Got Something to Add?
If Haley gets eliminated tomorrow, or better yet, NOT win this competition, there is something truly wrong with America.
Meh, all i kept thinking when i watched it was Casey woulda made this pretty cool- Ironically he probably would have growled much less then Haley did.
Haley is amazing, and there are sides of her that have never been seen. Her tender 'web-cam' recorded version of 'Like a Star'....where she sings along to a karoake track, is fantastic. It's on youtube. Soft ballads, hard rockin blues, jazz......she hits them all out of the park. She could probably sing country better than the two country singers on the show, if she tried.
Then there's her image. Sexy, but sweet. The smile is infectious.
No singer appeals to everyone. Haley is no different. But, she has legions of folks in love with her right now, and I'm one of them.
someone that outdid the soul singer for once! (lusk) She outshone him! This was very good! B+
lusk B (knocked down from A because of the scream at the end, where the riff was fine to end on, didn't need the scream)
country guy D+ (bland bland bland)
Alaina C- (uninspiring but ok)
James C (off key too much and that caterwauling one note was ugh)
Incredible how she was one of my least favorites when the season started, and over the past few weeks she has become my stand-out favorite.
I sincerely believe that those three judges and the producers are banging their heads on walls every night for not seeing Haley and for not banking on her early on. It has probably caused enough brain injury to them that they seem to hear a different track than what we hear on our TVs.
I honestly think that their comments are their inner egos and divas (as for JLo it's not even inner) talking coz clearly, THEY'VE REALIZED THAT THEY'VE GOTTEN IT WRONG. They just can't admit it.
Well, they tried to by the end of tonight. But I'm expecting another step backwards next week. Again... coz of ego.
She's amazing and the most improved. She blew away the rest tonight! . I could of just punched Jlo and Randy tonight. Their comments were totally uncalled for on Haleys first song. She killed it. it makes you wonder if they are being pressured to trash her... Tonight was James weakest performance. He needs t quit listening to Jimmy Iovine and get back to his rock roots. Iovine wants to make him a pop star, and he used to Haley to market Ga Gas song that will be coming out in a couple weeks. I don't like that guy.
wow! I've heard that song a 1,000 times, but I have NEVER< no not EVER heard it done so very well. Haley you showed America who deserves to be THE American IDOL!!! YOU!!!
Haley's the understated underdog, and I love her about that. If she becomes the first female Idol in four years, I will shit my pants.
Also, I think you're missing the You & I video performance. It was amazing, and as a Gaga fan, I think she did justice to the song.
I think the judges just don't see Haley winning it all. Taking an unreleased GAGA song is risky and the most amazing thing that has happened in years!
When she has the right song...WOW!
I actually thought her first song was good too.
I'm really starting to like Haley a lot...she's a fighter too!!
Vocally she has better range than all of them. She can sing high, low, in between and has better control of her voice than any of them. James goes high, struggles low. Scotty can go low, but flat everywhere else. Lauren is good but lacks the range, and excitement that Haley brings. Jacob...he's a wailer and that's about it. Haley is the complete package and if it wasn't stacked against her she should win. But in reality, she's got no shot.
She is the anti-chosen one. The one they have hated the entire season. The one that is so good they finally had to give it up.
best performance of the season by faaaar! she has been my favorite constastant since the live shows started! hope she wins!
You mean she can't stand up against fail-wails, sharp and shrill notes, the 'if-it-ain't-broke-don't-even-try-to-sing-well" and the under-confident Carrie clone? Yeah, right.
Haley has a great vocal range and is never pitchy. She has a unique voice and style, and she is never boring. Keep her in people -- she is a winner!!
People are so jealous and they claim she is overly sexy when she peforms, but that isnt the case. Look at artists like Katy Perry, Haley is tame compared to her. She is a beautiful and sexy confident women and it's sad she gets flack for it. She was great tonight.
Everytime Alison Iraheta took the stage, I always stood and watched her performance in awe. I'm doing the same with Haley.
Shock elimination for Haley. For some reason people are not connecting with her and think it is her time to go. Early returns show Haley near the bottom of the voting.
Rickey please dont endorse her!!! we don't want her to get eliminated because of te rickey curse. Also lauren alainas inspiration is miley... case closed . Hayley ftw
Bennie and the Jets and House of the Rising Sun are the TOW BEST performances of the season. Congrats Haley!
Great Job...unforgetable performance - but who is dressing her ? Please bring back the polka dot dress and heels
SHe is good but she comes across as such a slutty singer. Looks like she is gonna start ripping her clothes in any minute.
I dunno still think Lauren has so much more potential than her.
and this sexy vibe it doesn't fill with the song because the lyrics!! that's why i prefer Siobhan's version because i think she get what the song's about and tried to connect that feeling in her performance last year!!
Anyway, it was a great solid vocal performance by Hayley!!!!
and yes, i want a Hayley/James finale too!!!
Haley was so good tonight! Both songs were amazing. I even loved the Gaga song and wondered why it wasn't on her new album. It sure beats both of the singles so far. Haley's second song, in particular, just blew me away. It was perfect for her.
There is something majorly wrong with America. To vote in Lauren and NOT Haley is just wrong. Lauren can sing, sure, but her voice is NO where near as strong as Haley's. I am just plain pissed at the American people right now.
marcus, then if you could scream the song better, where the **ck have ya been? Didn't even see you in the top 150,000. u r a squirrel....get a life or a clue whichever comes 1st
I agree on the first song to, I thought it was crap the way they hated on her there. At least Steven gave her props on having to actually figure out how to sing the song rather than fallow a map someone else already laid out.
Mike agree about all the great stuff yu say about Haley; her range, her control, her style, excitment...amazing. However, I think she's got a very good chance to taking it ALL!
LOL at the "Rickey curse"! I think Rickey has done well. He got Lee and Kris Allen to win so I think he could get Haley to the finale. WE HOPE!!!!!!!!!!!! lolz... Haley FTW!!!!!! She is clearly the best they have left.
She has enough fashion sense to not wear a prom dress and cowboy boots. So she at least has that going for her.
Funny how flaming pianos aren't cheesy.
i like her stipper moves... it's called being sexy... i like her voice too... she is over 18 years old.. right?
If Simon were on the show he'd be telling the truth, which is she's the only good singer left on the show. And, with his excellent powers of manipulation, all you lambs would whole-heartedly agree with him.
She's fantastic, I don't get the hate.
Ana, I agree. I can't stand watching her perform for that reason. Her moves are so cheesy.
Where is Simon when you need him? He would definitely call her out on it.
Idol is definitely doing some pimping. James' second song is also pimp-spot worthy, but they chose Haley for that spot.
"You and I" will be on the album! The album simply isn't released yet, coming May 23, including You and I, and since they placed the song on Idol that way, probably the third single.
