American Idol’s Haley Reinhart Was ‘Rolling In The Deep’ Last Night
Adele is one hot commodity these days: EVERYONE wants to cover her songs – and cover they do! From Gwyneth Paltrow’s rendition of “Turning Tables” on this week’s Glee episode to Glee star Amber Riley, 10-year-old phenom Connie Talbot and Jamie Woon all covering the uber-popular “Someone Like You,” there’s no doubt that the British songstress’ tunes are THE songs to sing!
American Idol contestant Haley Reinhart is the latest to jump on the ‘let’s-cover-Adele’ bandwagon, performing her version of the hit “Rolling In The Deep” on last night’s Idol ep. How did she fare? The Idol judges had nothing but praise for Haley.
Randy Jackson said. “I think Adele is an amazing artist and an amazing singer and I think you have that amazing thing in you as a singer as well that she has. So I’m really happy that you chose that. There were a couple times when you hit the falsetto in the chorus and it went a little sharp. But other than that, I thought it was a great performance. Well done.”
“I thought it was a great performance as well,” Steven Tyler added. “It was a little slow at the start and you brought it up in the middle and did what you do the best. There is a reason it’s the number one album in America right now because they like that feeling and you’ve got that in your voice. You did it in the middle and I thought it was beautiful.”
Jennifer Lopez said, “It takes a lot of guts to take on a record that everybody knows so well right now and you have to sing it just as good, if not better, than the singer. There were moments you did where you actually brought Haley to it and you forgot about the Adele, who is very hard to forget who we all love so much, but you you did. You brought a little bit of Haley to it in certain moments and that’s where I thought you really shined.”
Did she do the song justice? You be the judge!
