William's Places: If Not An 'American Idol, definitely Middlebury Ct's Idol

If Not An 'American Idol, definitely Middlebury Ct's Idol

Let's cheer for our own local celebrity! Go, Katie!!!

American Idol, the show that takes a talented unknown and vaults them to the top of the music world on the basis of their talents. Previous winners such as Carrie Underwood and Kelly Clarkson have enough talent that they probably would have become stars eventually, but winning the show certainly shortened that trip.

This season is no different with the show now doing the elimination of wanna-bees from hundreds of thousands down to the final 24. In this State, at least, the pride of Middlebury Ct and possibly the region, Katie Stevens is hoping to be the next 'Chosen One'.


Middlebury Ct went all out yesterday to root for Katie, the 17 year old local high school senior. The firehouse set up their assembly room as an impromptu theater and opened the doors with TV cameras from local stations recording the cheers and well wishers of her friends and neighbors as she sang and then got judged by the panel.

Nobody won the contest last night and although she didn't get the judges standing and applauding, she definitely should have done enough to get on to the next round.

As she sang her song, my personal emotions were running wild. Although Katie is a stranger to me, her family is not. While watching her sing to her grandmother Rita on a previous show, I recall many an evening when both of her grand parents would be sitting in our home visiting with my parents.

Remembering her deceased grand father, Jose Francisco's zest for life I know all too well how proud he would be of his special Katie.

Middlebury, Ct will root like crazy this upcoming Thursday for Katie Stevens to continue her quest to become the next American Idol. For many of us who are familiar with her and her family that job has already been done.

Pretty cool to have a local heading to Idol. I always cheer on the Dallas folks.

William, I got home to late from an appointment to see the show today, but my wife tells me that she advanced into the final 20.  That is a big accomplishment already.
