Aussie DJ Havana Brown has bulleted up the Billboard Hot 100 singles charts this week, thanks to a performance on America's Got Talent. Brown's We Run The Night, which features a Pitbull guest verse, has now spent 16 weeks in the chart and Brown is becoming a bona-fide star in the States.

In recent weeks the track had stalled around the 40-mark, but she's jumped to her highest point of 35 this week and been given the 'bullet performer' accolade. Watch the TV spot, which she sings, DJs and dances in, below:

The only other big gains for Australian acts this week came in the Dance/Club Play chart, with Kylie Minogue's Timebomb climbing to three in its fifth week and given the 'Greatest Gainer' tag. Melbourne duo Nervo, now based in London, also climbed to 30 in its second week with You're Gonna Love Again. The track seems destined to crack the commercial chart if it keeps gathering momentum.

After strong weeks last week, Gotye and Kimbra took hits in the albums chart, with Gotye's Making Mirrors dropping from six to 37 and Kimbra's Vows apparently falling off the top 200.

Australia's domination of the Christian chart fell away as well, with Hillsong Live's Cornerstone dropping from one to two and Newsboys' God's Not Dead dropping from two to ten.
