Glee - Glee Smashes Presley's Chart Record In Britain

The cast of GLEE has smashed ELVIS PRESLEY's U.K. pop chart record by becoming the fastest act to score 20 top 40 hits.
The all-singing, all-dancing TV show, starring Lea Michele and Matthew Morrison, has wowed viewers since it debuted in 2009 and fans have flocked to buy songs performed on the series.
Glee's Britney Spears tribute episode aired in the U.K. last week (17Jan11), and the cast's rendition of Toxic entered the charts on Sunday (23Jan11), giving the show's stars their 20th hit in just 57 weeks - 31 weeks ahead of Elvis' record.
Martin Talbot, the managing director of the Official Charts Company, tells Britain's The Independent, "The success emphasises how digital downloading has transformed the consumer's engagement with music. The Glee cast are superstars of the digital music age."
