Amy Winehouse, Adele and Susan Boyle Top of the Pops in Australia

December 16, 2011

Amy Winehouse finished the year of her death with a Top 10 placing in Australia's album charts. Her posthumous album, Lioness: Hidden Treasures, was eighth in a listing released Monday and headed by fellow British singer Adele.

Susan Boyle, who toured in November, was second on a list compiled by the Australian Recording Industry Association that also included fellow crooner Tony Bennett.

Winehouse, whose album features original tracks and covers, is top of the album charts in Britain.

An inquest found the 27-year-old was more than five times the legal drink-drive limit when she was found dead in her London home in July.
