Everyone was eagerly awaiting the Killers' new record, but Evanescence came out of nowhere to nab the top spot on the Billboard Top 200 album chart this week. Their fourth album "The Open Door" is their first time debuting at #1 and they beat out some pretty strong competition.

#2 was the Killers' "Sam's Town", their sophmore follow-up to the much-loved "Hot Fuss", #3 was country star George Strait, Tony Bennet's duets came in at #5, followed by Justin Timberlake who is slipping on his fourth week trying to bring sexy back.

Rounding out the top ten is Ludacris, Beck, Monica, Janet Jackson, and Oklahoma radio friendly rockers Hinder.
