This week was a good sales week for three separate American Idol winners, all who saw good sales increases, each remaining again in the BillBoard 200 and all breaking through a 100K barrier on their total sales. Again I will start off with Scotty McCreery's "Clear As Day" whose line color I have now changed to green since he keeps on earning more money for his label! His sales increased by 42% to sell 3,000 units for the week and take him to 1,103,000 in total sales. He made me increase the maximum on my total sales graph to 1.2M and also kept himself in the BillBoard 200, improving this week to #141. Not to be outdone was the original Idol winner, Kelly Clarkson, who saw her sales increase a whopping 81% to sell 10K this week and reach the 900K threshold in total sales. Her Billboard rank also improved, putting her at #35, a position she has not held for over a couple months. But the top selling Idol for the week is again Carrie Underwood's "Blown Away" with a 15% increase of 17K in sales, letting her pass the 700K threshold to land at 707K total sales and a #17 chart position after 16 weeks.
