    As much as I disliked her this season of American Idol (not her singing but her attitude) and after listening to them both in my opinion Haley blows Vicci out of the water for this one and wins hands down :) Hopefully Vicci is less of a snob though.. Would love to see what everyone else thinks!

    Haley! She can sing anything from Leann Rimes to Tony Bennett to Adele. She is beautiful & to top it off …more sensual than Peggy Lee.

  8. ACE Says:

    Haley wins this hands down. There’s a reason Haley’s version has over OVER A MILLION hits on You Tube.

    Vikki has a good voice but Haley’s is more distinctive. She has that husky thing going on. I choose Haley

  15. r.santiago Says:
    June 12th, 2011 at 7:12 pm

    Haley is so much a lot better! The Voice contestant is no match at all.

    Haley hands down…neither are close to Adele, yet Haley had a much more intimate version than Vicci

  20. HookedonHaley Says:
    June 12th, 2011 at 7:25 pm

    Haley takes this one hands down! Her voice and talent is way beyond what Vicci has so it’s not really a fair fight. -HookedonHaley-

    Haley

  28. Hueha Says:
    June 12th, 2011 at 7:58 pm

    Definitely Haley. In my opinion, Vicci didn’t have the right amount of vocal intensity for that song. Still has a good voice, though. :)

  29. HookedonHaley Says:
    June 12th, 2011 at 8:02 pm

    Hands down – it’s Haley winning this one. It’s not really a fair fight though…these two are in different leagues.
    Good luck finding someone who will beat Haley!

  30. B-scot Says:
    June 12th, 2011 at 8:11 pm

    Haley’s version is better for me, I like the edginess and feel of it, along with the little vocally additions she adds they make you have to listen to many times to fully pickup.
    Vicci uses vocal power that makes you take notice but is little different than most other girl power singers out there today and quickly becomes old after hearing it a few times.

  31. chey Says:
    June 12th, 2011 at 8:20 pm

    Haley all the way. She rivals Adele on this one.

  46. Tara Says:
    June 12th, 2011 at 10:39 pm

    Haley, hands down. I hated Vicci’s rendition. I don’t think her voice suits the song. Haley, however, made me forget about Adele, that good.

    Haley Rocks.

  53. BigMouth Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 1:12 am

    This shows that Rolling in the Deep is an impressive song no matter who sings it, but the difference between Vicci Martinez and Haley Reinhart is like night and day, with Vicci shouting and Haley singing.

  54. Linda Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 1:16 am

    Haley all the way!

  55. the haliens Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 1:31 am

    Haley Reinhart is the best by a long way, there’s truly no comparison – her vocal range and versatility are exceptional switching from sultry blues to jazz to classic rock and even country (she sang ‘blue’ perfectly, she can sing anything) and her raspy tone is very emotive and unique.

    p.s: Rollin’ is not haley’s best vocal demonstration (the song was a bit too easy for her) watch ‘house of the rising sun’ or ‘I who have nothing’ on AI, amazing.

  56. Ed Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 1:44 am

    Haley by far is better

  57. Sam Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 1:47 am

    Haley’s version is better

  58. Tico Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 1:48 am

    My vote for Haley

  59. Chrus Says:

  61. Ripliancum Says:

    Haley Reinhart all the way! She is the best! And her version was even better then Adele’s!

    June 13th, 2011 at 7:14 am

    obviously haley,

  63. Lisa Pinel Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 7:16 am

    Haley Reinhart is the winner. I love her intensity and her style she puts on the song.

  64. Idolhead Ed Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 7:25 am

    Haley hands down. In fact I believe had Haley pulled that one out on the Voice all 4 chairs would have spun around after the first 5 notes. That being said I think Vicci has a geat chance of winning this show.No doubt Haley should have won Idol.

  65. kevinc Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 7:25 am

    I get no audio when I play Haley Reinhart’s video. I’ve tried with 3 browsers. (VM’s video works fine.)

  66. Idolhead Ed Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 7:47 am

    Without question Haley hands down. She put so much flavor and vocal color in to it. Vicci sang well but can’t touch haley’s version. That being said I do think Vicci has a chance at winning the Voice. Here’s what I thought about Haley http://idolheaded.com/blog/2011/06/shindig-my-tribute-to-haley-rinehart-relive-the-journey-from-fodder-to-favorite/

    Haley… Absolutely hands down better.

