Il Divo's latest releases will be stuffed inside plenty of Christmas stockings this year.

The pop-opera supergroup's "Christmas Collection" remained at No. 1 for a second consecutive week with sales of 51,000, while their latest studio disc, "Siempre" (36,000), held firm to the No. 2 position, according to Nielsen SoundScan figures.

Both albums have now sold a combined total of 192,000 copies in the last three weeks.

Meanwhile, Sarah McLachlan's "Wintersong" continued to cash in with holiday shoppers, moving from No. 4 to No. 3 with just under 34,000 in sales.

The biggest debuts of the week went to Gwen Stefani's "The Sweet Escape" at No. 4, and Eminem's mixtape-style showcase "The Re-Up" at No. 5.

The Beatles remix collection "LOVE" dropped three spots to No. 6, while Josh Groban's "Awake" and "MuchDance 2007" both slipped two to No. 7 and No. 8.

Mes Aieux's "Tire-Toi Une Buche" occupied the No. 9 slot, and U2's "U218 Singles" hung onto the No. 10 position, after placing seventh last week.

Other debuts in the Top 75 included Ciara's "The Evolution" at No. 32 and Keshia Chante's "2U" at No. 61.

In the U.S., Ciara came in at No. 1 with 338,000 copies sold, followed by Eminem in second, Gwen Stefani in third, Disney's "Hannah Montana" soundtrack in fourth, and "NOW 23" in fifth.
