Katrina Darrell

By Denise Martin, Times Staff Writer 'American Idol' bikini girl Katrina Darrell is convinced Simon Cowell will call After being ousted in the first round of group auditions during Hollywood Week, Darrell claimed that she's still got a big fan in the British judge. "Hopefully Simon [Cowell] will sign me. He has a management company, and that would be really cool to have him pick me up and be the next Leona Lewis or something," she said. When pressed if she really thought that it was a possibility, Darrell said she had no doubt. "When I watched the episode where I was eliminated, his comment was ‘She’s going to go far.’ And he said I had a beautiful voice, and he said, ‘That’s what I love about her.’ And just comments like that, I think there’s something behind them." Someone needs to get her hands on a copy of "He's Just Not That Into You."
