Haley Reinhart

A Haley Reinhart Album?!?!

Oh, how dearly I remember Haley Reinhart, my second favorite American Idol contestant. She sang like a sassy angel, she won beautiful Casey Abrams‘ heart, and now she’s going on to land a record deal with Interscope. Positively fabulous!

How much faith do you have in Haley’s upcoming album? Because, you know, I WOULD have had a lot of faith, but I did hear that little snippet of Pia Toscano‘s original stuff, also from Interscope, by the way, and it shook my faith a little. That’s wrong of me, isn’t it? I shouldn’t doubt awesome Haley based on my recent experience with the always boring Pia. That’s not fair to anyone, and I apologize.

Well, I’ve done a lot of personal growth in this little story. You might not have taken the same path as me. You might be one of those people who thought that Haley sucked, and to you I say “look what you did to America.” Either way, I’d love to talk about this little chain of events. Thoughts? Comments? Personal attacks? Let’s get to chatting, friends.

Casey and Haley from Idol Are Doing An Album Together!

I don’t even need to tell you how happy this makes me, do I? My two favorite American Idol contestants doing an album together, are you kidding me?  I could listen to Casey Abrams and Haley Reinhart make beautiful music all the livelong day, but a whole album of these two together recording whatever moves their hearts is going to be out of this world for me.

According to one of Casey’s bros, these crazy kids want to work together because they have the same taste in music, they’ll be together on the Idol tour all summer so they’ll have tons of time to work on an album, and because every starry-eyed girl like me will be all over it.  You’ve got to hand it to them, this is a super smart move, right?  I mean, I’m not the only one who is absolutely losing her shit over this, am I?

American Idol Recap, Or “How I Lost Faith in America”

Spoiler alert: the majority of American Idol voters have no idea what good music sounds like.

In case you couldn’t tell by my anger and disappointment, last night Haley Reinhart got voted off the show.  You know what that means?  It means that the finale is going to feature Lauren and Scotty.  And that is, pardon my eloquence, dumb as a box of rocks.

It’s not that I think Lauren and Scotty are bad people, it’s just … really?  Was the rest of the country watching the same show that I was watching?  I sincerely don’t get it.  But as a friend said to console me, it’s ok, Haley’s definitely getting a record deal, she’s going to be just fine.  And as another friend said to console me when Casey Abrams went home, it’s better that the good ones don’t win the competition – just look at how successful Adam Lambert is compared to whoever it was who beat him.

I still don’t get how more people like Scotty “Baby, Lock Them Doors” McCreery more than Haley, but it’ll be ok, I’ll get over it eventually.  But in the meantime, can you explain yourself, America?
