American Idol’s Haley Reinhart Stumbles Over Famous Jackson 5 Lyrics (VIDEO)
American Idol Season 10 alum Haley Reinhart doesn’t usually have trouble covering famous songs, but during a recent live performance of the well-known Jackson 5 tune “I Want You Back,” she stumbled quite a bit with the lyrics.
As this video from TMZ shows, Haley lost her way with the song early on and consulted her smartphone to little avail.
She was able to laugh off the flub, even as an attendant shouted aloud that she didn’t know the words, and recovered by turning the mic to the crowd and asking for some help.
Forgetting lyrics might be a cardinal sin on the Idol stage, but it’s not the end-all-be-all when it comes to her own shows.
Besides, Haley’s not the only former Season 10 contestant to fumble a live performance this month. Winner Scotty McCreery recently fell off the stage while opening for country star Brad Paisley.
