American Idol Alum Haley Reinhart Rooting for Jessica Sanchez

American Idol Season 10 alum Haley Reinhart recently gave her two cents on this year’s Top 2 finalists as they prepare to go head-to-head in this week’s Grand Finale.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter at a benefit concert in NYC for the non-profit organization She’s The First, Haley said that she respects Phillip Phillips’ “sense of self” and wishes him well when he faces major surgery after this week’s finale.

She also says that while she wishes Phillip well with his ongoing health issues, she’s been blown away by his opponent Jessica Sanchez all season long. Said Haley of the pint-sized singer, “She's definitely a powerhouse, and she's only 16. It's kind of crazy.” She even went as far as to say she’s “been rooting for that girl since day one.”

We wish we could be as decisive as Haley!
