Look who took a real risk? Hopefully, it will pay off.
For the first time in American Idol history last night, a contestant performed a previously unreleased song by a major artist during the competition round. The ears of every little monster in the Idol audience perked up when Ryan Seacrest announced that Haley Reinhart would be singing a song by Lady GaGa that to date has not been made available to the public…unless you know how to use Youtube.
With GaGa's bless, Haley performed a rendition of You & I, a song not on any of GaGa's albums, but one she has been performing out on the road with the Monster Ball ever since she debuted it last June at Elton John's White Tie and Tiara Ball fundraiser in England.
So how did she do? See for yourself! Check out the video (above) to hear Haley croon out her version of GaGa's You & I!
Was it enough to make U vote for her last night???
