No one can stop Pietro Lombardi from being the German chart champion and the guy clocks up a third week atop the countdown. Jennifer Lopez is once again immovable from the second position, while the Party Rock Anthem rises two positions and peaks at #3.
The highest new entry comes (somewhat surprisingly) by Brooke Fraser. The singer is a complete newcomer for the German charts, despite being a star in her native New Zealand. "Something In The Water" comes from Brooke's third studio album and its arrival at #9 just shows how Germans like radio-friendly songs.
The impact of Eurovision continues to be felt after the contest final three weeks ago. Thus Ireland-representatives, the annoying/funny (delete depending on taste) twins Jedward break the German top 20 boundary with their "Lipstick". The Pet Shop Boys influence is so obvious (especially in the video), which only helped the two boys to enter this week at #12.
The final new entry in the top 20 comes from newcomer Andreas Bourani at #16. There is not much to be said for the German singer, except that he has been recently on tour with local star Clueso.
A special mentioning for several peaks among the first twenty this week. After a steady and unbroken climb Adele scores a second top 10 single in Germany after "Set Fire To The Rain" rises to #8 from #13. A new peak also for Jupiter Jones' "Still" at #13, while Romanian star Alexandra Stan enters the top 20 for the first time. She is now officially more successful in Germany than peer Inna.
Further down the top 50 new peaks also by Natasha Bedingfield's "Pocketful Of Sunshine" at #32, DJ Antoine's "Welcome To St. Tropez" at #34, Pitbull's "Bon Bon", which soars from #92 to #39 and Bob Sinclar's "Far l'amore" at #46.

Apart from the entry of Jedward at #12, the Eurovision's winners, Azerbaijan's Ell and Nikki, enter this week at #33. As long as winning songs are concerned, this position can be considered a moderate success. Last year's "Satellite" was of course number one, while two years ago Alexander Rybak's "Fairytale" reached #4.
Thanks to the use of their music in a commercial of Vodafone, Australian duo Bag Raiders has its first single in the German charts as "Way Back Home" arrives new at #38. Seven positions below the tough times for German band Scooter continue as their latest "The Only One" enters the countdown at #45. If the song does not advance any further, it would be officially their least successful single ever. And if this was passable for previous single "Friends Turbo" as it was taken from a soundtrack and was actually a remix of an old Scooter song (it still reached #43), this time around there is nothing of consolation. The song is based on Charlatans' "The Only One I Know" from 1990, which never entered the German charts.
And the remaining new entries with videos:
#48 Eric Saade - Popular - A good new entry for the Swedish representative at Eurovision.
#54 Cee Lo Green - Bright Lights Bigger City - Perhaps the best single of Cee Lo so far.
#59 Jay Khan - Nackt - Jay was famous as part of US5, now he is known for his habit to walk naked on the streets...
#62 Jay Sean feat. Lil Wayne - Hit The Lights
#90 Electric Lady Lab - You & Me
Oh, and this week makes history as the fall of Krypteria's hymn of Borussia Dortmund to #80 from #6 is the biggest fall in the top 100 ever...
The Album Chart
The album charts all over the world have been stormed by Ms. Germanotta and Germany makes no exception. Lady Gaga's second LP shoots itself directly at #1 and thus becomes singer's second album to reach the summit after the multiplatin status of "The Fame". At the same time Adele and Soehne Mannheims swap places and take this week the second and the third positions, respectively
The top ten also sees new entries belonging to local soul diva Joy Denalane at #8 and Swedish metal gurus HammerFall at #9.
