Haley Reinhart

After Haley graduated from Wheeling High School in 2009, she went to the Chicago audition for season nine of American Idol, a series she had been watching since season one, when she was 11 years old. She didn’t make the cut, but when season 10 auditions were held in Milwaukee, Haley, now a student at Harper College in Palatine, IL, made a last-minute decision to try out a second time. Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez sent her through to Hollywood week, where she impressed the judges to qualify for the top 24. From there Haley survived elimination every week, ultimately receiving millions of votes from fans, landing her in the season’s top three. 

After the sensational season finale, where she sang a duet with legend Tony Bennett, Haley spent the summer on the road as part of the “American Idols Live!” tour, playing to arena-sized crowds all over the United States as well as Toronto and the Philippines. An EP of songs she performed onAmerican Idol debuted on the Billboard 200 album chart. Haley then made news during the summer by signing to Interscope Records. Her album, Listen Up, debuts four days after GIRLS WHO ROCK!
