“If you want Janis, I’ll give it to you.” Haley Reinhart

The American Idol judges have been comparing Haley Reinhart to Janis Joplin all season, so it was only fitting that she chose the legendary rocker’s “Piece of My Heart” on Rock & Roll Hall of Fame week. But did she do it justice?

Not entirely. But she also didn’t bomb by any means …

Steven Tyler said that, “I couldn’t find nothing wrong with that … Janis gave the voice to rock ‘n’ roll back in ’68, and you did it again tonight.”

Easy there. While she’s worthy of her spot in the finals and clearly improving out there, she’s going to have to step it up a bit to stick around.

Think she’ll be on the block tonight?
