The genuinely sweet musical stylings of Haley Reinhart — yes, genuinely… hear that, Victoria Huggins? — impressed the American Idol judges during this week’s Milwaukee auditions. Girl showed some staggering technical chops, but also a slight lack of vocal control that had the judges wondering about her viability as an Idol contestant.

We think Haley will do much better in later rounds. And just why do we think this? Because we just viewed this homemade, pre-Idol performance of Corrine Bailey Rae’s “Like a Star” by Haley, and wow… This girl has got it.
