As true "American Juniors" fan are already no doubt aware, the debut single from Fox's "American Juniors" will be released Tuesday, August 12 via Jive Records. The release will feature the reality talent show's 10 finalists singing the Cathy Dennis-written song "One Step Closer." Also included will be two mixes of the American Juniors performing a cover of Kim Wilde's 1982 hit "Kids in America."

While a quick check of the Amazon sales charts earlier this afternoon showed a surprisingly weak ranking of 5000+ for the CD, another check of the single's updated sales rank after the program's finale show the CD has rocketed surprising quick through the evening and is currently coming in at a ranking of #239.

While it's extremely doubtful the CD will see the sales strength of "American Idol 2" winner Ruben Studdard or have a performance anything close to that of runner-up Clay Aiken's nine week (and counting) #1 sales streak, we wish the kiddies the best of luck.

And for those wondering, "American Juniors" will follow their CD single release with the September 9, 2003 release of "Kids in America," a 10-track album featuring the "Juniors" finalists. currently shows the full album trailing just behind the CD single on the sales charts, coming in at #327.
