Haley Reinhart of 'American Idol'
Hometown: Wheeling, IL
Currently Resides: Wheeling, IL
Our Overly Hasty First Impressions: Haley doesn't do "subtle." She bellows, wails, growls and throws in runs where none were previously deemed necessary. And sometimes, in the process, she seems to lose tract of little things like melody and phrasing. There's little doubt she has a big enough voice to go far and she's definitely got a marketably attractive look, but will the "Idol" vocal coaches give her the proper training to take that next step? Or will she give an misguided, overblown performance in Week One or Week Two and be sent packing? Not sure. But my first comparison for Haley? Mikalah Gordon. That's not an *awful* sign. Nor a very good one.
