On last night's American Idol audition show in Los Angeles, viewers were introduced to a pair of rumored finalists:

  1. Andrew Garcia
  2. Chris Golightly

We've previewed both those contestants, as readers can click on the links above to read more about each.

Up now in our season nine preview: Katie Stevens. The 17-year old auditioned in Boston with a rendition of "At Last" by Etta James. She received anonymous approval for Hollywood.

It will be hard not to root for Stevens in the upcoming rounds.

She speaks fluent Portuguese and is especially close to her grandmother, an Alzheimer's disease patient. As you can see above, this high school student from  Middlebury, Connecticut also plays guitar.
