    Not sure if it was nerves or whatever, her rendition of "Who wants to live forever". Truly horrific. She's totally off key the whole time. But Hey, good luck with her marriage to Mr Foster. I've heard the fourth wife usually gets no money.

    "As a girl she would vocalize all the time so I started training for her" oh please that mom is living vicariously through her... Yes Katharine is beautiful and has talent but her mom clearly groomed her into the business.

    I think all this "blonditis" all over the world kind'a ridiculous but Idk why a pretty girl like her wants to look a 40ish (at 00:43) with that blonde hair!

    Ha. I auditioned for Simon, Paula & Randy right after her (that's me in the background with the dreads and the blue shirt when she leaves the room and hugs her mom). I knew I couldn't follow that. She's a pro.

    I can't believe that she said she thought that was the right song for her. I understand maybe from a vocal standpoint but that song carries so much meaning and so much history and for her to sing it especially the way she singing at even though she thinks he sounds good, it just doesn't come across right.

    When I first saw her, it was on that show "Smash". She was the lead actress/singer of the show (was a few years ago it was on). She was captivating. I honestly didn't recognize her in this at first because her physical appearance has changed so much from AI to Smash and probably to whatever she's doing now. She is very talented and I wish her the best.

    I bet no one can say who “beat” her that season, and took first place to her... ahem... “runner up” position.
    She’s bounced back just fine. 😉🤟🏼
