RE: Two Haley songs cleared to sing on American Idol
I agree "Undone" could be a staple of singing songs for years to come. But it wouldn't seem right without Haley first popularizing it.

"Oh My" does seem like an odd choice to license because it's hard to imagine anyone doing the accentuated/elongated "oh my" as well as Haley. Perhaps that is why she seems to favor it - it's potentially a signature song.

Well.. (smile) .. Haley premiered Lady GaGa's release of "you and I" . Haley did outshine Lady Gaga on it though .. which I suppose is a risk LOL. Oh, in my book she did that to Rolling in the Deep too... I hadn't really actively heard it until Haley sung it and sales too a good leap higher with Haley's additional (incremental) exposure of it.

No sense holding back someone looking good singing one of your songs... especially if it is stuck in the "under-heard" situation as it is now.

I like your points about Oh My... that can really be a Haley Signature song in that it is so distinctly different.

... I'm not 100% terribly impressed with the song Oh My...I like to hear Haley sing it and I do like the new bridge (replacing the rap) a lot (maybe the best part of the song now?) ... it just seems like something very easy to fail miserably at if not done just right
... that song is more about Haley than the song.. other songs on the album that Haley helped write can be covered by far far more singers and have them sound at least decent doing it.. and the song would sound good.

I'm not really that fond of free either.. it can really fall into being grating and boring to me very easily. I certainly havn't enjoyed almost any of the covers fan covers (obviously from idol autditions more people think they can sing than actually can.. but sounds particularly rough with a mediocre voice) I did really like Haley's version done on that talk show (the vibe?) and other very similar accoustic version with just her and knotto . I think its core piano accompanyment (da da dum da da dum) that irritates me.

Undone could be beautiful by so many of the girls with great voices that are enevitably on the show .... while Haley brings more to it, a straightforward ballad/diva version would still sound fine.

Fast songs like hit the ground running can be high risk of elimination weeks so often... but, Hit the ground running does have some room to "run" with ... (things aren' always....)
Tom, I agree with you too. I wish Undone was on that list. I know everyone loves Oh MY, and it does have a unique sound to it, but I personally like Undone more. It seems like lots of people are familiar with Undone from the movie this past summer, and by contestants on AI singing it, could help expose more fans to Haley. It would be good song for American Idol IMO!!Smile

Any Haley song that an Idol Contestant uses on the show would help Haley. Because I don't listen to top 40 radio I had never heard of RITD and knew almost nothing about Adele. It caused me to discover so much more about Adele and actively pursue her music.

From the Radio.com archives: "Haley Reinhart Looks Back On ‘American Idol’"
Quote:As we gear up for a new and rejuvenated season of American Idol this week, we look back on what Season 10 alum Haley Reinhart had to say about her time on the show. While she was certain of her career in music long before she auditioned for the show, she explained that it was American Idol that helped carve her path.

“I have a lot of faith in my destiny and I’ve always really thought that this was in the cards for me and I wasn’t going to stop until I got here, living in a musical household like I did,” she told Radio.com last year at Lollapalooza. “Either way I would like to try whatever it took to get there but American Idol was such an amazing platform and outlet for me and I didn’t know if it would work.”

Haley said even if she never placed on American Idol she would still have tried her best to leave her mark on the music industry.

“At times I brought a lot of classic rock to the plate. The fact that I had a lot of listeners who were digging it is amazing!”

...“Me and [Lady] Gaga were really cool on the show. She had a lot of nice things to say to me when I was on the show and she was rooting for me a lot,” Haley recalled. “We got to do a duet to her song behind-the-scenes and work out ‘You and I.’ I’m looking forward to meeting her again and now I am a fellow labelmate. Hopefully we will cross paths when the time is right and I know it will feel great. She’s wonderful.”

First I've heard of this behind-the-scenes duet with Lady Gaga.

Haley and Gaga should do a jazz duet.

Quote:Oooh I just looked at S12 spoilers. "Undone" is a Hollywood Round 3 choice for at least 2 contestants!

Which had me investigating. I thought he was referring to an article at MJ's, but a google search came up with this thread at IDF, started yesterday under the heading:

AI12 Hollywood Round Details (Songs, Groups, Instruments, Standing Ovations, etc.)
http://idolforums.com/index.php?showtopi...ry25491864

Not sure how valid the listed is or what source....but according to it, In Round 3, apparently these two contestants will be performing "Undone":

Isabel Pasqualone - "Undone" by Haley Reinhart
Shelby Tweten - "Undone" by Haley Reinhart

Shelby entered last year as a 17 yr old. She suffers from being Bi Polar, and I believe Himm2 was behind her last year too
