The UK boyband’s Up All Night was challenged this week by pop chanteuse Kate Miller-Heidke’s Nightflight bursting into the chart at number two.

After that, we have Cold Chisel, Adele, a surprisingly resilient Bob Seger, Hilltop Hoods, Ed Sheeran, Skrillex, The Black Keys, and the evergreen Florence + The Machine’s Ceremonials rounding out the top ten.

It was a good week for new entries (hits collections notwithstanding), with Train’s California 37 coming in at 14, Florence + The Machine’s MTV Unplugged at 17, Jason Mraz’s Love Is A Four Letter Word at 23, and Seal’s Hits at 24.

Then we have Michael Bolton’s Gems duets at 26, Gin Wigmore’s Gravel & Wine at 29, Alston’s Don’t Funk With Me at 42, a Neil Diamond best of at 43, and James Morrison’s The Awakening creeping in at number 50.

The Voice has certainly helped Seal and also Keith Urban, whose Greatest Hits came back into the charts at 21.

Flop of the week is Madonna’s MDNA, which has slumped from 19 all the way to 41 in its fourth week.

The Voice’s Delta Goodrem couldn’t quite bump Carly Rae Jepsen from the top of the Singles Chart, her new single ‘Sitting On Top Of The World’ debuting at number two.

Florence + The Machine also benefit on the singles chart, with ‘Never Let Me Go’ shooting from 18 to number three.

And more Voice influence, with Seal’s ‘Kiss From A Rose’ coming back in at 31 and Kate Bush’s ‘Wuthering Heights’ classic re-entering at 39, presumably due to a whole generation who had never heard it until it was performed by a contestant on the show.
