Idol Star Haley Reinhart Signed To Interscope!

| Filed under: Music MinuteAmerican Idol

See? You don't need to win American Idol to become a star. Hell, you don't even need to make it into the top five!

Haley Reinhart was a fan favorite and third runner-up this past season on American Idol. Girl's got soul and she's got funk and now, she's got a record deal with 19 Entertainment/Interscope Records. A rep for the label confirms that Haley has just inked her contract for a solo album and will get started right away.

For those you who missed out on her growl and bite this season, have a listen to her rendition of Benny & The Jets in the video (above).

    Great news. I hope they let her pick the songs- she picked some really challenging stuff.

  2. 2

    This is really sad; she'll be used, abused, & passed around the Black Thug Record Moguls until there's nothing left and dump her body behind some sleazy Santa Monica Blvd. motel dumpster…

    im so glad. she had the best voice by far.

    She was second runner up, not third. I love the site, but can't you double check stuff before you post?

  6. 6

    LOVE her and I think that is my all-time favorite idol performance. I am so excited to get her album.

  7. 7

    Good for her…she should have won

  8. 8

    Um, that would be second runner up which would be third place which would definitely be IN the TOP 5, idiot! About Hailey though, she made terrible song choices on the show, which made me hate her but her voice isn't terrible and if she picks the right avenue she will do well.

    ew. hayley can't sing at all. she was the worst singer of the bunch. sorry, hayley
    it's all about pia toscano. bitches. hayley sucks no one is gonna buy her shitty music.
    hayley who? PIa Toscano wins hands down. haters go suck a dick.

    ughhh didnt like her at all. she ruined some great songs, especially michael jackson's Earth Song (never perform that song again, plzzzz dont for fucks sake). she should stick with jazz but i dont see her career having a long stand at all. and my god is she so full of herself and has such a stank attitude. theres a fine line between confidence and arrogance and she completely embodied the latter… major turn-off especially when she didnt have the best vocals out of this years group. i remember when she thought she was gonna make it to the top 2 with scotty and you see her reaction when ryan seacrest called out laurens name instead, you could tell that bitch thought it was gonna be her. i laughed so hard, shes so fake.

    Lion girl will be dumped next year. Recycled "stars"

    goodbye pia toscano and her floppy single.

    I know she had a pretty big fan base - considering she only lost by very little to Lauren during the voting for the top 2 final contestants (and yes that information leaked out). Haley was my favorite, I don't care what anyone says about her - whether it's her attitude, arrogance, or that growl she's now known for - I love her!!! As stated by Haley herself, she claims her growl was born on idol hence the "sing for your life" type of thing that you have to do unless you wanna be forgotten, boring, or sent home. She's got soul, confidence, and she's not afraid to speak up or stick up for herself. I like the "bitch" in her.. plus, being in the spotlight requires having some back bone and/or tough skin. Go Haley, I'll definitely be buying her debut album..

  14. 14

    Love me some Haley ! She is awesome! You go gurl!

  15. 15

    apparently you don't need to be able to sing either..it was painful just to hear her sing one song, i can't imagine sitting thru an entire album

  16. 16

    Re: white_is_ugly – pia had no interesting character to her voice at all and not a very big fan base. thats why she got voted of so early. you obviously arnt a musical person because hayleys voice is considered to be one of the greatest. voices like hers are sought after. there are thousands of pias and they are all boring . there are only a few hayleys. and for all you haters you should go get your ears checked because i think your all tone deaf. of course america picked the two christian country singers to be in there top two. it had nothing to do with talent. hayley and casey were so talented but unfortunatly they didnt fit into the all american , christian category.

    Re: T.E.A.M.J.O.L.I.E – sorry to tell you but i myself am a skilled musician, i have perfect pitch, and i can tell you when there is actually great vocal talent but her voice is not rare, special at all, or stood out from the rest unless you want to include that annoying growl she has. there were much better voices than haleys on idol this season and if you didnt think so, then YOU'RE tone deaf.

  18. 18

    So happy for her, I am completely in love with her voice, so unique and the control she has over it blows me away! I can't wait to hear the direction she'll be going in, I'm hoping they'll let her challenge the music industry a little, her voice can take it and it would be a disaster if they tried to fit her into the wrong mold! Go Haley!

  19. 19

    Her attitude and self-importance was such a turn off. Way over-rated.

