With Fox’s “Rake” tanking, the network is moving the “Idol” results show from 8 p.m. Thursday to 9 p.m. Thursday starting next week. (It will remain 8 p.m. this week.)  Generally, viewership is better at 9 p.m. so that’s good news for “Idol.”

“Hell’s Kitchen” will air at 8 p.m. Thursday instead while “Rake’ is bumped to Fridays to die a slow death.

“Idol” will have an hour-long results show the next three weeks but go to 30 minutes starting March 27.

“The Voice” continues to draw strong numbers: 15.7 million viewers Monday night with a 4.5 18-49 rating. That’s almost the same as its debut, with much better retention numbers than “Idol” had in January for its 13th season debut.

Here’s a sampling of what aired last night:

Sam Behymer does an impressive karaoke impression of Lorde with some really odd enunciation:

The Brothers Walker are kinda cute with their Zac Brown cover and Usher takes them:

And I love this girl! Clarissa Sema doing the Cranberries’ “Zombie.”  She’s a four-chair turner. She takes Shakira.

Melissa Jiminez sings a bit of “If I Ain’t Got You” in Spanish. She’s a good singer. She picks Usher over Shakira.

Sisaundra Lewis is very old school singing Aretha Franklin, A very impressive voice. She goes to Team Blake.
