Evanescence dislodge Kelly.

Us band Evanescence went straight to the top of the UK single charts tonight with their debut single Bring Me To Life.

The young quartet, who hail from Little Rock in Arkansas, the home town of former US president Bill Clinton, have been enjoying success in the album charts where Fallen is currently at number 4.

Meanwhile, the much-ridiculed boyband One True Voice, spawned from ITV show Popstars: The Rivals entered the charts at a respectable number 10 with Shakespeare's (Way With) Words.

One True Voice are struggling to follow in the footsteps of their female rivals from the show, Girls Aloud, whose two singles have entered the charts at number one and number two respectively.

R&B star R Kelly, who is facing porn allegations in the US - including claims that he videoed himself having sex with a 13-year-old girl - drops to number two with Ignition Remix after enjoying three weeks in the top spot.

Busta Rhymes and Mariah Carey have kept hold of their number three spot with I Know What You Want, while S Club's farewell double A side Say Goodbye/Love Ain't Gonna Wait For You dropped two places to number four. Lower down, shock rocker Marilyn Manson's effort, Mobscene, came in at number 13, one place above former Spice Girl Mel C's On The Horizon.

In the album charts, Welsh band Stereophonics shot straight to the top with You Gotta Go There To Come Back, pipping S Club's greatest hits album, which was also released this week.

Metallica's St Anger made it a top three of new entries, while Justin Timberlake fell from number one to number five.
