Idol premieres March 11 with Katy Perry, Lionel Ritchie and Luke Bryan as the judges who determine which singers make it to Hollywood and which don’t.
Here’s more about Catie Turner.
She hails from Langhorne, Pa. — think the Philly area — where she has attended Neshaminy High School.
Catie has quite a sense of humor. On Twitter, she writes: “I also will try to make you laugh a lot. There’s a low chance it’ll work.”
Check out the captions on her Instagram page and you’ll quickly discover there’s a very good chance she’ll at least make you smile.
On Twitter, she also recently wrote: “I only have one GIF and it’s Travis Scott thrashing a microphone stand while fire burns behind him, and I think that’s a good representation of who I am as an artist.” It’s impossible to tell whether or not she was using that sense of humor when she wrote the tweet.
This apparently isn’t her first attempt at a singing show. Before launching into a mashup of “Baby, One More Time” and “Oops, I Did It Again” on her Facebook page, she refers to herself as “two-time Voice reject Catie Turner.” She’s laughing when she says it.
More seriously, she released an album of six originals called “Teen Angst” in late 2015 that’s very good considering how young she must have been when the songs were written. You can check out some of those songs on Soundcloud. I’ve embedded “I Feel New” below.
