Federal Way's 'Idol' comes up short in regional finals

Yalonda McKee of Tacoma won last Saturday’s Battle of the Idol musical talent competition, in which Autumn Sturzen of Federal Way was a contestant.

The competition, patterned after the popular “American Idol” television show, was staged at the Western Washington Fair in Puyallup.

Eleven contestants vied for the $1,000 prize that went to McKee. They reached the regional finals after winning “Idol” contests in their respective cities.

Jessica Oliver of North Bend was runnerup last Saturday.