  69. Ken The Great Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 8:01 am

    Haley by a mile. That is all.

  70. kevinc Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 8:07 am

    Never mind previous email. I resolved my audio problem.

  71. Randy Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 8:09 am

    Sorry Vicci, you are good but Haley is stellar. Haley by a mile!

    Haley also had a full-on professional arrangement, Not really fair to compare that way.

  72. kevinc Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 8:10 am

    I vote for Haley Reinhart. They both had some pitch problems. But Haley showed more technical vocal skill and a bit better feel for the song.

  73. Christine McDow Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 8:20 am

    I had to adjust the volume in the video itself. Not quite sure why you and I had that issue…

  74. whateverblah Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 8:22 am

    Nothing against Vicci, but really now, it’s Haley all the way.

  75. chuck Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 8:23 am

    Haley, no contest really…

  76. marlene keating Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 8:26 am

    My vote goes to Haley Reinhart. She sang
    Rolling the Deep the best.

  77. Kailola Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 8:35 am

    I don’t think anyone The Voice has a chance against Haley. :)

  78. Frank Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 8:44 am

    I disagree. Vicci all the way. Wait and see tomorrow night. Hands down no contest.

  79. Seth Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 8:51 am

    Not even close, Haley easily wins this! :)

  80. Penny Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 10:20 am

    Haley rocks, way better! she owns the song!

  81. Beth Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 10:22 am

    No way to compare them, Haley’s version is too much better.

  82. siaotian Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 10:25 am

    Haley Reinhart, of course!

  83. Max Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 10:31 am

    No comparison Haley Reinhart wins this without batting an eye. Vicci is good but no where near that amazing tone, power, or phrasing as Haley.

  84. Idolhead Ed Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 10:35 am

    Looks like Haley just squeaks by as the winner. If it were any closer it would be in the next galaxy. But the song itself looks ot become the next “Don’t Know Why”. It could win some Grammys.

  85. Jennifer Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 10:41 am

    Vicci ROCKS!! ;-)

  86. Doodoo Says:

  94. Ann Says:

  95. Noel Says:

    Not even close. Haley killed this song hands down!

  96. Cecil Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 12:02 pm

    C’mon….Haley is clearly the winner!

  97. Fred Says:

    Haley Reinhart no contest, Haley will be a big star.

  98. Wayne Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 12:18 pm

    I thought Vicci did very well until I heard Haley’s verson. Wow that girl can sing, IMHO I think her version is better then Adles version!

    June 13th, 2011 at 12:28 pm

    Vicki is one of the contestants I’m rooting for in The Voice but with that said, Haley’s version is so much better than Vicki.

  101. gil king Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 12:36 pm

    HALEY REINHART LANDSLIDE!!!!
    She is a megastar in the making!
    Did “Rolling” better than Adele!

  102. Satenouz Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 12:41 pm

    Haley by a lot! More soul, more command, way more power. Far and away better vocally than Vicci!
    I actually liked her version better than the original by Adelle.
    Youtube Haley’s House of the Rising Sun or I Who Have Nothing! A new star may have been born out of American Idol this season.. Haley!

  103. torpedo Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 12:48 pm

    Haley! No contest!
    Btw..@Randy.. That arrangement of Haleys, By Jimmy I, had no advantage over Vicci’s arranged performance by C-Lo and Monica!

  104. Harry Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 1:02 pm

    Haley 100%,there is nobody on The Voice who can match her.

    Haley—-hands down. She was robbed on AI.

  109. Ringo Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 1:28 pm

    Haley by far. Vicci’s version was flat both in pitch and in presentation. I think it would be fairer to compare Haley and Edele’s versions. (I’m going with Haley again there.)

  110. Julius Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 1:44 pm

    Haley wins. No contest here at all.

  111. Zach Says:

  112. Deb Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 1:45 pm

    I heard both when they were on live – Haley!

  113. Luci Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 2:03 pm

    Haley is truly an exceptional singer! There is simply no comparison, with all due respect to Vicci, who sang a very good version of the song.

