'The Voice': Bigger Teams, More Blind Rounds in Season 2
'The Voice': Bigger Teams, More Blind Rounds in Season 2

As previously reported, the Billboard Hot 100's splashiest headline this week comes courtesy of Tony Bennett, who becomes the oldest living artist ever to appear on the tally. His duet with Amy Winehouse, "Body and Soul," enters the chart at No. 87, lifting the 85-year-old past then-84-year-old George Burns (in 1980) for the esteemed honor.

Still, other news infuses this week's chart.

Maroon 5's "Moves Like Jagger," featuring Christina Aguilera, spends a third week at No. 1 on the Hot 100, roaring to the No. 1 spot on Radio Songs and holding atop Digital Songs.

"Jagger" blasts 5-1 on Radio Songs with a 14% gain to 123 million all-format audience impressions, according to Nielsen BDS. The song marks Maroon 5's first No. 1 on the chart, passing the twin No. 5 peaks of "This Love" and "She Will Be Loved" in 2004. Aguilera celebrates her third time singing on the country's most-heard song: her debut pop smash "Genie in a Bottle" reigned for three weeks in 1999 and "Lady Marmalade," with Lil' Kim, Mya and P!nk, led for six frames in 2001.

The 5-1 vault of "Jagger" on Radio Songs is the greatest since Jay-Z and Alicia Keys' "Empire State of Mind" bounded 6-1 on the Nov. 28, 2009, chart.

"Jagger" leads Digital Songs for a fourth frame with 221,000 downloads sold (up 1%), according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Former Hot 100 No. 1 "Someone Like You" by Adele holds at No. 2 for a second week with Airplay Gainer honors. The ballad jumps into the Radio Songs top 10 (13-9), surging by 37% to 84 million. The track is the Greatest Gainer on Pop Songs (16-13) and Adult Contemporary (14-13), while bulleting at No. 4 on Triple A, No. 5 on Adult Pop Songs and No. 27 on Rock Songs.

Foster the People's "Pumped Up Kicks" holds at No. 3 on the Hot 100 for a fourth week. The song pushes 10-8 on Radio Songs (90 million, up 11%) and remains at No. 3 on Digital Songs (186,000, down 4%).

LMFAO's former six-week No. 1 - and Billboard's official song of the summer - "Party Rock Anthem," featuring Lauren Bennett and GoonRock (4-4) and Gym Class Heroes' "Stereo Hearts," featuring Maroon 5 lead singer Adam Levine (6-5), round out the Hot 100's top five. The latter song advances 5-4 on Digital Songs (144,000, down 1%) and 16-14 on Radio Songs (63 million, up 9%).

Bad Meets Evil's "Lighters," featuring Bruno Mars, slips 5-6 on the Hot 100 and Cobra Starship's "You Make Me Feel...," featuring Sabi, lifts 11-7 after reaching a previous high point of No. 8 two weeks ago. "Feel" flies to its new peak thanks to gains in digital sales (130,000, up 2%) and airplay (60 million, up 10%).

Closing out the Hot 100's top 10 are Rihanna's "Cheers (Drink to That)" (10-8); Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass" (7-9); and, Lady Gaga's "You and I" (8-10).

Outside the Hot 100's top tier, David Guetta's "Without You," featuring Usher, claims Digital Gainer accolades, charging 23-15. It roars 18-10 on Digital Songs, increasing by 71% to 104,000.

In addition to Bennett's bow with Winehouse, five other songs enter the Hot 100, led by Coldplay's "Paradise" at No. 16. The follow-up to the No. 14-peaking "Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall" opens as the band's third-highest debut, following "Speed of Sound" (No. 8, 2005) and "Viva La Vida" (No. 15, 2008).

"Paradise," the second single from the band's fifth studio album, "Mylo Xyloto," due Oct. 24, begins on Digital Songs at No. 6 (139,000). Radio is already supporting the song, as it launches on the Triple A adult alternative chart at No. 11 and Alternative Songs at No. 24. "Paradise" goes to pop and adult pop radio Oct. 3.

All charts, including the Hot 100, Digital Songs and Radio Songs, will be refreshed tomorrow (Sept. 22) on Billboard.com.
