Katy Perry's time so far as a new judge on American Idol is doing little to calm fears she's out of her depth on the once-hit show's ABC reboot.

Ratings are in for Monday's first head-to-head matchup of A.I. against NBC's The Voice.

Unfortunately for Perry, the competition crushed by a whopping 34 percent — The Voice managed to garner a 7.5 rating/12 share to American Idol's 5.6/9.
