Idol Judges Actually Criticize Haley Reinhart!

by at . Comments

Haley Reinhart sang Blondie's "Call Me" Wednesday night, and she certainly nailed the song's calling card - the "Call me!" exclamations in the chorus.

But she botched some notes and despite having all kinds of fun up there on stage, sort of lost her way. So much so that the judges even criticized her!

Watch her performance here and see if Reinhart deserved it:

"I didn't love at the beginning of it," opined Randy. "I don't know if it was the song that didn't do it for me. It just wasn't a showcase for your voice."

Steven concurred, and Jennifer said that "If I'm going to be honest, I'm going to agree with Randy." By J. Lo standards, that's tearing a new one!

Will she be in the American Idol bottom three? You tell us.

She's been my fave from Day 1, & I think the judges were a bit hard on her. Just about everyone who's left has had an off song~they didn't send Lauren home for her not-quite-that-good performance.

American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