  114. Dee Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 2:19 pm

    This really isn’t fair since Haley got to sing the whole song, with better orchestration, and even back-up singers. She was more accomplished technically, but she was just singing a song. Vicci was ripping out a piece of her heart and soul and offering it to you. I’ll listen to anything Vicci sings any day of the week over Haley. She reaches out and touches her audience. She’s the real deal.

  115. shannon Says:

    Not only is Haley’s version better, it is FAR better. She should have been the winner of American Idol.

  124. Gary Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 4:25 pm

    It’s no insult to other singers to say that Haley is better. She’s in a league of her own.She can do clean, raspy, sexy, sultry. And can switch from one to another in a beat. And she can do just about genre from blues to jazz to country to pop to R&B to rock. My ears have never heard anything like her.

  125. afiq myr Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 4:32 pm

    June 13th, 2011 at 4:38 pm

    Haley Reinhart is miles ahead. Haley is the winner and NO she’s NOT a snob. You who said that, are dreaming and using old worn out talking points built on LIES. Haley all the way!

    Haley. She changed the phrasing. She did some awesome vocal gymnastics during the bridge. She ended with a bang. She earned a lot of fans after this performance. I think this was her first YouTube video that reached a million views.

    Vicci sounded out of breath. I like the rocker tone though. I’m a little surprised Christina turned for that. Oh well.

    Obviosly Haley! It’s not really even close. Haley is in a completely different league. After watching vicci’s I have concluded that AI is still better than the voice. And Haley should have won this season IMO.

  171. Mandy Says:
    June 13th, 2011 at 10:56 pm

  172. Ken Says:
    June 14th, 2011 at 3:15 am

    Hello from Singapore! No offence to Vicci’s fans but is this like a trick question, cos Haley Reinhart’s version is distinctive and in a league of its own. I doubt that there will be anyone (save Adele herself) who can even come close to Haley.

  173. Hanaf Says:
    June 14th, 2011 at 5:01 am

    Did you listen to Jennifer Lopez’s comment to Haley after she sang Rolling? “There were moments when we forgot about Adel…”. I think a more fare comparison would be to compare Haley’s performance to Adel herself. I vote for Haley over Adel.

  174. Mia Says:
    June 14th, 2011 at 5:04 am

    Not much of a fight, really.

    Vicci Martinez has a unique voice, but one that lacks the kind of vocal power that is necessary to carry this song. She sounded stretched to her capacity as opposed to Haley Reinhart carrying the song like an effortless flute.

    Plus, Haley’s artistry is what makes her stand out in this fight.

    Changing up the whole bridge before the second chorus? And that whistle note she threw at the end? Absolutely compelling. That’s the distinction she needed to make the song her own, because Adele’s such a great singer that any cover of Adele’s songs would be vulnerable to being called as “karaoke”.

    Vicci who sang Adele’s version note for note, fails to reach to Adele’s standards and instead fell into the trap of making herself sound like a bad karaoke version of the original.

    I like Vicci the best on The Voice, but Haley’s just out of this world.

    The only person who voted for Vicci Martinez in this battle at comment 78 clearly has some hearing troubles. (Btw, there isn’t any actual voting going on, right? XD)

    Vicci Martinez is my favourite to win The Voice and I do think she has an amazingly unique voice. But this was a bad song choice for her. This song needed strong vocal power to carry the verses, and sadly Vicci sounded stretched to her limits during the chorus.

    Other than Haley Reinhart obviously winning the battle-of-vocal-prowess, I think it’s Haley’s artistry that makes her stand out the most in this battle.

    Changing the whole bridge before the second chorus? That whistle note she added at the end of that? Changing up the ending of the song to showcase her vocal range instead? Absolutely compelling.

    If you’re going to cover the great Adele, you have to either sing better or at least on the same par; or you have to make the song your own. Otherwise, you’re risked being called a pale imitation of the original or just bad karaoke.

    And that’s the distinction between the two. Haley Reinhart made the song her own AND sang on par with Adele, if not better. And Vicci’s was a pale imitation of the original.

    THAT’S what you call giving it hands down. I do support comment 78 in that light, it really was a no contest.

  183. Josh Says:
    June 14th, 2011 at 7:16 am

  184. Tyra Says:
    June 14th, 2011 at 7:17 am

    I think the only clout that Vicci Martinez’s fans can hold on to in this battle is her “passion” in belting out the verses.

