Hayley Reinhart of 'American Idol' with Regis Philbin on 'Live With Regis and Kelly'Haley Reinhart got to know Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler through several weeks of his support and critiques on 'American Idol.' Today on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated), Reinhart talked about the experience and got to reprise one of the songs she sang in competition.

Regis Philbin asked if Tyler scared Reinhart a little bit, trying to imitate Tyler's wide-mouthed grin. Reinhart said the judges could be critical at times, but they were just trying to push her to do better things. Tyler, in particular, was a steady supporter throughout Reinhart's time on the show. "I love the guy," said Reinhart. "He's a good guy, and I mean, we really got to see the soft, genuine side of him."

Reinhart also performed her bluesy version of "House of the Rising Sun," a traditional tune that has been recorded by Woody Guthrie, Dave Van Ronk, Bob Dylan, The Animals, and Dolly Parton.

Haley Reinhart's Original Song Cut From 'American Idol' Finale for Bono

Haley ReinhartWhen Bono comes a-knockin', ratings come a-flockin', and not even an original song from 'Idol' fan favorite Haley Reinhart is safe.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Haley Reinhart was supposed to debut an original song during the 'American Idol' season 10 finale, but those plans were squashed to make room for Bono and the cast of 'Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.'

"That was going to happen," Reinhart said when asked about performing an original song. "And then Bono came in and it was taken away."

'American Idol' Reveals Its Top 2: Who Went Home? (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted May 20th 2011 12:08AM
Top Three, 'American Idol'It's been a long season, and in the end it's come down to two teenage country singers and one bluesy girl with a rocker heart on 'American Idol' (Thu., 8PM ET on FOX). All three of them got to visit their hometowns and sing their hearts out on three songs last night.

FOX was so excited about the record number of votes they recorded for this stage of the competition that they put out a press release touting it Thursday morning, which stole a little thunder from Ryan Seacrest's announcement that 'Idol' pulled in 95 million votes.

Of course, with the addition of online voting this season, shouldn't they be expected to reach new records each week in the voting? But it's not how many votes they racked up that mattered. It's who got the most votes. Which two move on to next week's finalists?

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

Haley Reinhart Performs With Her Father, Falls on 'American Idol' (VIDEO)

Haley Reinhart, 'American Idol'Haley Reinhart certainly had a memorable opening number for this semi-final performance episode of 'American Idol' (Wed., 8PM ET on FOX). She became the first contestant to perform during the show with a family member on-stage when her father joined her on Led Zeppelin's 'What Is and What Should Never Be.'

He proved a consummate guitarist and a professional all around. Poor Haley, either flummoxed by her father's presence, or just unlucky in the moment, took a tumble at one point when trying to climb the stairs in front of the judges, but she recovered quickly and finished strong.

"Did you fall for me?" quipped Steven Tyler. But, more seriously, he added, "It's not about how many times you fall, it's how many times you get back up."

Baby, lock them damn doors already and turn the lights down low! It was time to get down to business tonight as the Top 3 tackled a trio of songs, including their own picks as well as selections from the judges and mega-producer Jimmy Iovine.

On the heels of an inspiring hometown visit, yet with two-thirds of the night out of their hands, how did Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina and Haley Reinhart handle the pressure?

'American Idol' Top Three Revealed: Who Was Eliminated? (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted May 13th 2011 12:31AM
Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson, 'American Idol'Top Four has been an odd time in 'American Idol' (Thu., 8PM ET on FOX) history. As Ryan Seacrest pointed out at the close of the performance episode, it was at this point in the competition that Chris Daughtry was eliminated back in Season 5.

Other fourth-place finishers include Tamyra Gray, Josh Gracin, LaToya London, Jason Castro and Allison Iraheta, so it doesn't mean the end of the road. Sure, only Daughtry came out of it with a monster career so far, but many of these people have been able to go on and make music their career in some way.

Girls were the first five eliminated, but since then Lauren and Haley have outlasted four guys in a row. Could they continue their streak and send Scotty or James home, or would the boys make a comeback. It's such a tight field this season, it was difficult to predict what might happen.

Did Haley Reinhart Come Back and Make Top Three on 'American Idol' (VIDEO)

James Durbin, Scotty McCreery & Haley Reinhart, 'American Idol'Haley Reinhart had a rough night Wednesday night with the judges, and Randy Jackson in particular, on 'American Idol' (Thu., 8PM ET on FOX). On the results show, you could see even more clearly how unrattled he'd left her after saying she was "screaming" Michael Jackson's 'Earth Song.'

