US singer Justin Timberlake has topped the UK singles chart with Mirrors.

Bastille's new entry Pompeii was at number two, while last week's number one, One Direction's cover of Blondie's One Way Or Another, fell to three.

Timberlake rose from 28 to four last week following his performance of Mirrors at the Brit Awards.

The top two albums remained unchanged from last week, with Emeli Sande's Our Version Of Events at number one, above Babel by Mumford and Sons.

The soundtrack to the Hollywood blockbuster Les Miserables climbed up two places in the album chart from five to three, while Ben Howard's Every Kingdom stayed at four.

Baauer's Harlem Shake - the song behind the latest internet dance craze - fell from three to eight in the singles chart, while Macklemore and Ryan Lewis's Thrift Shop dropped from two to four.

Avicii vs Nicky Romero's previous number one, I Could Be The One, stayed at five.

Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars stayed at six and seven with I Knew You Were Trouble and When I Was Your Man respectively.

Timberlake recently unveiled his first single since 2006, Suit and Tie, which featured rapper Jay-Z and producer Timbaland. He is going to release an album later this year.

His last album, FutureSex/LoveSounds, released in 2006, was the second solo effort from the former N'Sync member, after which he took a break from music to work as an actor in movies such as The Social Network.
