Two American Idol winners, Carrie Underwood and Lee DeWyze, go in dramatically different directions on this week's Billboard 200.
Carrie, who received one of CMT's Artist of the Year awards Tuesday during the taping of a ceremony that will air Friday, saw week-to-week sales of Play On rise 53%, according to Nielsen SoundScan. That's enough to push her up five spots on the Billboard chart in a week where a lot of albums saw huge sales increases. Her Some Hearts even jumped back on to The Billboard 200.
Lee DeWyze's Live It Up, on the other hand, nearly falls out of the top 100 in its second week, its weekly sales dropping 62% and its chart position going from No. 19 to No. 93.
