Katelyn is an amazing singer and I think that showed when she performed this song. But trust me that is her natural voice; SHE CAN SING. And to correct anyone that thinks she is fake, she is one of the nicest people and she may dress a little crazy at times but I think it's sexy. Check out the music that she has made on myspace, she is a true artist. And I'm gonna put her in my top three contestants.

I wasn't really feeling her prior to this performance, but she surprised me the most. I really like the tone of her voice. Curious to hear more from her.

i thought she was the best of the night FOR SURE! the look actually matched the song that's why she went for it i think. it wouldn't have matched if she went for the normal california girl look... and that voice! alluring and unique without sounding pitching at all. great job!

her and didi are my favs.

She's weird looking. The hair is a mess. I felt what Ellen did in that it seemed a bit forced at times. I wasn't wowed but she wasn't worst of the night either.

No offense intended, but you have Kara's quote (about the makeover not helping) attributed to Simon. Just had to point that out. Keep up the great work Rickey .... the wife and I are long-time fans!

Surprised how I agree with everyone else here. I didn't like what they showed of her before, and was ready to hate it, but was surprised.

She also kinda looks like Rebecca Romijn.

She's cool and I think she has potential to be in the top 6 girls, but she needs a better song next week to showcase her amazing vocal ability. "Oh Darling" was a song choice that wasn't really current and I've never actually heard of it before. No real hook there for the rest of the audiences. Can't wait to see her next week and I hope she's not in danger of getting voted off.

I was ready to not like her either, but that was DEFINITELY the best so far. She was REALLY good vocally, and I liked the way she delivered the song. She has my vote so far!

Kara's just jealous that there's someone prettier than her on the show! Katelyn reminds me of a saloon girl singing in an old western. She should get the votes of the two straight guys who watch this show.

Yeek, she looks like a clown in the pic but she was one of the better singers tonight.

Way better than most of the rest of the field tonight, despite the weird look.

BTW, that's one heck of an unattractive picture of her above for a very pretty girl.

She was good. I agree with Kara though about her look. It felt fake, but her vocals were not terrible.

i'm glad someone else said it. she reminds me a bit of kelly clarkson too. i love her, and i guess the outfit, which in all fairness, was ridiculous, distracted from the talent. but her voice is freaking amazing. my favorite vocallist this season by far.

Pie

by "matched the song", i meant it matched the groovy, jazzy, edgy vibe that she was goin for :)
