Catie Turner 21st Century Machine
The first audition of ABC’s Idol, Turner had me at “I know I’m a little awkward.” (Self-awareness is important in this business, people!) Unfortunately, things got a little… sad from there. “Sometimes, I can make people tense just by being around them,” she continued. “I’m not popular — look at me!”
That’s when Turner, who at 17 has never known a world in which American Idol didn’t exist, performed “21st Century Machine,” a brilliant original song about how the media affected her as a girl growing up in America. Bryan applauded her “wisdom,” Richie gushed over her voice and Perry silently pondered how she could get away with stealing the song and passing it off as her own.

Cindi Marie Reardon She is ok but in my opinion she isn't spectacular and amazing
Shes just average. I wouldn't not buy her CD or pay to see her in concert. I give her credit but she needs to deflate her balloon a tad and come down a notches. Act more mature
Gina Scotti-Bulger Why does everyone feel so entitled to pick her apart? Geeeesh she has talent – who cares about what she’s wearing, or that she gives big bear hugs?? She’s truly appreciative.
David Spratt That's my niece! She is amazing and has the biggest heart ever! so proud. keep watching!!! and lets make her dream come true
Catie Turner 21st Century Machine I love seeing the "socially awkward" go for it all in spite of the fear they feel everytime they face the public! The face turns red, the body moves with awkward jerks and jitters and forward …MARCH right through it all. I love it!
Cassandra Spears I am so glad that Luke told her to disregard all the negativity on social media. That shows you really can’t judge a book by it’s cover. I thought she was just playing but she did a good job to me.
She has lots of energy and I want to see what more she has.love Catie Turner 21st Century Machine
Margaret Scoville Man he was so right to tell her not to go on here and other sites, some of you are just hateful people. She has a very beautiful voice, might not be what you like, but some enjoyed it. That song was awesome. If she doesn't become a singer, she just might become a song writer.
Michelle Staab Fahrney She was adorable and smart. Her song was amazing. I am anxious to hear more of her voice tho. I don't feel like we have seen everything she can do. Maybe that's why they passed her love Catie Turner 21st Century Machine
Ray Real Amazing Real Talent with Original Lyrics and great Guitar playing! I love this song already, would love to hear the whole thing and pay for it on itunes or amazon lols! Don't listen to these hack critics Catie, they cant play or sing a lick
Jeremy Pape I admit I wasn’t sure when I first saw her, and I don’t think the judges were either. But this girl can flat out sing, and should be in the finals. I can’t see how people are hating on her after the performance she gave.
Buttafly Leola Serrano Spunky personality, gift of words, and she has an amazing voice! Catie with a C we are cheering for you!! Keep that contagious smile going!!
