Robin Thicke has kept Katy Perry off the top of the U.S. pop charts as his Blurred Lines hit scores a 12th week at number one.

The tune, which was the soundtrack to Miley Cyrus' controversial stage routine at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night (25Aug13), becomes one of only 14 hits to land 12 weeks or more at the top of the Billboard Hot 100.

Perry's Roar stays put at two, while Cyrus' We Can't Stop holds at three and Lady Gaga returns to the top five with Applause at four.

Rounding out the new top five is Imagine Dragons' Radioactive, which this week celebrates a year on the Hot 100 chart.
