Katie Stevens vs. Katelyn Epperly: Semifinalist Showdown!

by at . Comments

How far can young and cute carry Katie Stevens and Katelyn Epperly this season on American Idol?

It's a question worth asking because these two semifinalists don't have the strongest voices on the show.

But Stevents, at least, has the most moving personal story of any contestant: she's extremely close to her grandmother, who suffers from Alzheimer's disease. The Boston native says she'd love nothing more than to achieve her dreams while her grandmother is still relatively cognizant.

Epperly, meanwhile, is a 19-year old from Iowa. She plays the piano and has served as the vocalist for Katelyn & the Bruises, a folk rock band.

first of all, Katie's not a Boston native, she's from Connecticut--the same town that I'm from and I think it'd be safe to say that she DOES have one of the best voices on American Idol...just sayin.

Is it me or does Katelyn look like Kelly Clarkson in the face?

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
