Susan Boyle's powerful arrival was not enough to stop Robbie Williams from recording a third week at the top of Billboard's European Albums chart with "Reality Killed The Video Star" (Virgin/EMI).

Black Eyed Peas achieve the super-rare feat of replacing themselves at No. 1 on European Hot 100 Singles, as "Meet Me Halfway" (Interscope/Universal) moves 6-1, passing "I Gotta Feeling" going in the other direction, 1-3.

Williams is down 4-9 in the United Kingdom, but holds at No. 2 in Germany. Its overall sales hold Michael Jackson at No. 2 with "This Is It" (Epic/Sony Music Entertainment), which retains top three placings in Italy and the Belgian region of Flanders, falling 2-3 in each.

Scottish singing sensation Boyle's debut set "I Dreamed A Dream" (Syco Music/Sony Music Entertainment), therefore, starts at No. 3 on European Albums, despite recording the U.K.'s highest-ever opening sales for a debut artist of 411,000. It also opens at No. 1 in Ireland and No. 10 in Spain, and races 68-8 in France.

In its 46th week on the pan-European survey, Lady Gaga's "The Fame" (Interscope/Universal) rebounds 40-4, boosted by the release of a new two-CD edition, "The Fame Monster." That's up 55-7 in the United Kingdom, 28-3 in Germany and 35-4 in Ireland. Gaga has five singles in the European Hot 100, with "Bad Romance" up 11-4.

Rihanna returns to the Europe-wide survey at No. 5 with "Rated R" (SRP/Def Jam/Universal), starting at No. 4 in Germany, No. 10 in France and No. 16 in the United Kingdom, the latter with sales of 39,000 units. The single "Russian Roulette" makes its U.K. debut at No. 6 and holds at No. 5 in Sweden, climbing 5-2 behind "Meet Me Halfway" on European Hot 100 Singles. The latter track climbs 2-1 in Flanders.

Norah Jones takes a second-week dip with "The Fall" (Blue Note/EMI), which is off 3-6 Europe-wide despite a No. 2 debut in Sweden. All the remaining titles on the collective European album chart are also on the slide: Black Eyed Peas' "The E.N.D. (The Energy Never Dies)" 6-7, Queen's "Absolute Greatest" (Parlophone/EMI) 5-8, Michael Buble's "Crazy Love" (Reprise/Warner Music) 8-9 and Leona Lewis' "Echo" (Syco Music/Sony Music Entertainment) 4-10.

"The E.N.D." climbs 5-3 in the United Kingdom, where the Queen compilation slips 3-4 and Buble is up 8-6; Lewis' second album falls 1-5 in its second week there, with sales of 74,000 making a two-week tally to last weekend of 235,000.
