Will Darin Manage to Beat Timoteij and Bergendahl?

With only one week left to the final of Melodifestivalen, we will soon know who will represent Sweden in the Eurovision Song Contest in Oslo this May. This week’s singles tally is, not unexpectedly, dominated by singles from the contest. Anna Bergendahl claims the top spot with the finalist entry “This Is My Life.”

The girl group Timoteij managed to oust Darin in the competition with “Kom,” and they also beat him on the singles tally. Timoteij trails Anna Bergendahl at No.2, while Darin enters at No.9 with “You’re Out of My Life.”  Last week’s chart-topper Play falls back 1-5 with “Play,” while Lady Gaga remains at No.3 with “Bad Romance.” Brolle falls 2-7 with “Anything She Wants” and Donkeyboy’s “Ambitions” moves one notch to No.8.

UK No.1 Jason Derulo returns to the charts with “In My Head,” which enters at No.14.  His “Whatcha Say” peaked at No.4 last fall. It’s also interesting to note that Timbaland and Katy Perry bows at No.58 with “If We Ever Meet Again.” It’s the second single to chart from Shock Value II, following the No.14 peak of “Morning After Dark.”

The Playtones remains at No.1 with Rock’n’Roll Dance Party while Sade remains at No.2 with Soldier of Love. The highest new entry comes from Sophie Zelmani, who is back on the charts after a two years hiatus with her ninth album I’m the Rain. Her biggest success to date is the 2008 set The Ocean and Me.
