U2 hold off Lady Gaga in European albums chart

Rockers U2 are celebrating a sixth week atop the European albums chart after fending off competition from Lady Gaga and Diana Krall.

The band's latest release, 'No Line On The Horizon', remains unmoved - keeping Gaga's 'The Fame' in second place and new entry Krall at number three with 'Quiet Nights'.

Meanwhile, Gaga is still a winner in the European singles chart - 'Poker Face' holds on to pole position, leaving Flo Rida sitting at two with his track 'Right Round' and Enrique Iglesias' duet with Ciara, 'Takin' Back My Love', at three.

'Don't Upset The Rhythm (Go Baby Go)' by the Noisettes climbs three spots to number four, while the revamped Pussycat Dolls version of 'Jai Ho! (You Are My Destiny)' with A.R. Rahman, from the 'Slumdog Millionaire' movie, jumps up 15 places to enter the top five.
