Haley Reinhart is doing "Piece of My Heart" next on "American Idol." It's a good choice since it'll let her show off the colors in her voice.

Starts out all ugly and rough, very Janis Joplinish; and man, it's just excellent on the chorus, total soul. Not an enjoyable performance really, but it kept me listening, and proves she really can sing anything.

I've really come around on Haley. I didn't like her much at first but like her earnestness and refusal to take the easy way out.

"You're showing everyone that you're a contender," says Jennifer Lopez. Yuppers. Randy Jackson says you're back in this thing,

Steven Tyler says simply, "I couldn't find nuttin' wrong with that."
