At the moment it looks like a stable top three singles for this upcoming weeks chart, as Robin Thicke, Daft Punk and Passenger could potentially hold onto the 1, 2 and 3 positions respectively.

With other possible acts holding within the Top 10 being Jason DeRulo with “The Other Side”, Bastille and “Pompeii”, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis with their new US No.1 single “Can’t Hold Us” and Paramore’s “Still into You” could still land a Top 10 placement next week.

The Voice last week almost scored it’s first national Top 10 for this series when Harrison Craig debuted at No.13 with “Home” (Michael Buble), and now that they have finished the Showdowns this week, the potential for a first Top 10 might come from the operatic Luke Kennedy and “Time to Say Goodbye” (Andrea Bocelli, the original also potentially charting in the Top 70), and also with Celia Pavey’s “Woodstock” (Joni Mitchell) and Emma Pask’s version of “Mas Que Nada” (Sergio Mendes). Michael Stangel’s rendition of the Phillip Phillips (HP-56, Jan 2013) song “Home” could debut in the Top 20, pulling the original within the Top 40 this week too.

Lyric McFarlane’s rendition of “Let’s Stay Together” (Al Green/Tina Turner) and Caterina Torres’ version of “If I Were a Boy” (Beyonce) could crack the Top 30, and musical guests from Tuesday nights show The Wanted could also land there with their new single “Walks Like Rihanna”. And finally Danny Ross’ version of “All Along the Watchtower” (Bob Dylan/Jimi Hendrix) could make the Top 40.

Mariah Carey’s “#Beautiful” debuted in the USA at #22 this week, and here it could also land a Top 30 entry, up from its early sales debut of No.71 from this week’s most recent chart. Imagine Dragons could jump up with their current US Top 10 hit “Radioactive” and new entries could come from Bliss N’ Eso with “Home is Where the Heart is”, and Sheppard’s self titled EP (HP-92, April 2013) featuring “Let Me Down Easy” could bring the EP into the Top 50 for the first time.

With the announcement of the December tour for Taylor Swift, her duet with Ed Sheeran “Everything Has Changed” (former HP-75, Oct 2012) could be back inside the Top 50 this week, and Armin van Burren’s “This is What it Feels Like” could give him his first Top 50 hit here. Keith Urban has a potential new entry with “Little Bit of Everything”, as too does Demi Lovato with “Really Don’t Care”, and Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull team up for a third time on her new track “Live it Up”.

It’s been twelve years since a Baz Luhrman soundtrack has hit the top of the Australian charts, as he’s done it twice before with “Romeo & Juliet” (nine broken weeks from 19-Jan-97) and “Moulin Rouge” (11 straight weeks from 28-May-2001), whilst his first film soundtrack for “Strictly Ballroom” hit No.6 in the first week of September 1992 {“Australia” did not have a soundtrack that charted here}. The three above soundtracks all debuted high, then in their second week they reached their peaks, so if “The Great Gatsby” album debuts in the Top 5, it can only go higher once the film is released here at the end of May, but there are two versions of the soundtrack for sale, so combined they could potentially debut at the top.

Current Voice contestant Emma Pask could see her 2011 album “Some Other Spring” debut high this week, with her 2008 sets “This Madness Called Love” and “Emma” also possibly enter, whilst Knife Party have just released a new EP entitled “Haunted House”, which because it’s a four track EP will most likely debut over on the singles chart. Vampire Weekend could see their second Top 10 entry for their third album “Modern Vampires of the City” (“Contra” made it to No.2 in Jan 2010), and Demi Lovato could land higher than previously, as her third album “Demi” could surpass “Here We Go Again” (HP-40, August 2009) and “Unbroken” (HP-20, October 2011).

The debut album for New York duo MS MR entitled “Secondhand Rapture” could potentially debut inside the Top 20, as too Agnetha Faltskog’s “A”, which would surpass her two Top 50 entries from 1983 (Wrap Your Arms Around Me, HP-49) and 2004 (My Colouring Book, HP-50) and become her fourth charted album here in Australia. Imagine Dragons could see their “Night Visions” (HP-28) jump back up now that the set has two chart hits from it, and The Dillinger Escape Plan could see their first Top 50 entry for their fifth album “One of us is the Killer” {their 2010 fourth album “Option Paralysis” made it to No.53). Look out for Gloriana to possibly enter with their second album “A Thousand Miles Left Behind”, their first self-titled set made it to No.43 in February 2010.

Ahead of their new album “Random Access Memory”, Daft Punk’s 2001 album “Discovery” could return to the charts, as too could Bob Marley’s “Legend” thanks to The Voice performance of “Waiting in Vain”. Performances on The Voice could also bring Phillip Phillips’ “The World from the Side of the Moon” and “The Best of” Andrea Bocelli, and there could be chart entries for Natalie Maines with “Mother” and the new ‘Star Trek: Into Darkness’ soundtrack could enter the Australian charts this week too.
