Katie Stevens of MiddleburyCt will try again tonight at 8:00 PM to continue on American Idol. She was one of 10 women that survived the cut last week.
The judges were harsh on her last week and questioned her song selection as being too old for her age, and her dress as 'looking like her mother dressed her for the prom'. At the end of the voting, however, she had won enough people with their voice and personality to move on.
Many of the other contestants were likewise treated harshly, but understandably so when it's understood that they are trying to win a talent contest that rewards them with a recording contract and potentially sets their future on a fast path.
The fire station in Middlebury Ct will again be open to host another viewing party for Katie Stevens, with the doors opening at 7 PM
In Southbury Ct, at Pomperaug High School, where Katie is a senior, another viewing party will be hosted. School officials hope to rally support for Katie during the voting period, which opens for just a few hours after the show airs. Doors will open at 7:30 PM
Attendees to both venues are asked to bring their cell phones to vote.
