Ed is a bigger name and apparently there was something to discuss since you brought it up. :lol:

There is no doubt in my mind that Sam will be nominated next year. I don't think you can be nominated for the same album two years in a row. Will it bother me if Sam isn't nominated? Hell no! I have awesome tickets to see Sam this summer but I'm hoping he cancels because my boyfriend paid way too much for the tickets.

Yea, it wouldn't bother me either if he isn't nominationed next year. No big deal.
If you go to the concert, you gotta tell me about it ;)

Last week it was #25 and this week it's #20. He could get back in the top 10 if he had another hit single. It's about time for Baby, You Make Me Crazy to be released as a single. Say It First would be another good choice for a single. I still can't believe One Last Song hasn't caught on yet.

His performance was 100 times better at the Brits than at the Grammys. The show itself was PC pathetic - not about the best British music anymore...
Didn't know he was performing at the Late Late show again, as well as the Grammys. So much prime spots promotion for this album but looks like it's underperforming at the moment.

I'm surprised the PTB haven't released a new sing yet. Get with it PTB!

I think the album is doing fine, it's the latest single that is underperforming if it's getting pushed right now. The album is still in the top 20 after 16 weeks in the US and it's number 11 in the UK. It's even doing better than Taylor Swift in both countries. :shock:

It's dropping now! Down to 35 this week. They are starting to mail out the CDs that you got when you purchased a ticket so I wonder if it will get a big bump like Bon Jovi did.

After 19 week it finally fell out of the top 50. Got my "free" CD in the mail yesterday so maybe it will jump up on the charts next week.

I thought his album's done reasonably well only because of the special deal? Those records were sold when you paid for your tickets not when they're dispached surely.

It doesn't work that way. Only the CDs redeemed count towards the chart and I just got my code two weeks ago.

Apparently it takes up to six months for them to count all the ones redeemed so it won’t make a jump up anytime soon.