  20. 20

    fuck this bitch she licks donkey dick. She was horrid on the show and FUG as all fugs. Hated her. She was the worst one ever. Nobody wants her album. She seemed like a huge bitch too.

  21. 21

    Love me some Haley! Cant wait!

    Re: divo257 – "Um, that would be second runner up which would be third place which would definitely be IN the TOP 5, idiot!"

    Yes um, it's called "proof-reading", "checking facts", and "being intelligent". Very foreign concepts here.

  23. 23

    Re: sweetness16 – i find it very hard to beileve that your are a musician. hayley has a unique twang in her voice that is very sought over, she has a rasp which is very attractive and amazing control. not once in the entire show did she go of. she has a great blues voice. and i dont understand how the judges kept bugging how about not having a select genre when she was rockin the blues thing the whole time. well its your opinion and all i can do is feel sorry for you that your tone deaf.

  24. 24

    Isn't she stripping at the same Strip Joint Pia is?

  25. 25

    Re: T.E.A.M.J.O.L.I.E – first off your wrong in the fact that she does not have a good blues voice, she has a good jazz voice, but her vocals are not really flexible to other genres. im sorry but she did not bring any justice to that led zeppelin song that she sang and her adele cover of rolling in the deep? ive heard way better covers than hers. when she sang with tony bennett on the finale or did her jazz duet with casey? that was where she shined the most. and you said that she has a unique twang that was very sought over? her voice may be desirable towards you but most people dont dream of having that particular tone of voice unless they have low to average standards in tonality. and by the way, i dont need to prove my credibility of being a musician to you but i can tell you that ive been around the industry block for a quite a while honey.

  26. 26

    Re: sweetness16 – so you hink that pia is better? her voice is boring and there are so many out there like her. i can tell your american because your taste in music is terrible. if she was a country singer or a christian singer she would get commended. there are some amazing singers in america but they dont get the recognition they deserve or they get bashed for being controversial all because they dont fit a certain type. and i said hayley WAS a fantastic blues singer and yes she is also good at jazz. her performance of house of the rising sun was the best id seen on idol. if she was in europe people would be cheering her on. but i guess america is just to narrow minded(speaking generally of course).

  27. 27

    Re: T.E.A.M.J.O.L.I.E – i never said a word about pia. pia to me is boring and isnt gonna be a superstar, hands down. the whitney houston days are over, no one really appreciates the constant ballads like pia specializes in her singing. and yes i may be american but if you think im all about the lady gaga/katy perry/taylor swift shit, you are sooo sooo wrong cause i dont consider that music, i consider it shit. i appreciate older and more influential music such as psychedlic/classic rock, the kind of genre that haley actually likes herself but i dont think her voice fits it, im sorry i dont. her voice is great for jazz but thats as far as i see it and i dont see her becoming a star in the making. i dont see any stars in the making coming from this season on idol, then again do we ever? im not into country at all but i can see lauren and scotty making it big in the country industry, the country lovers eat up american idol and watch it all the time on their TV's, thats why carrie underwood became a country superstar and is the top earning american idol singer.

  28. 28

    Re: sweetness16 – what about ray charles , amy winehouse , adele . the list goes on and on . modern and old singers who made it big in one genre. amy winehouse has a great blues voice and she stuck to making blues inspired music and she was a star. its good to see your not like most americans when its comes to music but singers can be stars just in the blues or jazz genre.

    Haley was the best singer on the show BY FAr! Go ahead and be a fucking idiot … Say she sucked, say "I'm a musician and I know"… Well lemme tell you something, you immature haters- I am a musician too, have been for years and Haley was the best BY FAR.
    She has range, soul, can sing any genre… She was the best.
    And CUT THE SHIT about her being arrogant or a bitch! I met her the other week in New Orleans and she was an absolute doll! Talked to me forever! Both her and Casey! They were awesome and hilarious!

    Re: TyraRay` – thankyou!. all these idiots on here are saying oh im a musician and she was terrible. yea well im a musician to and i say she was the best idol has ever seen.

  31. 31

    I'm so glad!! she definitely deserves it. And I'm so tired of reading all the unlogical haters comments saying she "sucks" or she's "gonna flop", you guys DO realize she sold more on itunes than anyone, more views on youtube on idol HISTORY in short time, and got a bunch of support from MANY many celebrities..You may not like her, but face the facts.
