Morning click: Keys can't top Boyle, Beyonce and Gaga leak new songs

- Alicia Keys proved to be no match for chart queen Susan Boyle, who reigns supreme at the top of the Billboard charts for the fourth consecutive week. Keys moved 405,000 copies of "The Element of Freedom," but Boyle's "I Dreamed a Dream" -- sure to be found in the stockings of countless great aunts tomorrow morning -- sold a whopping 659,000 copies, moving past the 2.5 million mark.

- A pair of pop divas have leaked new songs as early Christmas presents to their fans, or blogs struggling for late-December content. New tracks from Beyonce ("Black Culture") and Lady Gaga ("Kandy Life") are out there for your listening pleasure. And there's also some weird new photo of Kanye West and Gaga that's right on the borderline of NSFW, but there's probably nobody in the office today, so...

- Looking for something to do on Christmas Eve? Rob Tannenbaum's comedy/cabaret/music revue "Good for the Jews" will be at Jammin' Java in Vienna. Style's Dan Zak interviewed Tannenbaum a few years ago: "In December, when Jews are being assaulted by the dominant culture of Christmas, it's fun to get two or three hundred Jews together in a room and celebrate Hanukkah and laugh at ourselves"
