Adem Dalipi from Belvidere is a contestant on this year's American Idol and we got a chance to chat with him about meeting Katy Perry during the auditions.

Adem is a talented 16 year old from the Stateline who is a potential winner on this season's American Idol.

While Adem can't tell us how far he's gotten in the competition, he did tell us about Katy Perry's eyeliner and how it feels to be both a regular high school student while he's also becoming a music superstar (by words not his).

I also got a chance to interview him this weekend on Good Day Stateline where he performed his new single, 'Be With You Now.'
