On The Pop Charts: Blige On Top Of Foxx
Mary J. Blige gets back to the top of the Billboard charts after Jamie Foxx held the top spot for two weeks. And anyone who tries to pretend "American Idol" doesn't really launch genuine pop stars, think again. Last year's winner Carrie Underwood is at Number Three with her debut and the album charts are filled with other contestants, including Kelly Clarkson of course. The same is true in the UK, where the equivalent first season winner of "Pop Idol" -- Will Young" is in the Top Ten with his third album and the top of the singles chart is held by Shayne Ward, the winner of Simon Cowell's "The X Factor."
