The show for this coming weekend features a very interesting cross-section of musical generations, in a sense. For you see, this weekend's show will feature acts in their...
Teens: Ella Henderson, and all but the single oldest members of Echosmith and Fifth Harmony (Echosmith have this week's Subway Fresh Buzz Song, Fifth Harmony an Extra.) 20s: Way too many to name! 30s: Usher, Ne-Yo, Mark Ronson, just to name a few. 40s: Eminem, who's a part of the week's Two-For-One. Also worth noting that Juicy J is just a few weeks shy of 40. 50s: Madonna; "Living For Love" enters the survey. 60s: James Newton Howard, whose "Hanging Tree" is an Extra. And, 70s: Paul McCartney.
Can anyone think of any other time where so many different age decades were represented in one countdown show?
Also worth noting, for the 40s: Snoop Dogg had been in the survey, featured on the song "Stuck on a Feeling" by Prince Royce. Well, that song falls off this week and doesn't turn up anywhere else, which would have prevented the musical chain from happening if not for Eminem.

"Flowers" by Miley Cyrus duplicates that feat this past weekend, reaching #1 in just its 5th week, and jumping from #5, which Ryan said hadn't been done since 2018 (by Ariana Grande, "God Is A Woman").
Also to mention that Ryan pulls an early AT40 Casey by mentioning this feat in the show open. Suspense, anyone?
Also in this show: Biggest mover was "Love Again" by The Kid Laroi (40-28), and yet the week's highest debut came later at #26: "Special" by Lizzo & SZA.
