Haley Reinhart next up on "American Idol" doing Adele's "Rolling in the Deep." This could be a great moment.

She's really got the most interesting voice and is on her game tonight, comfortable sitting on a stool, spooling out the song effortlessly.

There are so many colors in her husky voice, as Jennifer Lopez has said. She sounds powerful and compelling. Even if she's wearing this silly red polka dot dress.She has a lot of courage, just getting up there and wailing, laying her soul bare. Maybe my favorite Haley performance -- and there's a huge last note, with smoldering eyes.

Randy Jackson says she's chosen "the perfect direction for you," calls it a "great performance." Steven Tyler, as always loves it. J.Lo liked how she made it her own, at times.
