Miley Cyrus has scored her first number one in the U.K. singles chart with her party song We Can't Stop. The pop superstar ends Swedish DJ Avicii's three-week reign at the top of the countdown - his Wake Me Up slips to two, while British rapper Tinie Tempah enters at three with his 2 Chainz collaboration, Trampoline. Meanwhile, classical singers Richard and Adam Johnson, who rose to fame on reality TV show Britain's Got Talent, hold on to pole position in the U.K. albums chart with The Impossible Dream, fending off competition from The Civil Wars' self-titled release, which is new at two. The folk duo received a big boost in sales thanks to a simple Twitter.com post from soul singer Adele, who recently urged her 16 million followers to buy the band's new record.
