Small surprise in the top 5 this week. Not surprising is the Derby topping the list, with the Oaks right behind. The Oaks is today, but still time to get into the big race tomorrow. The Derby promises to be exciting as ever this year, and TicketCity personnel are down in Louisville to make sure you get your tickets.

The small surprise this week is Maná managing bypass some pretty famous performers to end up the top concert act on the list. Pretty magical, if you ask me.

The famous in question follow Maná, starting with Taylor Swift and ending up with the esteemed Mr. Bieber, who takes a pretty big tumble from the top of the list. ACL Fest follows as buzz builds for the announcement of the 2011 line-up. The full list goes out May 17th, so the fest will probably hang around the list for a few more weeks before the summer lul sets in.

Britney and Arcade Fire both return to the list after absences of various lengths. Recently ever-present in the bottom 5, the WWE again rounds out the list at #10 this week.

Less new stuff this week as all the top 5 hangs around, and most stay right where they were last week. The only change is Taylor Swift and Adele, who swap places. Taylor Swift’s show in Austin isn’t until October, but tickets went on sale recently, no doubt having a bit of an effect on her rankings this week. She did not manage to dethrone the esteemed Mr. Bieber. The Derby and Oaks are about a week away now, and interest remains strong. Still time to get your seats for “The most exciting 2 minutes in sports.”

The Heat’s entry into Round Two of the NBA playoffs pits them against the 2008 champs and 2010 runners-up Boston Celtics in what promises to be a very big series. They hang steady at #6 this week, but may surge as the games get underway next week.

Maná enters the countdown at #7. The Grammy Award winning Latin rock group has been around since 1978, releasing 8 studio albums so far. The most recent of them is Drama y Luz, their first album in over 5 years. With fans having such a long wait between albums, no wonder Maná is moving up the chart.

Rounding things out we have the Davis Cup returning, along with Katy Perry, both of whom will likely be around quite a bit as summer nears.
