Video: Haley Reinhart Blows the Roof Off on 'American Idol'
By AOL TV Editors Posted May 5th 2011 01:05AM
Sheryl Crow suggested she begin her take on 'The House of the Rising Sun' a cappella and it turned out to be a bold and powerful suggestion as Reinhart stole the show on 'American Idol'.
It can be advantageous to perform last on a show that opens the lines to public voting as soon as you finish, and Reinhart took total advantage of that. She may have gotten mixed reviews for her first performance of the night, but everyone was blown away by her show closer.
Randy Jackson put it quite succinctly. "The award tonight for the best performance of the night goes to Haley!"
We couldn't agree more. It's been exciting watching the contestants grow in confidence each week, and Reinhart has truly blossomed into a seasoned and passionate performer. She absolutely owned her moment on the stage. Even though she's a tiny little thing, she filled that stage this week with her voice.
