For the first time since the Carrigan Countdown made it's debut, a band got to hold onto its Number One Spot on the Countdown, as for two consecutive weeks the X Ambassadors own the number one song in the nation with "Renegades." 
The entire top three was able to stay put as Taylor Swifts "Wildest Dreams" was held off for another week, and former number one "Photograph" by Ed Sheeran also stayed in the number 3 spot. 
Omi's "Cheerleader" took a mighty slide from number 5 to number 14 on the week, being supplemented by Andy Grammars "Honey I'm Good." R.City featuring Adam Levine on the track "Locked Away" made a big jump from number 11 all the way to number 4.
No song made a bigger climb than "Hello" by Adele - the top climber from last week, making its debut at 29, cracked the top ten and secured a spot at number 8, jumping a huge 21 spots in only one week.
