Glee Cast Tops the Beatles for Billboard Record

It's official: Rachel Berry, Finn Hudson, Will Schuster, Sue Sylvester and the rest of the 'Glee' cast have more appearances on the Billboard Hot 100 chart than any other non-solo act in history--including the Beatles, the Associated Press reports.

The cast of Fox's musical hit show added six more debuts to the chart this week bringing their grand total to 75 songs--four more than the Beatles' 71. Last week's Britney Spears episode helped push the cast past the legendary British foursome.

While the 'Glee' cast has the most appearances on the Billboard Top 100 for a group, Elvis Presley still has the most appearances overall with 108 songs. James Brown is second with 91 and 'Glee' rounds out the top three.

Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin hold the fourth and fifth spots, respectively. The Beatles hold the sixth spot. Other artists in the Top 10 include Elton John, Lil Wayne, Stevie Wonder and Jay-Z.

Overall, the 'Glee' cast has sold 2.8 million albums and 11.5 million downloads. Just give these guys a few more seasons and they might find themselves in the number one spot!
