'American Idol': Haley Reinhart Shines on Adele's 'Rolling in the Deep' (VIDEO)

Haley Reinhart, 'American Idol'It's a huge gamble on 'American Idol' (Wed., 8PM ET on FOX) to tackle a contemporary hit. Add to that a singer as stylized as Adele and you have the potential for a huge disaster. How do you not compare the contestant to the original, and usually find them lacking?

Haley Reinhart took the risk with Adele's 'Rolling in the Deep,' but she needn't have worried. She not only did Adele proud, Reinhart brought enough of her own flare to it that it could have been a hit all over again, under her name.

"What I'm looking for now is not only who's going to win and who's going to take this," Randy Jackson said. "What direction are you going to go in as an artist? ... All of these fans and people that are voting for you, hopefully they continue with you after the show. And I think that you chose a perfect direction for you."


'American Idol' airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8PM ET on FOX.

Were you loving Haley's take on Adele?

Casey is the total package: YES, he can sing & perform. Every time he surprises the masses. He has never been 'cookie cutter'. James Durbin is also the Toral package. He is not another Adam Lambert although their voices are both awesome, James is a true rocker. Not sure even Adam knows if he hangs to the left or the right.
Scotty - well... he is only country and personally, I am getting bored with him. Haley..she's another total package and will go far in her new career. Jacob, time to go back to the Church choir. Jacob has mega talent in singing from the heart about the Lord. Nothing wrong with that, infact..IF he ever performs in a church, many would come and be 'saved'. Jacob just isn't American Idol material. Stephano, sexy cute..all the little girls will find him to be the next Poster Boy in their bedrooms. Almost forgot the Country girl - Lauren..she needs to grow a bit more with her confidence and not hold back so much. Randy & Jennifer nailed it last night with her. She needs to go and come back in 3 years and do it again. She just might win it then but not now.

Bottom three: Stephano, Scotty & Jacob
