Does Katy Perry make it two weeks at No. 1 with ‘E.T.?’

Katy Perry and her ode to extraterrestrial love, “E.T.” featuring Kanye West, celebrate their second week at No. 1 on a fairly static Billboard Hot 100. Rihanna also stays put at No. 2 with “S&M,” as the Black Eyed Peas soar 5-3 with “Just Can’t Get Enough,” knocking Cee Lo Green’s “F**k You” down a spot to 4.

There is minimal rearranging within the Top 10 as “Born This Way” moves 4-5, Chris Brown’s “Look At Me Now” featuring Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes moves 7-6, Jeremih’s “Down On Me” featuring 50 Cent goes up 9-7, Jennifer Lopez’s “On the Floor” featuring Pitbull moves 10-8 and Pink’s “F**kin’ Perfect” goes 8-9.

The big news doesn’t come until the end of the Top 10: Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” leaps 17-10, giving the British singer her first Hot 100 Top 10. Over on the Triple A airplay chart, she is spending her 10th week at the summit, which ties “Rolling” with Sarah McLachlan’s “Building A Mystery” for the longest stint at the top by a solo female artist.

Other than Adele, the main action is outside of the Top 10 as Lil Wayne’s “John,” the second single from “Tha Carter IV,” soars 57-22 on the Hot 100. We’ll see if it surpasses the No. 9 peak of first single, “6 Foot 7 Foot.”

It’s not success of a “Glee”-type proportion, but Sara Ramirez’s  cover of Brandi Carlile’s “The Story,” featured in “Grey’s Anatomy’s” musical edition last week, bows at No. 69 on the HOt 100 fueled by downloads.
