by at . Comments

In a word, to answer the question posed in our headline: No.

A week after American Idol champion Scotty McCreery became the first series winner since 2003 to take his debut album to the top of the Billboard 200 chart, runner-up Lauren Alaina fell to Evanescence, whose self-titled third CD sold 127,000 copies in its first week, good enough for first place.

McCreery’s Clear As Day slipped down into fourth place following a 55 percent drop in sales, but managed to still beat out Alaina's "Wildflower." We've listed the week's top 10 below:

  1. Evanescence, Evanescence – 127,000 copies
  2. Adele, 21 – 111,000
  3. Five Finger Death Punch, American Capitalist – 91,000
  4. Scotty McCreery, Clear As Day – 88,000
  5. Lauren Alaina, Wildflower – 69,000

  7. Ryan Adams, Ashes and Fire – 49,000
  8. Lady Antebellum, Own The Night – 47,000
