“The Voice” is having its best iTunes showing of the season in the wake of Monday’s semifinal episode.

As of 12:55AM ET Tuesday morning, Jake Hoot’s rendition of “Desperado” is #1 on the all-genre US iTunes song sales chart. Ricky Duran’s “Let It Be” closely follows at #3.

Currently #10, Rose Short’s “I Want To Know What Love Is” gives the show a third track inside the current Top 10.

Other high-ranking recordings include Katie Kadan’s “Lady Marmalade” (#16) and Kat Hammock’s “Somewhere Only We Know” (#43).
