The Idols Live Tour, featuring the top 11 contestants from "American Idol" Season 10, kicks off this week at the Maverik Center in West Valley City, Utah, and over the past couple weeks the Idols have been hard at work in a super-secret Los Angeles bunker rehearsing for the big event. Among them are Haley Reinhart, this season's golden-haired dark horse and one of the show's most dynamic and beloved performers.
Getting a chance to chat with Haley at that aforementioned super-secret bunker was a blast; it felt more like a gab session with a good girlfriend than a formal interview, thanks to her spunky spirit. Our between-rehearsal-songs interview was all too brief, but there was still plenty to dish about, including shoes, that rumored single she was supposed to sing on the "Idol" finale but didn't, future album plans, judge criticism, jamming with her awesome rock 'n' roll parents...and a long-lost Haley Family Christmas Album! It's a Christmas miracle!
Check out Haley's adorable interview below, and look hard for Paul McDonald, Naima Adedapo, and Lauren Alaina in the background:
