The singer is no stranger to reality TV. She previously was on Season 5 of 90 Day Fiancé, which followed her relationship with David Vázquez Zermeño before their wedding.

At the time, the 18-year-old was from Claremont, NH and it seemed like she never met the 27-year-old man she was engaged to who was from Granada, Spain. Fans later believed that wasn’t true when a photo of Vázquez Zermeño being in Boston in 2016 surfaced online. There also were allegedly screenshots of the two talking to each other online when Cormier would have been 15-years-old.

Cormier was also open about her pursuit of a music career while on the show. Now she’s on American Idol and her audition just aired.

Cormier performed “Wicked Games” by Chris Isaak for her audition


Cormier went with the rock song, “Wicked Games” to show off her voice. Before that, the judges actually commented on her looks.

“Fresh face!” said Bryan before thinking of an actress Cormier looked like. Perry chimed in with “Anne Hathaway” but Bryan was actually thinking of Rachel McAdams.

They also noticed she was wearing a wedding ring and congratulated her on being married for a year. So what did they think of her voice?

Katy Perry said Cormier’s voice is “Literally one of my favorite voices I’ve ever heard in my life”

Perry was the first one to react to the performance by saying “Literally one of my favorite voices I’ve ever heard in my life.” Bryan also said, “I think when you have a really amazing band behind you it’s going to be something crazy!”

Richie had kind words as well. “You have a sound. You have a sound that’s yours. I love the air. I don’t know what you’re doing or whatever it is…” The other judges agreed. Richie was the first to say yes to Cormier moving through the competition.

Perry also gave her the advice to pick the right songs

Sometimes how far you make it on reality competition shows is less about talent. It could be about getting votes from viewers, or it could be about making the right choices.

After Perry praised Cormier’s voice she did leave her with an important piece of advice. “Evelyn, pick the right songs because you’re my favorite voice,” the pop singer said.

In the end, Perry and Bryan also said yes to her moving forward. So Cormier will be going to Hollywood, but she still has a lot of work ahead of her.
