Adam Lambert Scores Again in Australia

After Adam Lambert’s August 2nd performance of “Ghost Town” on Australia’s version of The Voice, it shot to #1 on their iTunes chart, where it stayed for over a week, earning Lambert 2 weeks at #2 on the ARIA singles chart. That song was already an established Top 20 hit in the Land Down Under.

Now, a “stunning rendition of ‘Another Lonely Night'” on Australia’s X Factor is driving the buzz machine once more. Check out Australia’s iTunes chart here, on which “Ghost Town” is pushing back into the Top 40, and “Another Lonely Night” makes its first appearance in the Top 30. Meanwhile, The Original High jumped back onto the albums chart at #20. On Kworb’s global iTunes chart (with weighted country classes), Adam now sits at #s 52, and 182 with “Ghost Town” and “Another Lonely Night,” while The Original High clocks in at #187, based almost exclusively on its strong Australia ranking.
