Listen Up! And Watch! Haley Reinhart Performs at Yahoo!

American Idol, The Day After: Top 3 Results Dish with Special Guest Naima Adedapo

Season 10 "American Idol" goddess of the growl, the fabulous Miss Haley Reinhart, recently came by Yahoo! Music to perform two songs from the aptly titled Listen Up!--her lushly retromodern debut album (think Amy Winehouse, Duffy, Nicole Atkins, Joss Stone) that is the perfect combination of sass and class.

Check out her performances below, and once again marvel at the fact that this girl only made it to third place...

Haley also reclined like a perfect '50s pinup on one of Yahoo!'s famous purple stools for a bit, to chat with me about her glamour-gal retro look and sound, the stories behind some of her songs, her musical family, and her advice for Season 11's "Idol" finalists. The only thing missing from this footage? A "Rhiannon"-style wind machine to blow through Haley's curly locks. Maybe we'll rent one the next time she comes back!
