American Idol Top 8: Haley Reinhart, Stefano Langone Voted Off
Haley Reinhart and Stefano Langone did not do well last night during the American Idol Top 8 live performances.
It was music from the movies week for the American Idol Top 8 which means we saw a huge range in the song choices last night. Some were good (Jacob Lusk), others were not as good (Haley Reinhart, Stefano Langone). With the competition getting more and more intense every week you have to be your best or risk going home. Here are my picks for the worst singers of the week.
Haley Reinhart looked fantastic in her knee-high boots and short dress. Steven Tyler even made a joke about it being so short you could see up it. As good as she looked she seemed a little overwhelmed by Blondie’s “Call Me” and didn’t really find her stride until the end of the song. When it came to the judges Jennifer Lopez said she was hesitant to say anything bad because she didn’t want any more of the girls to be voted out. It wasn’t that Haley was terrible, she just wasn’t that great.
Stefano Langone chose the Boys II Men hit “End of the Road” and it was a mess. The judged harped on him so much about putting on a performance and connecting with the audience early in the competition that he now over does it. His moves remind me of a marionette puppet on a string and while I will admit that he hit a few notes that were good, most of it was just a flat, over-sung, almost shouted version of the song. He even admitted that he is basically just trying to please the audience. While the other performers are trying to find who they are; Stefano Langone is trying to be who the audience wants him to be and it comes off as fake.
My guess is that Stefano Langone and/or Haley Reinhart could find themselves back in the bottom three and in danger of being sent home from American Idol tonight. Tune in at 8PM on FOX to find out if they live to sing another week.
