1D patiently bided their time before finally returning to the top of the countdown. Their ascendancy is somewhat bittersweet, since the former champ, Mumford & Sons had to take an unexpected hiatus due to a medical condition affecting bassist Ted Dwane.

The first game is this weekend, and almost two weeks of the best in college baseball follows at TD Ameritrade Park.
Bieber manages to hold onto the sixth spot, currently his best performance in weeks. Bruno Mars has a bit of a surge, up from last place. Beyoncé moves in the opposite direction, ending down at #8, while Taylor Swift takes over last place from Bruno.
