LONDON (Reuters) - Rising star Mika's reign at the top of the UK single and album charts came to an end on Sunday when he was ousted from the number one spots by indie band the Kaiser Chiefs and singer Amy Winehouse.


"Ruby" from Leeds group the Kaiser Chiefs ended the singer-songwriter's five week dominance of the singles' chart, pushing the Beirut-born Londoner's "Grace Kelly" into second, the Official UK Charts Company said.


R&B star Kelis climbed 12 places to third with "Lil Star", knocking hip hop artists Akon and Snoop Dogg's "I Wanna Love You" down to fourth with Denver pop group Fray's "How to Save a Life" moving up to fifth.


"Catch You" by Sophie Ellis-Bextor was the only other big climber, up 16 places to eighth.


Meanwhile Winehouse's "Back To Black" took the top spot in the album chart swapping places with Mika's debut "Life in Cartoon Motion".


Indie band Snow Patrol stayed in third place with "Eyes Open", while Fray's "How To Save A Life" rose 101 places to fourth.


Reformed boy band Take That were in fifth with "Beautiful World".

IF Mika is ready with the shooting of the new video he should bring the release date of 'LOVE TODAY' forward, or the download date should be poss soon, although most will have it anyway from the CD.


By the way, the Chiefs will not dominate the spot for 5 weeks now as there is too much strong competition
