Brit awards winners and performers have seen the customary upturn in sales after Wednesday's ceremony, with the Killers and Amy Winehouse enjoying the healthiest pick-ups.

Comparing Thursday's album sales with those of the previous Thursday, U.K. market-leading music retailer HMV U.K. and Ireland has compiled a top ten of Brits successes.

The Killers saw sales of their "Sam's Town" (Vertigo) album rise by 312%, while Amy Winehouse's "Back To Black" (Island) went up by 199%. The album is expected to improve from its current U.K. albums chart position of No. 5 to No. 2 this Sunday. Both acts performed at the ceremony and walked away with awards.

Take That, who performed their comeback hit "Patience" (Polydor), which the public subsequently awarded a Brit for best single, saw their album "Beautiful World" rise by 164%. Double Brit winners Arctic Monkeys, who didn't attend or perform at the ceremony, also enjoyed a boost, with sales of "Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not" (Domino) going up by 158%.

Oasis, who picked up a Brit for Outstanding Contribution To Music and closed the show with a rousing five-song set, saw sales of their hits collection, "Stop The Clocks" (Big Brother), rise by 154%. Other beneficiaries included Snow Patrol (143%), Red Hot Chili Peppers (107%), James Morrison (99%), Muse (98%) and The Fratellis (91%).
