'The Voice'/'American Idol' power rankings (week 1)by jmaloni
Here's how entertainment editor Joshua Maloni ranks the singers/groups on "The Voice" and "American Idol" this week.
'The Voice' power list
1. Juliet Simms - She's "Automatic," and a rock star, and that seems to be what the coaches favor through week one of the "Battle Round."
2. Jesse Campbell - Face it: Right now, he is "The Voice."
3. RaeLynn - Her country connection is stronger than ever.
4. Jordis - Despite a misstep in her "Battle Round," the "Rock Star: INXS" finalist still has more stage presence - and more seasoned pipes - than many of her competitors.
5. Justin Hopkins - The "Last Call" vet is talented and über-marketable.
'American Idol' power list
1. Colton Dixon - Is it me, or was he the only performer comfortable on stage?
2. Joshua Ledet - He is the show's most gifted singer.
3. Shannon Magrane - She's talented, and the judges all want to adopt her.
4. Phillip Phillips - This guy is a modern-day Dave Matthews.
5. Erika Van Pelt - Don't discount the wedding singer. Or pay her in meatballs.
