LOS ANGELES (AP) — It was a good night for models-turned-singers on “The Voice.” Both Josiah Hawley and Audrey Karrasch stay on Team Usher after separate battles. Usher also tried to steal coffeehouse singer Caroline Glaser from Team Blake. But Adam Levine wanted her too and she decides to go with Team Adam. Glaser had lost her battle round to 16-year-old Danielle Bradbery. She’s the youngest contestant and stays with Team Blake.

NEW YORK (AP) — “The Voice” is pulling ahead of “American Idol” in the ratings. Last week’s two episodes rank fourth and fifth, averaging around 13 and a-half million viewers. The two episodes of “Idol” rank sixth and ninth, averaging a million fewer viewers than The Voice. “Dancing With the Stars” is in seventh and tenth place. The top show of the week was the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship that was watched by more than 23 million people. That’s a bigger audience than the last two men’s championships.