    One, the subtlety in Haley’s phrasing brings out the emotion of the song much more compellingly. The sadness of the tone wrapped around “we could’ve had it all” that wasn’t found in Adele’s version was absolutely brilliant.

    And the anger in the bridge that she completely changed up before the second chorus was much more emotional that Vicci stomping her foot and “giving a piece of her heart” for the entire song. No, I didn’t feel your pain, Vicci, I just saw someone stomping her foot because she looked into the song. But I felt the emotions behind Haley’s words. That’s the difference.

    Two, restraint in that so-called “passion” is also a learned skill, and that might’ve done Vicci good. People like Jacob Lusk who was often taught on Idol the gravity of restraining your emotions often performed much better when they did. James Durbin could’ve taken a leaf out of that book too.

    But bottom line, “passion” is not a free pass for lesser singing in a singing battle. Especially when the other singer outshone you on range, artistry and easily brought the same level of “passion” into it as well.

    Vicci did sing the song with a lot of emotion. However, the question to ask yourself is– which version could you imagine hearing being played on the radio. In that respect, Haley wins easily. Obviously, Adelle sings with a lot of power– but for me, and I lot of people, I think, Haley’s version is more interesting vocally than Adelle’s.

    Without a doubt, Haley. She’s got one of the most unique and interesting female voices to come out in a long time. If you haven’t listened to her studio rendition of RITD yet, do it. She’s amazing. Vicci did well but Haley is star quality.

  224. alan Says:
    June 15th, 2011 at 10:59 am

    Okay, Haley Won this Vote, but to me VICCI ruled this song at the bone level. She owned it and sold it. She will go far.

  225. Torpedo Says:
    June 15th, 2011 at 3:04 pm

    @alan.. The “bone” you’re talking about is what the dog buried! That’s Vicci’s level for her RITD!
    Haley improved Adele’s version bigtime! The runs, the soul, the range, the emotion was spectacular! Youtube has 2M hits on her version, nearly the same at Itunes.. and Haley is not even being promoted these days.

    Vicci is in desperate jeopardy of not even surviving The Voice’s quarter finals, primarily because she’s just average, has no range and everything she’s performed thus far, is “same ol stuff”!… Tell me you’d actually pay hard earned cash for a Vicci concert? just to be looking for the exit before the break out of boredom!

    HALEY is so far beyond whatever Vicci will ever accomplish, especially with her lack of diversity both vocally and genre!

  226. S Says:
    June 15th, 2011 at 6:00 pm

  227. Becca Says:
    June 15th, 2011 at 9:06 pm

    @S in comment above.

    Honey, did you even listen to the two videos?

    Vicci may have a unique voice, but on both counts of uniqueness and soul, Haley wins without a fight.

    Haley’s unique not in just the tone of her voice, it’s her choice of notes, runs and intensity. Whereas Vicci’s just relying on her huskiness. With Haley, it’s her unique huskiness and much, much more. (Plus, if t’s just down to their God-given voices, Haley still wins hands sown. Did you not hear her borderline yodeling of the verses? She switches from her falsetto to her main register like craaazyyy!)

    This is not even Haley’s best performance, I YouTube-ed her and dammmmmn, this girl can SING. Check out ‘House of the Rising Sun’ & ‘Moanin”.

    And if there’s one recurring theme in the songs she does, it’s soul. This girl has a lot of soul in her song.

    Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy Vicci and she is one of my favourites to win The Voice; but Haley’s a little too strong for any competitor.

  228. Ben Says:
    June 15th, 2011 at 9:38 pm

    Either the author severely underestimated Haley Reinhart or he/she was just banking in her popularity to increase the traffic to this site.

    C’mon, you must’ve seen the Haley Reinhart landslide win from a mile away. Even casual viewers, not just Idol fans, and maybe even Vicci Martinez’s fans would’ve thrown their vote for Haley here.

    It’s just not much of a fight, she was so obviously winning every aspect there is to be won in this battle. They’re so far away from each other, it’s not even funny.

    Good attempt at site publicity, anyways.

