Remember Katelyn Epperly? She was shockingly eliminated from the American Idol season 9 semi-final round. Her buzzy performances of “Oh Darling” and “The Scientist” seemed to guarantee her a spot in the finales. But, it wasn’t meant to be, as she was eliminated at the Top 16 along with Alex Lambert, Lily Scott and Todrick Hall. It was the Thursday Night Massacre, if you will.
Fast forward three years later, and Katelyn has released the official video for her self-penned, original song, “Julianne.” The bluesy tune tells the story of an unfortunate young woman who makes some bad decisions. Katelyn performs and acts in the sexy new production. Check it out below.
