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

"I think if you ain't careful, you might win 'American Idol, '" raved Luke.

Both competition shows have seen major changes this season, with Idol returning to the airwaves for the first time in two years and the original Idol victor, Clarkson, serving as a first-time coach on NBC's rival series.

Jokes aside, it really was all fun and games in the end and the judges gave Sussett a golden ticket to Hollywood, because they thought she was super fun. "What if they're missing a toe?"

The pop star tumbled over while she was dancing with a contestant on stage and was left struggling to preserve her modesty. Luckily, her somewhat over-the-top rendition of Ariana Grande's "Dangerous Woman" was enough to convince the judges to save her from a life of drudgery and send her to Hollywood. The producers liked her personality enough to put her in an interstitial Macy's commercial with Ryan Seacrest. He had the judges singing along with him, but there was no ticket for him. It was a no.

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