That’s what getting a record contract can do though – it can prove how wrong everyone was. Yes, Season 10 Top 2 Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina are doing just fine, it’s just that Reinhart has crafted one of the smartest and single-handedly original post-AMERICAN IDOL albums yet.
Now and then, TV talent shows uncover a little gem. In this case, 2011′s American Idol found Haley Reinhart. The Illinois gal came third in the tenth season of the show and released her debut album last month. Releasing the record a year on from Idol has clearly paid off as she conjures up a bloody good slice of quality pop!
Haley’s going to be playing softball (with David Cook). Airing on ESPN July 9. Probably this event: MLB Hall of Famers and Former All-Stars to Participate in 2012 Taco Bell All-Star Legends & Celebrity Softball Game on July 8th, Kansas City. TIckets available here from $50 to $105.

A fellow “Idol” alum, Haley Reinhart, even appears on Abrams’ album. The pair cover the classic “Hit the Road Jack,” made famous by Ray Charles.
“She’s a very close friend and I can talk to her about anything which I think translates onto tape. When we’re screwing around and having fun on jazzy vocals, you never know what’s going to come out of our mouths,” Abrams said.
The duo also had a hit with their recording of “Baby It’s Cold Outside” during the holidays.
“If a year passes and I haven’t recorded a song with Haley Reinhart then my job isn’t done,” Abrams said. “Not a year—let’s say a good two years.”

Haley Reinhart Live At The Intersection [VIDEOS] [95.7, videos posted above]
Yesterday’s free Haley Reinhart show was awesome! And thank you so much to those of you who braved the sweltering heat to come out for it! We decided to take some video of it for those of you who couldn’t be there (and for those of you who could, but want to relive it). Haley performed a variety of songs during yesterday’s mini-concert. Of course, she did her song “Free” off of her new album, and a few others that wowed the crowd. But, she also dedicated a very special song “House Of The Rising Sun” to Channel 95-7′s very own Joe Knight!
You have another “Idol” buddy on here, Haley Reinhart. This is the second song you’re recorded together after “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” You two have great music chemistry, are you two going to make an album together? I wouldn’t be opposed to it. I think the reason it works so well is because she’s a cool person and I can talk to her honestly. We can shoot the shit. Just chilling. I think, to be honest, as long as there’s such good vibes between the friendship, it translates really well onto disc. We never know what’s going to come out of our voices.

‘Listen Up!’ (in addition to being a category of blog posts that I write from time to time) is immediately surprising. You’d think a girl like Haley coming out of a place like American Idol would grab for something easy and possibly successful on radio – you know, Katy Perry/Rihanna grade electro/dance-pop. Instead, she takes another route, making an album that is poppy and soulful. The closest album I’ve heard like this in the past several years was Amy Winehouse’s ‘Back To Black’ (and that’s a fucking compliment if I’ve ever heard one). ‘Listen Up!’ is bluesy, her voice going from powerful to raspy on a whim and the call of the tune.Reinhart comes out of nowhere with this sound (for me at least, I don’t watch American Idol, so I have no idea what she sang on the show) but does it very well. She isn’t the best singer in the world (maybe why she didn’t win), but it doesn’t matter. At no point does anything sound too stressed. You can hear that the girl is trying and giving it her all, but not stepping outside of what works for her. The sound doesn’t fit her image, but the girl fills out a track better than you’d expect.
