Haley Reinhart apparently didn’t even come close to being one of the two finalists of Season 10 on American Idol.
Producer Nigel Lythgoe tweeted that Reinhart had garnered over 25 million votes, without giving hte exact number.
If she did receive 25 million votes that would leave a total of 70 million votes divided by Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina.
Even if those votes were divided equally that would give McCreery and Alaina 35 million votes each, so Reinhart would be 10 million votes behind the leading vote-getter.
She could be even further behind if the leader picked up a lot more votes than the 35 million votes.
At least Reinhart knows that she is still the third place finisher in Season 10 but in no way was she a threat to win it all.
She was my personal favorite since I like the kind of music she sings except for the more current songs she sang this season. Her music has a bluesy feel that should sell well, but doubt that she will sell in the multi millions like Scotty McCreery might do.
Jimmy Iovine of Interscope-Geffen-A&M played a song for Lythgoe that might be on Reinhart’s debut album.
Something tells me we haven’t heard the last from Haley Reinhart.
