I hope Katie goes last or second to last next week.

Also if its Elvis I think she will do well. There are some Elvis songs I can picture her singing.

In fact I think Katie has one of the best voices left if not the best to tackle Elvis. She has a smokey voice.

BTW if the theme is Elvis remember it was Elvis the week Daughtry got bounced.

A shocker coming up next week?

I don't think it would be a shocker. A shocker would be Crystal, Casey, Siobhan, or Lee going. I would love for Casey and Big Mike to go next week, but it will most likely be Andrew, Tim, or Aaron.

Just found a great article regarding Katie:

Billy Bileca, The Man Who Coaxed Katie Stevens Onstage Before 'Idol'
Spilling the Beans With....

Blues musician Billy Bileca of Oxford is humble when he talks about being the guy who got "American Idol" contestant Katie Stevens onto the stage at 121 Restaurant in his hometown before she successfully tried out for the reality show.

Watch video of Katie Stevens singing with Billy Bileca

Bileca, a veteran performer who also teaches music, worked with the Middlebury teenager for months after she auditioned, knowing she would need more performance experience and a more diverse repertoire if she was going to hold her own. The married father of one is in close touch with Stevens as she continues her climb on the show. Over lunch, he recently talked about Stevens, her talents and his love of music while "spilling the beans" with Java.

Q: What can you tell me about Billy Bileca?

A: I am 42. I am originally from Stratford, went to school in Van Nuys, Calif., to study music with Joel DiBartolo from "The Tonight Show" band. I knew since high school that I wanted to be a musician. I mainly play guitar and bass but will try anything with strings. I'm very well versed in blues. I've played with a lot of bands, toured with Debbie Davies, recorded with Jeff Pitchell and Eran Troy Danner, tour along the East Coast and play at a lot of places in Connecticut, including Black-eyed Sally's in Hartford. I make my living teaching at the Creative Music Center and performing. I don't know who discovered me. I think I'm still waiting. Instrumentally, I haven't arrived yet at where I want to be.

Q: What did you think the first time you heard Katie Stevens sing?

A: She had it. I was playing at 121 in the spring of 2009, and a waiter mentioned that Katie, who was working there, sang. I told her to come up and sing any time with me, and she was cool. She didn't need to be nudged. The first time she sang, I suggested "At Last." As soon as she sang the first two words, I knew she had it.

Q: When did you start seriously working with her?

A: She told me right away that she was trying out for "Idol." Her experience up until I met her had been school theater and pageant stuff. We would meet at the restaurant and do a couple of songs before the dinner crowd arrived. For "Idol," we came up with a plan to develop about 90 minutes of music, different kinds, blues, jazz, pop, Motown, so she would have the range that they do on the show. I knew from playing around myself that she would need to have some popular music. I also had her listen to singers like Gladys Knight, Aretha Franklin. She was hip to that. ... We would rehearse at her parents' house. As far as young singers, she is the most talented one I have ever met.

Q: What about all the judges' differing opinions on exactly what genre she should choose?

A: Controversy makes for good TV. She does have a smoky R&B kind of voice, but modern country music also has elements of R&B. And she does sing country really well. She sang it here, things from Rascal Flatts and others. ... She has performed a few of the songs, including "At Last" and "Chain of Fools," that she did here.

Q: Do you get antsy watching her on the show and not being able to be there?

A: I am excited for her. And I'm hoping that working with her in front of an audience of 120 people carried over to 20 million watching her on TV. ... She handles herself just great. And we text each other.

Q: Do you have would-be musicians banging down your door asking you to discover them?

A: I don't feel like I discovered Katie. She would have done it without me. I think I definitely helped her in getting her to sing out in front of people. ... I try not to be too opinionated. I just support her and help her try to enhance what she might be doing each week.

Q: What do you think about talent reality shows like "American Idol"?

A: You have to have talent. But it's about popularity, too. You have to take it for what it is.

Q: Do you ever pinch yourself and say, "Wow, never expected this to happen?"

A: The first time she sang and told me she wanted to try out for the show, I said to someone, "That is potentially your next 'American Idol.'" I knew she would get to the Top 10. ... She is such a special kid, and I'd like to see her succeed. One of out every 40 students has something extra. She is one of them, and that's the thrill.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did. yes.gif

From L.A. Times:

If you thought Katie Stevens looked shocked when Ryan Seacrest informed the top 9 that Adam Lambert would be their next mentor, imagine her reaction to finding out they’re going to Vegas for Elvis Week!

At least that’s what the latest rumors say. According to The Wrap, Adam and the season 9 crew may convene at the Aria Hotel on the Las Vegas strip, which happens to house Cirque du Soleil’s new “Viva Elvis” show. (It should be noted that CKX, 19 Entertainment’s parent company, has controlling interest in Elvis Presley Enterprises and owns the rights to the King’s name, image and likeness.)