She came out and redeemed herself in the judges' eyes with Ben E. King's 'I (Who Have Nothing),' but did their remarks hurt her chances with America?

Coming into this week, Reinhart had faced the Bottom Three on four separate occasions. Of the other finalists, only Lauren has been in the Bottom, and that was just last week.

Haley Reinhart Stands Up for Herself Against Randy Jackson's Criticism on 'Idol' (VIDEO)

Haley Reinhart, 'American Idol'With the theme around songs that inspire the Top 4, Haley Reinhart chose to sing Michael Jackson's 'Earth Song' for her first 'American Idol' (Wed., 8PM ET on FOX) performance this week. It's not one of his more well-known songs stateside, but it meant something to her and she poured her emotion into the song.

Jennifer Lopez criticized her choice of song, saying it was a bad move this late in the game. Randy Jackson took the criticism a little further, saying the song was out of her range and she needed to put more into it vocally than she did.

'American Idol' Top Five Results: Which Contestant Was Eliminated? (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted May 6th 2011 12:40AM
Top Five Elimination, 'American Idol'It's down to the wire now on 'American Idol' (Thu., 8PM ET on FOX). With only five contestants left, each of them had two solo performances last night. For most of them, this proved to be a blessing as they were able to nail at least one of their songs.

Haley Reinhart had a shaky start, according to the judges, with an unreleased Lady Gaga song. But she closed the show with an amazing take on 'The House of the Rising Sun.' Scotty opened strong with 'Gone,' but wasn't as strong on his second number.

James lost himself in the emotions a bit in his second song, which could have hurt or helped him with viewers. Lauren held back a bit on 'Unchained Melody,' while Jacob floundered a lot on 'No Air.' With so many hits and misses, it was anyone's week to lose.

Haley Reinhart Blows the Roof Off 'The House of the Rising Sun' on 'American Idol' (VIDEO)

Haley Reinhart, 'American Idol'When her performance began, it was just Haley Reinhart, a stool and her voice. 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: Reinhart stole the show on 'American Idol' (Wed., 8PM ET on FOX).

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!"

Who Was Voted Off 'American Idol'? (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Apr 29th 2011 5:00AM
Casey and Scotty on 'American Idol'And then there were five. Thursday night's 'American Idol' (Thu., 8PM ET on Fox) was an elimination night, and it came down to Casey Abrams and Scott McCreery in the bottom two. McCreery had chosen to sing 'You've Got a Friend' by James Taylor, and Abrams a more obscure tune, 'Hi-De-Ho' by Blood, Sweat, & Tears, in the elimination round.

Song choice could have made the difference, as Abrams, ever the fuzzy individualist, was sent packing. But he went out in style, singing 'I Put a Spell on You,' a song originally written and performed by the highly theatrical Screamin' Jay Hawkins.

Abrams hugged the judges, played to the audience, and directed some of the song to Haley Reinhart, which should only serve to feed the rumors that the two are romantically linked. Hopefully Abrams will now find a record deal that will allow him to grow in his left-of-the-mainstream tastes and impressive musical talent.

Haley Reinhart Gives a 'Beautiful' Performance on 'American Idol' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 28th 2011 12:16AM
Haley Reinhart, 'American Idol'It was a match made in heaven this week on 'American Idol' (Wed., 8PM ET on FOX) with the songs of Carole King. Haley Reinhart's vocal stylings are perfectly suited for the music of King, and she proved it twice this week.

First, she and Casey Abrams teased us about their possible-relationship in a heartfelt, bluesy duet. Then later, Reinhart proved she was 'Beautiful' in her own right. She showcased her growing confidence with a great performance, but the panel was mixed.

"I heard God in your voice," Steven Tyler said. "You nailed it just now."

But Randy Jackson wasn't as impressed. "I didn't love the beginning," he said, which led to a disagreement with Lopez, who loved her interpretation of the lyrics. Though it was given to Haley by Jimmy Iovine and Babyface, but she totally owned it.

'American Idol' Top 7 Results: Who Was Eliminated? (VIDEO)

'American Idol' resultsLast week, Paul McDonald broke the streak of five consecutive girls sent home on 'American Idol' (Thu., 8PM ET on FOX). With only two remaining in the Top Seven, Jennifer Lopez made no bones about not wanting to see a girl go home this week.

When the show brought out the eliminated contestants last week for an opening performance, the gender bias of the season was painfully obvious, as poor McDonald tried to keep up with the five girls on a girl-power song.


When Ryan Seacrest started whittling down the contestants, the favorites stayed out of the line of fire. Of the seven remaining contestants, only three of them have been in the Bottom Three before. And they made up the Bottom Three this week.