  229. Big Stu Says:
    June 15th, 2011 at 11:08 pm

    Haley makes Vicci sound and look like an amateur little girl! When they both take the stage, Haley owns it and the stage swallows Vicci up!
    Vicci simply does not have the range or the genre diversity that Haley excells at! Haley comes off like a seasoned and experienced pro, which is so very unique for a 20 year old young woman!
    Haleys strong vocals alone, blow Vicci out of the water!

    Haley is technically a better singer but she lacks emotional connection. The only emotion she exhibits is anger or “fun”. There is a complete lack of vulnerability… a wall between the artist and the listener.
    Therefore, Vicci’s version is far superior, to me. She has a great deal of raw emotion. Technical ability is not enough. It’s all about making people feel.

  232. GoVikki Says:
    June 17th, 2011 at 10:45 am

    Viccis voice is much more pleasant to listen to than Haleys. Haleys voice is just annoying. Tim Halperine has a better version than both of them on Idolgotitwrong dot com.

  233. Katie Says:
    June 17th, 2011 at 12:02 pm

    Vicci’s version has emotion, while Haley’s is full of growls and body grinds. She doesn’t know how to show emotion when she sings.

    You simply have no ears obviously! Vicci is one dimensional, couldn’t hit the next octave if she were goosed on stage, and has only a fraction of the soul that Reinhart possesses! Don’t even mention anything like stage presence or owning the audience.. Vicci is a kid that’s light years below where Haley is at right now on her way to super-stardom!

    The only reason that Vicci may even possibly survive this elimination round will be because those two barbi-twins and the cowboy on CeeLo’s team should have never made it as far as they did! Neither of those two acts would have made it out of Idol’s Vegas week! LOL.. Nikia will win his primary save! Vicci will be darn lucky to pick up CeeLo’s coaches save!

    PS…. Yo vocalcoach .. Haley’s rendidion of RITD was better than Adele’s! Those 2M hits on youtube and Itunes are there for a reason! Has Vicci broken the 1000 hits barrier yet? Just askin? LMAO

    Hey #231, Where you listening to the same two audios that the rest of us were? Ya gotta be kidding! haha. Don’t you think that the vast majority of the comments here came from an emotional connection with Haley? Are you Vicci’s mom by chance? Yikes what a wierd analysis ms vocalcoach!

    @GoVicci – I just heard the Tim Halperin’s version now….its actually pretty good but mainly for the arrangement. His voice is still meh other than the falsetto. Put Haley’s voice on that arrangement and she’d hit it out of the park. She controls her voice a lot better and sings it with more passion

    Best to worst versions of the song Ive heard so far imo

    1. Haley
    2. Adele
    3. John Legend
    4. David Cook
    5. Vicci Martinez

    Day light

    Mike posner’ version

    Hahaha, yup, not fishy at all that amidst an almost unanimous vote for Haley Reinhart as the winner of this battle, that three sureptitious comments in a row at #231, #232 and #233 voted for Vicci, all citing the only catch-all response that Vicci fans could hold onto: “emotions”.

    Riiiiight, of course you’re not all the same person. Be more obvious, guys.

    You probably didn’t even click the video. Because you have to have the emotional comprehension of a loaf of bread to have seen that and say “Haley Reinhart can’t sing with emotion” with a straight face.

    The emotions that she injected into the tone of her voice, the phrasing of the words and the expression of her face are all there to prove you wrong. With that delivery, she could’ve made you cry during her solemn “we could’ve had it all” before she hit the last chorus. And made you feel as angry as she was when she changed up the entire phrasing of the bridge before the second chorus.

    With Vicci……meh. All I see is a girl stomping her foot because she was into the song. Not because she felt sad or angry or frustrated. Just a girl who wanted to perform well at her audition. In the end thwarting the emotions behind the lyrics when she ran out of breath and had to sing outside her range. Pity.

    “Haley is technically a better singer but she lacks emotional connection. The only emotion she exhibits is anger or “fun”. There is a complete lack of vulnerability… a wall between the artist and the listener.
    Therefore, Vicci’s version is far superior, to me. She has a great deal of raw emotion. Technical ability is not enough. It’s all about making people feel.”
    What a load of crap and what audacity! Haley is so good because she can do exactly what you said she can’t. Support Vicci if you must, just don’t make such a BIG fool of yourself in the process.

