With week-over-week sales falling a mere 14 percent, Adam Lambert easily eclipses the million mark for Whataya Want From Me downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan. And, with more than 86,000 downloads, it’s still the week’s best-selling Idol track.

Carrie Underwood also had a good week, her downloads boosted by appearances on the Academy of Country Music Awards and Idol Gives Back. Temporary Home, Cowboy Casanova, Before He Cheats, All-American Girl, Undo It and Jesus, Take the Wheel all saw double-digit percentage increases, and the studio version of Change, her Idol Gives Back song — rocketed a jaw-dropping 2,001 percent.

Adam Lambert, Whataya Want From Me (86,000, -14 percent, 1.051 million)
Kris Allen, Live Like We’re Dying (27,000, -27 percent, 1.35 million)
Carrie Underwood, Temporary Home (25,000, +36 percent, 424,000)
Daughtry, Life After You (17,000, -11 percent, 661,000)
Carrie Underwood, Cowboy Casanova (14,000, +23 percent, 1.31 million)
Kelly Clarkson, All I Ever Wanted (11,000, +7 percent, 79,000)
Carrie Underwood, Change (9,000, +2,001 percent, 53,000)
Carrie Underwood, Before He Cheats (5,000, +16 percent, 2.986 million)

Danny Gokey, My Best Days Are Ahead of Me (3,000, -4 percent, 94,000)

Idol-related tracks:

Jay-Z + Alicia Keys, Empire State of Mind (26,000, +17 percent, 2.948 million)
Alicia Keys, Un-Thinkable (14,000, +46 percent, 92,000)

  1. Hi Glambs 🙂
    I come from germany and i want to tell you that Adam is Number 1 on Itunes germany.God he is so awesome.The best singer ever on the planet.
    Tomorrow Adam will be in cologne to make some radio interviews.I can´t go to see him because I must work.That makes me sad but many other people of the german Fansite will go and support him.
    Greetings from germany
    Jazzy

    omg! Adam’s tickets went on sale this morning at 10 for Columbus Oh and I freaking missed it!!!!! Just now checked email and tried to order but it would not let me order even 1 ticket!!!!! Adams twitter said to be patient because more dates are gonna be added! Please Adam come to Louisville!!!!!

    • glamitup, I didn’t miss it for NY, but when I keyed in the password I received from the fan club, it would not take. I kept getting a message which said sorry………. General public tickets go on sale 5/01/10. I ended up going to an intermediary and bought the tickets there. Sure I’m paying a lot more for them, but I wanted those tickets now.

      My morning was wasted. I even called the Nokia theater at noon. Their tel. lines are supposed to be open. I tried a good hour and all I got was a recorded message.

      I’m very disappointed in the whole thing. However, my daughter, her husband and myself have tickets on the way. That’s how much we love Adam. I wish you all the best that you get your tickets!!

        My story about tickets is similar. I panicked because I haven’t seen Adam live yet and bought from an intermediary ($143) at 9:33 am. At 9:46 am I got the email with the password for the Toledo concert – Glitter 2010 – so I got a ticket ($44) thinking I can sell the pricier one. My advice is to wait for the email with the password for your city; it does work. I will wait until the email comes for the Royal Oak Music Theater concert.
        Good luck!

  5.

    • buffy522 says:

      looks like he didn’t make the top 100. How? I don’t know. I voted and voted. Then, after someone on this site pointed out, the Time site said it was over, but keep voting if you want? I have no idea how many times I voted with that message on there. Then it said the votes would be out Thursday. That was like three Thursdays ago. I saw on 4/28 that the list was divided into sections, and under “artist performer”, he was not listed. A couple I’ve never heard of, but most very established people. So…vote on VH1!

  8. Hi. i am from iran. i just wanna thank u for this beautifull webside. and wanted to say that ada has too many fans here. im really sad that i cant go to his concert. 🙁

  9. Ima Ramorah says:

    I’m confused? I thought Single(s) weren’t counted in awarding gold/platinum ????
    You had to download the entire album, which is why K.A. didn’t get there.

  10. HELP ME! I cannot find or get a code to buy presale tickets, nothing has been emailed to me and I am at a loss as to what to do? Any suggstion!?

  11. I want to buy tickets through the fan site too but I don’t know if we can choose the seating that we want. Does anyone know?

    Welcome to our new friend from Germany! Jazzy, you will enjoy this site, we have an amazing group of fans who are loving, caring and devoted people.

    Hug’s,
