Opera Stars Make Uk Chart History

Tenors ANDREA BOCELLI, VITTORIO GRIGOLO and RUSSELL WATSON have made UK chart history by each having an opera album in the top ten. Watson's ULTIMATE COLLECTION enters at number two, Bocelli's AMORE slips to five, and Grigolo's IN THE HANDS OF LOVE is a new entry at number six - the first time three operatic LPs have made the top ten simultaneously. CORINNE BAILEY RAE's massive selling eponymous disc reclaims top spot from PINK FLOYD legend DAVE GILMOUR, who slips to number four with ON AN ISLAND. JACK JOHNSON's IN BETWEEN DREAMS is a non-mover at number four. US pop-rockers ORSON leap-frog THE X FACTOR star CHICO to claim top spot on the UK singles chart with NO TOMORROW. THE BLACK EYED PEAS climb 13 places to claim third position with PUMP IT, and rapper WILL.I.AM is also number four with his guest spot on THE PUSSYCAT DOLLS' BEEP. CORINNE BAILEY RAE is non-mover at five with PUT YOUR RECORDS ON.
