Which Rapping American Idol Alum Do These Nails Belong To? [Chicago Racked, 8/5]
Fans of the show certainly remember former contestant Haley Reinhart. She wowed American Idol audiences with her raspy yet powerful voice, but she wowed us with her diva-in-training wardrobe and gorgeous head of hair. While she didn’t win her season, she shows no signs of slowing down–she released her first album “Listen Up!” in May and will be at this years Lollapalooza festival.
On the red carpet for the Teen Choice Awards this JulyThis girl’s hair–I can’t even. It looks good curly, it looks good straightened. She’d probably even look good with the Rachel (well, maybe not). Plus, her “Listen Up” necklace is pulling double duty here, giving her outfit just the right amount of shiny while sending subliminal messages about her album.…At the American Idol Season 11 Grand Finale this yearCheetah girl or American Idol finalist? When you break this outfit down to its individual components it shouldn’t work, but she’s young and vibrant enough to carry the look. Besides, I’m a sucker for a hot pink pump...Performing on Season 11 of American Idol last MarchThe flowing fabric and slit give this already vibrant dress the perfect amount of drama for the stage without becoming too Lady Gaga-weird. Her hair is, yet again, outstanding (she’s rocking the ombre look that’s been popular lately). She may not have come out on top, but she’s certainly a winner here.
Hot off its pop-up pool party in NYC last week, Miami represented at Lollapalooza in Chicago over the weekend, where some A-list celebs were seen taking advantage of the Greater Miami Convention and Visitor’s Bureau’s “It’s So Miami Oasis” at the Hard Rock Hotel Chicago….Also seen tapping into the free booze and swag: singers Ryan Cabrera and B.o.B., Friday Night Lightsactor Zach Gifford, Cougar Town actor Josh Hopkins, and American Idol runner up Haley Reinhart, seen kissing her dad goodbye after he helped her pack up the family van, a beat-up old conversion. “They kissed goodbye as he told her he loved her and she asked if it was OK if she stayed behind to hang out with friends,” says our source. “He told her OK but to take care of them to which she responded, ‘Of course; I’m going to get them right now to make sure they know where they’re going.’ ”
“I think it’s a great choice, and I don’t think they could have done much better than that,” Reinhart told MTV News after her performance at Chicago’s Lollapalooza. “She’s a huge diva with a huge, beautiful, amazing voice. I don’t think that there’s anybody who could give better critiques to people who are trying to be aspiring singers, so I think they did really good.”
Reinhart, who finished in third place during season 10, said she would want to return to the show that started it all for her — but as a mentor, not a judge.
“Honestly, there’s nothing that I really love more, aside from performing, but to be a guiding force and to help people and to mentor and to judge in the nicest way possible and just be real,” she said. “So I would love to [be a mentor] at some point. I mean, definitely working on my career right now, but maybe one day.”

Idol Innovation: An Interview With Casey Abrams[Idol Innovations, brief mention of Haley, 8/9]
It’s great that you brought Haley Reinhart in to sing with you on “Hit the Road Jack”. You both have so much vocal chemistry and, on American Idol, were pushing your boundaries constantly. Neither of you won, but at least you were out there taking risks.
You know what? That’s exactly what I’m talking about. Music is exploration. Everything should be exploration. I’ve tried it, and it’s fun to see what comes from taking chances – what better place to try that out than on American Idol? The audience will go along for the ride. I really don’t care if people like everything I do, or everything I did on the show. I’m just experimenting, and I want to be able to have fun making music. Wait … to a certain extent I do care. I hope at least some people liked it.
Q. Obviously, American Idol has been a great thing for you, it’s gotten you here… But is it kind of difficult at times too? Do you think people kind of have preconceived notions where they hear the words “American Idol” and they just have a certain expectation, whether it’s bad or good?
HR: Sure! I’m not gonna doubt that at all. Everybody’s different and it’s hard to break a lot of the wall down, break those barriers. And this just proves that I did it. And Lollapalooza is such a huge deal so I’m happy to be a guiding force in that sense.
