In a close race, Taylor Swift’s Fearless sold 3,216,000 copies.  Susan Boyle’s I Dreamed a Dream came in second place with 3,103,000. You can read the original article here.

Susan did win on physical sales. More people chose to buy physical CDs from Susan. Of course this blatantly exposes the age difference of who’s buying the CDs.

Susan still has to catch up with the Fearless One in overall sales.  Since Tay’s album is over the five million mark, that means she still needs to sell a couple of million more.  I’ll be fair though.  Susan’s album rise was impressive for that short amount of time.

Taylor is attending People’s Choice Awards tonight where she is nominated for three awards.  The awards show airs tonight on CBS at 9pm EST.

PCA will be streaming live video from the red carpet and backstage. Starting at 7:30ET get all the backstage buzz  at peopleschoice.com. You can follow the PCAs through twitter @peopleschoice.

Taylor’s not a scheduled performance tonight.  If you can’t wait, the following video has been making the rounds lately.  It’s an impromptu karaoke performance of Gunpowder and Lead by Taylor joined by Mallary Hope on a Christmas party.
