American Idol Season 9 Champ-Katelyn Epperly

Yep, I am making our prediction now.  Katelyn Epperly will win American Idol Season 9.  We are two weeks into American Idol Season 9 live shows and I have seen enough to know that she will win.  One21music covers Christian music artists on American Idol Season 9.  We cannot find anything in Katelyn’s background that suggests she is a believer but we have seen enough to see that she has everything it takes to American Idol Season 9.  Here is why:

  1. Katelyn Epperly has delivered two great performances.  For some reason the judges have not recognized the artistry she has brought to “Oh, Darling” and “The Scientist”.  First of all, she has not hit a single sour note.  Her vocal dynamics and phrasing have been inspired. Wednesday night, Katelyn Epperly delivered a show stopping performance of ColdPlay’s “The Scientist”.  I don’t know if the song has some hidden meeting for her but her facial expressions and body language were heart breaking.  And they way she interacted with the camera, was inspired.  If you don’t believe me watch it again:

  2. Katelyn Epperly has made two great song choices.  She has already demonstrated her skills as a musician by playing both the guitar and piano so far this season.  She is the creative force behind two indie/experimental bands.  She is studying to be a sound engineer.  All this causes me to expect a series of inspired arrangements in the vein of Kris Allen and David Cook.  I have already started assembling my Katleyn Epperly American Idol Season 9 CD, I suggest you do the same.
  3. She has the look.  Tall, blonde, fresh faced with a great smile, young men all over America have fallen in love Katelyn Epperlywith Katelyn Epperly.  She is young and unaffected enough connect with the teenage girls and mothers that make up the largest American Idol voting block.  We have already seen enough variation in her look that the sarcastic hipsters may not write her off as “packaged”.  She looks for all the world to me like an indie rock/folk Carrie Underwood.

With all respect for Crystal Bowersox, Michael Lynche and Andrew Garcia, we are ready to project Katelyn Epperly as the winner of American Idol Season 9.
