Haley Reinhart Eliminated From American Idol [VIDEO]
Though she put on an impeccable show Wednesday night, America ultimately decided they didn't want to see Haley Reinhart in the next week's finals.
The 20-year-old Wheeling, IL, native was booted from 'American Idol' late Thursday night, leaving Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina to battle it out for the season 10 crown.
"This is the biggest platform any girl -- anybody -- can ask for," Haley said. "And I rocked it out and I had a blast."
"And this is only the beginning," she added. "Thank you all so very much."
Sound off: Did Haley deserve to go home? Or did she deserve a spot in the final two?
I think that even though she didn't make it into the finale, she's still going to get a record deal. With her great stage presence and original sounding voice, I think we'll be hearing more from Haley Reinhart in the next few months. Look for an album release next year!
