The Voice beats American Idol in first head-to-head battle

Initially, the judges were like "nah, dog", as we can see from the below photo, but if you think Bryan, Perry, and Richie are immune to the rollicking beats of an impromptu dance party, you don't know your "Roar" from your "Hello". Some truly incredible voices-and some pretty unique ones, too-got their chance to sing for the judges and earn that coveted golden ticket to Hollywood. Her fellow AI judges, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie, also had a good chuckle about the "Swish Swish" songstress' onscreen snafu. Glaze nervously agreed, and when he leaned in for a second cheek-kiss, Perry turned her face so their lips connected, which surprised Glaze so much he fell backward. After telling pieces of his heartbreaking story, Francisco sat down to perform an acoustic rendition of Stevie Wonder's "Isn't She Lovely". He is going to Hollywood.

Brandon, a 21-year-old college student from Ashburn, VA, who now resides in Boston, MA, sang "Unaware" by Allen Stone and received three yeses from the judges.

Nineteen-year-old Benjamin Glaze got more than he bargained for when he appeared on American Idol.

17-year-old Garrett Jacobs did his grandma, Honey, proud with his audition and even though she couldn't be there in-person, the judges made sure he got her on the phone to hear he was on his way to Hollywood! And Lionel explained that Rissa sucked him into her world with the beauty of her voice.

Ramesh Ponnuru: Republican leaders will cave in on Trump tariffs
Several spoke of how excessive "dumping" of steel and aluminum imports had negatively affected their jobs and families. Trump says he's sticking with his initial plan for import tariffs of 25 percent on steel and 10 percent on aluminum.

But on Monday the Katy Perry-powered reboot faced its real rival - NBC's ratings juggernaut The Voice, with their secret weapon - lovable Idol alum Kelly Clarkson.

The 26-year-old next artist, William Casanova sang "A Song For You" for all three new judges of the singing reality show. It was then that Sussett asked the judges to stand up and dance with her.

The auditions keep rolling SUNDAY 8|7c as American Idol's journey continues on America's network, ABC!
