Haley Reinhart Has a Moment on American Idol

by at . Comments

Haley Reinhart had a moment on American Idol last night.

That's what Randy Jackson said about the finalist's cover of "I Who Have Nothing." Haley was joined on stage by a string section and responded perfectly to Lady GaGa's advice to give fans "drama."

Reinhart surely did, as J. Lo deemed it "one of the best performances of the year."

Prior to this incredible rendition, Haley delivered a somewhat shaky version of Michael Jackson's "Earth Song." The judges questioned her song choice and we've posted a video of it below for readers to sound off on. Enjoy!
