Haley Reinhart's been in the bottom three twice on American Idol but I've loved her since audition week! I'm glad she was able to reign in more fans the last couple weeks because she has been very underrated in my opinion.
Some of my favorites are her covers of Blue, You've Really Got a Hold on Me and Bennie and the Jets. I've added these tracks (along with some of Casey Abrams) to my Jazz/Blues playlist! I'd love to see both of them do more Billie Holiday and perhaps something by B.B. King and Etta James.

Haley is jazzy and bluesy with a whole lot of soul. Plus, I love her sexy, sophisticated style.
My number one bet, on the other hand, is Casey Abrams. I don't know why this guy even auditioned! I really don't think he needs AI to make it, but it would be awesome if he wins.
It looks like Casey has a better chance of making it to the top, but I'll definitely be among the first to buy Haley's album!
