The week was otherwise dominated by Justin Bieber and The Voice.

More Keith Urban More Keith Urban

Keith Urban has jumped Missy Higgins to be the top ranked Australian artist on the ARIA Album Charts this week, as teenage pop juggernaut Justin Bieber goes top.

As predicted in the Mid-Week Chart analysis, Bieber took top spot with new album Believe, while Urban's The Story So Far ranks second and Higgins' The Ol' Razzle Dazzle is third.

Enjoying a stellar second week, the Rock Of Ages soundtrack shot to four this week, after debuting at 33 last week.

The highest debut outside of Bieber was Metric's Synthetica, on new Dew Process imprint Create/Control, at 21.

With Universal aiming for a top 20 lock-out in the ARIA Singles Chart this week, they got very close with The Voice's winner Karise Eden taking the top three spots and fifth with Stay With Me Baby, Hallelujah, I Was Your Girl and You Won't Let Me respectively. Eden has smashed two ARIA records this week and achieved feats comparable only to The Beatles.

Never before has an artist had four songs in the top five and she's the first artist to have three debuts in the top five. The last time an act had as many top spots was in April 1964 when The Beatles held the top six positions. Eden has six tracks in the top 15.

With fellow Voice contestant Sarah De Bono at four with Beautiful, the top five artists are local. Darren Percival's Damage Down sits at eight.

Timmy Trumpet has gone to the top of the ARIA Club Chart with Chardy this week.
