SALT LAKE CITY — Evelyn Cormier, who won the reality TV show “90 Day Fiance,” is now trying to win “American Idol.” And she may have a good shot.

Cormier’s audition for “American Idol” aired Sunday night. She successfully passed the first test and will perform in Hollywood in the next round of the show.

And Katy Perry gave her a pretty big compliment as well.

Cormier performed “Wicked Game” by Chris Isaak and received praise from all three judges — Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan — thereafter. All the judges said Cormier reminded them of actress Rachel McAdams.
