Haley Smith Aims for a Fourth Job on American Idol

by at . Comments

She's already a House cleaner, a busser and a meat packer.

But Haley Smith, an 18-year old who - by her own admission - lives "in the middle of nowhere" in Colorado, hopes to add a fourth job to her resume: American Idol champion!

The nature lover auditioned on last night's Aspen-based episode and blew the judges away with a cover of "Tell Me Something Good." Randy and Jennifer both loved her retro vibe, comparing her to artists from the 1960s and 1970s, while Steven said it was an "honor" to her Haley sing.

That's high praise. See for yourself if it was deserved:
