Not with Ads, I mean the plain listing of results saying "Results 1 - 10 of about 139,000,000 for ..."
Without the ads at the top, the entries are showing 1 with a picture next to it (like we know for youtube videos) and there 11, not 10 entries!
Looks like the extra picture result adds 1 to the list. Was that discussed already? Not sure what it means, but the headline is for sure wrong... "Results 1 - 11 of about #*$!X for YYYY" would be more appropriate!
Celebrity artist names seem to be particularly useful for seeing this "eleven effect". In fact, I've found one search that returns 12 items - including 2 YouTube results. I wonder if YouTube results are the ones that don't count toward the ten results that Google reports.
In fact, while looking into this, I discovered that Google now integrates specialized "musicsearch results". But the patterns are a bit odd when more than one "extra" result shows up. Books results also don't seem to count toward the ten results, but News Archive results do seem to.
Definitely bears a deeper look.

I just checked a few other sites by name (again, not by domain) and found the same thing. Is this something new, or have I just been unobservant all these years?
So no, sitelinks are not what we're discussing here. We're talking about an apparent effect of Universal Search where there are sometimes 11 or 12 distinct result "paragraphs" on page #1
