Billboard has released its year-end music charts for 2013, and they’re sprinkled with former American Idol contestants.

Phillip Phillips leads the way, based on the performance of his debut album and his first two singles from that album.

“The World from the Side of the Moon” checked in at number 14 on the year-ending Billboard 200 chart.

That placed his between “The Lumineers” at number 13 and “The Heist” by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis at number 15.

“Home,” Phillips’ mega-hit from Idol, checked in at number 46 on lists of Billboard’s top singles from 2013; the song was number 49 on last year’s chart.

The followup, “Gone, Gone, Gone” was number 61 on the year-end chart.

Billboard’s Top Artists chart for 2013 lists Phillip at number 26.

The other two former Idol contestants to make that list were Carrie Underwood and Kelly Clarkson.

For perspective, Kelly was number 16 on the 2012 top artist list.
