at 231,000.

Kellie Pickler had leaped from 200 to 169, selling in the mid-13,000s, a 69% jump. Now, however, she's off the chart again, selling 6,000. Her total is 698,000, meaning she should pass Taylor Hicks' sales next week.

Making a surprise return to the chart this week is Elliott's Sounds of the Season, which must have snagged a lot of last-minute pre-Christmas buyers. It sold about 11,000 (up from 8,800) to return at No. 123, bringing its total to 56,000.

Off-chart Idols (except Kellie, obviously) and year-end tidbits follow.

I'll cram two weeks' worth of sales info into a quick, efficient format:

Kelly, Breakaway: 6,000 this week (14,000 last week; 5.93 million total)

Kelly, My December: 5,000 (11,000; 737,000 total)

Elliott: 5,000 (11,000; 482,000 total)

Clay (Christmas album): 3,000 (8,000; 1.4 million total)

Clay (Thousand): 400 (800; 522,000 total)

Clay (All Is Well EP): 200 (400; 52,000 total)

Bucky: 2,500 (7,000; 316,000 total)

Bo: 1,500 (4,000; 36,000 total)

Fantasia: 1,300 (2,000; 501,000 total -- a milestone passed there)

Mandisa: 1,300 (3,000; 66,500 total)

Mandisa (Xmas): 200 (500; 2,800 total)

Katharine: 800 (1,200; 365,000 total)

Taylor: 400 (700; 699,000 total)

Constantine: 300 (500; 23,000 total)

Ruben: 100 (200; 236,000 total)

Paris: 100 (100; 20,000 total)

Kimberley (Based): 100 (200; 17,000 total)

Kimberley (Xmas): 100 (200; 2,200 total)

Before I get to the year-end standings, Stormiya had a request in about album sales totals for certain more obscure Idols, so here goes.

Jim Verraros, Rollercoaster: 4,000 (rounded, of course)

Ayla Brown, Forward: 3,000

Jon Paul Lewis, Stories From Hollywood: 1,000

Nikki McKibbin, Unleashed: not found in SoundScan system

Lisa Leuschner, Reality: Found in SoundScan system but sales are what the company refers to as "negligible," which means not yet in three figures.

Year-End Results (SoundScan )

No. 5 for the year: Daughtry, 2.50 million (for calendar year 2007)

12. Carrie (Carnival), 1.69 million

17. Carrie (Hearts), 1.54 million

59. Kelly (December), 737,000

99. Elliott, 482,000

119. Jordin, 407,000

140. Katharine, 365,000

152. Kellie, 346,000

178. Bucky, 316,000

193. Kelly (Breakaway), 290,000

Ten out of 200 -- very impressive. Year-end download stats will be noted in the next post, up tomorrow morning
