"I wanted to save it for my first relationship. I wanted it to be special."

American Idol won the night of its big premiere Sunday, even beating out Fox's O.J. Simpson interview.

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.

So who won the singing competition competition??

QUIZ: Which American Idol Reboot Judge Are You???

ABC's Idol dropped from its premiere high of 10.3 million viewers (which was in fact an historic low for Idol premieres) to 8.4 mil, with a 1.8 rating in the key adults 18-49 demo.

But The Voice stood triumphant, even beating out Idol's premiere numbers with 11.7 million, and a 2.3 rating!

What's more, that was about the same as last week when they didn't have another singing show to compete with. Dang.

Is it just us, or do a LOT of people watch American Idol to see the absurd wanna-be contestants rejected early in the very first episodes??

Because if Katy Perry's recent comments are to be believed, it sure sounds like this season's American Idol judges — Perry, Luke Bryan, and Lionel Richie — are going to change things up in a MAJOR way!

Poor Kelly Ripa — things probably aren't going to work out for her as a professional singer!

The Live host decided to try her hand at American Idol auditions on Friday afternoon after being encourage by daytime co-host Ryan Seacrest, and as you can see (above)… uh… it didn't go so well!!!

Of course, the segment is still a must-watch, if only to see Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan, and Katy Perry literally falling all over each other in their judge roles to say something polite to Kelly as they offer feedback from her audition.

Some people just don't have what it takes for various parts of showbiz, and regardless of whether she grew up with "the voice of an angel," it's probably not going to get Kelly Ripa a ticket to Hollywood.

Aw, shucks!! LOLz!!

LOVES the segment!!! U???
