American Idol saves the final spot in its performance shows for its favorites, its most buzz-worthy contestants.
Therefore, it was a bit perplexing last night when the concluding act was not Pia Toscano or Jacob Lusk or James Dubin. Instead, Haley Reinhart was given the honor...
... and she proceeded to prove she was worthy of it.
Covering "Bennie and the Jets," Haley started out lounging on a piano (the same one Durbin set on fire) and ended up waving her arms around on stage, clearing having fun and leading Steven Tyler to quip: "You. Sing. Sexy."
Randy called this the best performance of the night. Do you agree?
