Haley Reinhart Shines Bright on American Idol
Haley Reinhart reminds me of the children’s book “The Little Engine That Could.” The story is about a little train that has to work harder than every other train, but through positive thinking, hard work and perseverance the train finally makes it up a hill. This season of American Idol has been kind of like that for Haley. Once they were down to the Top 13 she was in the bottom three the first two weeks and seemed like she was on the verge of going home. Then she dug herself out and for three weeks she avoided the bottom three only to return there two of the last three weeks. What is interesting is that these last few weeks she has been better than she has ever been, yet the voters don’t seem to care.
Is Haley Reinhart’s return to the bottom three simply because she is a girl? I have a feeling that is part of it. She is good looking and female which makes the teen girls who make up a large portion of the audience get out the claws. Through it all, however, Haley has just chugged along and done the best she could do. It seems to me Haley Reinhart has one of two fates on American Idol. She will either be voted off this week or next week, or she will ride under the radar and find herself in the final two.
Tune in tonight at 8PM on Fox to see Haley Reinhart and the rest of the Top 5 sing and find out if Haley does well enough to live to sing another day.
