Haley Reinhart survives the wind machine on 'American Idol'

"American Idol" broke out the wind machine causing Haley Reinhart's silky pewter dress to billow and her curly locks fly in the breeze, during her rendition of Stevie Nicks' Fleetwood Mac classic “Rhiannon.” (May 18, 2011) Photo Credit: Fox

Haley Reinhart is singing again on "American Idol," doing "Rhiannon." They're showing everyone's initial audition. She's changed the least, both in her looks and her style. 

Man, this is excellent. She spools out slowly, just plays with the song with her voice. She said she likes Stevie Nicks' "eerie" vibe, which is spot-on. This has the same thing going on. She can win this whole thing...

A bit low energy, an all the wind machine stuff is pretty cheesy and distracting, but a great start, and she brings it home, too.

Randy Jackson is cracking up, says vocally it was spot-on. "You're in the zone right now." He makes fun of her wind machine. Steven Tyler loved it, Jennifer Lopez liked how she looked, calls it "pretty."