    As an accomplished pro musician, I have the ability to objectively listen to a singer and make my evaluation based on a number of parameters that characterizes a “good” singer. I listened to Vicki first and then to Haley.

    While Vicki obviously had an intensity and passion in her performance, technically she was no where close to matching Haley’s performance. Haley had the intensity and passion but also had the refined vocal and emotional nuances with technical ability to move me emotionally, as well. She is, in fact, just a more developed artist. I don’t dislike Vicki but she obviously has a way to go to perform at the level that Haley is at. Good fortune to both of them!

    Haley wins Hands down!!! Haley uses less power but more technical variation/range in her singing. Vicci sings with more force but I never liked excessive power in singing. It gets old and annoying. There are tons of singers out there that can power their way through a song. But only a few good ones can weave their way vocally and subtly in a sultry, blusy way that is very unique and endearing.

    Ok, Vicci’s voice is clearly better and she doesn’t have to do nearly as much falsetto to pull off a great song. Haley at that point had lot’s of professional coaching but her voice alone could not pull off that performance.

    Haley knocked the ball right out of the park. Vicci is good but she is more raw and powers her way through the song. I found Vicci rendition too much in the face. Haley has more subtlety and her technical nuances she added into the song made it much more interesting. I actually prefer Haley interpretation over Adele herself. HALEY is a songbird of the first order.

  260. whateverblah Says:
    June 23rd, 2011 at 9:04 pm

    @Antoinette, it’s called changing the song to add something to it. If you think Haley needed to do the falsetto, you haven’t paid attention to any of her other performances.

  261. Patti Says:
    June 26th, 2011 at 7:56 pm

    Vicci for sure. Haley tries to sound just like Adele and has to reach for some of the high notes. Vicci makes this her own and blows her out of the water. GO VICCI!

  262. Roz Says:
    June 26th, 2011 at 10:15 pm

    You are kidding right. This was not even close.
    Vicci has a decent voice and I wish her well, but she cannot compare to Haley Reinhart.
    Haley even outdid the wonderful Adele on this one.
    Haley by a landslide.
    For the person who didn’t like Haley’s attitude.
    You don’t know her, those who do says she is a sweetheart. She just is not a pushover, and has some confidence. You have to be a little tough in the show biz world or get eaten alive. Haley is amazing!

    After listening to the Voice singers like Vicci or Beverley, it is amazing when you compare them to Haley. Like Vicci does here and in her other songs,there is nothing remarkable about her voice at all. Basically a karaoke version and not really that great a one as well. Haley, like in every song she sings , brings something so unique that it becomes almost magical. Haley is a true artist and the others like Vicci, merely singers. There isn’t one song Vicci sings that I would ever listen to again after hearing it, while with Haley, I can’t stop re-playing them . I am amazed at how ordinary all the Voice singers sound after listening to Haley’s songs

    You gotta be kidding! I have checked almost every cover of RITD (including Alvin and The Chipmunks and Vicci)and they ALL try to sound like Adele. It’s obvious to everyone that Haley is the ONLY one to do it differently from Adele. In what way has Vicci made it her own? You are obviously a Vicci fan and are entitled to your opinion – just don’t make a fool of yourself in the process.

    @Crista,
    The only person saying that Vicci has a recording deal is vicci Martinez. No one at Universal is saying that there is a deal or future contract for her. Haley on the other hand is not talking about her record deal but it is obvious she has one since Interscope just put up an Amazon page on orders for her future CD yesterday (in addition to the EP that she already has). http://www.amazon.com/New-Release-Haley-Reinhart/dp/B005BT5ZQO/ref=sr_1_10?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1310523271&sr=1-10

    Vicci can sing but she is an ordinary dime a dozen singer.

    Is this question still lingering. I felt Haley was something special when I first saw her do ‘House of The Rising Sun’ on idol (I am not a fan of the show but, I happen to be surfing at the time), and then Led Zeppelin members called her (by way of idol execs) and gave her permission to do any song of theirs. They never give permission to a dud. Haley has no competitors to grades her skills by. This contest is over, isn’t it?
