American Idol's Haley Reinhart Gives a Hauntingly Beautiful Performance of “Rhiannon”

Haley Reinhart, American Idol Season 10's frisky and feisty fighter gives a hauntingly beautiful performance of “Rhiannon” by Fleetwood Mac as her second song, producer Jimmy Iovine's choice, during the Final 3 Showdown.

"Haley says she’s got to remember the words to “Rhiannon”. It’s an abstract song, but she loves it. Jimmy says from the minute he met her, he thought she should sing a Stevie Nicks song. Haley loves Stevie Nicks. Her mom is a fan. Jimmy says the important thing is to grab the end so we can hear every color she has. The song begins slow with a piano. Haley’s unusual tone is perfect, haunting. The song speeds up, the band comes in, the wind machine starts blowing, and Haley seems a little preoccupied with remembering the words – keeping her from going full out at the end like Jimmy suggested. Randy Jackson: Why were you looking up like “thank God I got through that.” I think you did a good job with it. Your pitch was perfect. More of a somber mood for me. Steven, do guys have wind machines? Positively, says Aerosmith's Steven Tyler. Steven: You sang that song so beautifully. Jlo: It was a beautiful moment. It looked beautiful on camera. I thought you were going to take it a little further at the end, but it was a nice contrast to what you did first."
