On the heels of their respective victories, “The Voice” winner Maelyn Jarmon and “American Idol” winner Laine Hardy soar to the upper reaches of the Billboard Emerging Artists Chart.

Jarmon rises to #1 on this week’s listing, while Hardy makes his debut at #3.

Lewis Capaldi (#3), City Girls (#4) and Lauv (#5) form the balance of this week’s chart.

The Emerging Artists chart ranks the Top 50 artists who have yet to score a major hit on a key Billboard Album or Song chart.

While they still meet that criteria, Jarmon and Hardy do appear prominently on this week’s Billboard Digital Song Sales Chart.

Jarmon is at #6 with “Hallelujah,” #24 with “Wait For You,” #33 with “Unforgettable (with John Legend)” and #50 with “Stay.”

Hardy takes #8 with “Flame.”
