Katie Stevens is an American singer and actress best known for placing eighth on the ninth season of the reality competition television series American Idol, in 2009.
She is also known for her starring role as Karma Ashcroft, an optimistic high school sophomore who would go to any length to achieve popularity and has a secret affair with Liam Booker, even though she is in a (fake) lesbian relationship with her best friend Amy, in the romantic comedy television series Faking It.
Stevens began performing and singing at age 3, participating in Broadway intensive camps, local theatre, and eventually landing on the American Idol stage. In August 2009, she auditioned for the ninth season of American Idol in Boston, Massachusetts and sang "At Last," where all four judges (including guest judge Victoria Beckham) advanced her to Hollywood.
Stevens currently resides in Los Angeles, California.
