Haley Reinhart, Siobhan Magnus – Cherry Blossom Parade (VIDEO)

Yesterday, the flowers were in bloom in Washington DC for the annual Cherry Blossom Festival Parade, featuring TWO Idol alums.

Season 10 Idol, Haley Reinhart, sang her new single “Free” from high atop a parade float, and Season 9 alum, Siobhan Magnus sang Patti Labelle’s “Are You Ready For a Miracle” with The Praise and Glory Tabernacle Gospel Choir (I was NOT expecting that!)

Check out both performances below

    Idk about the guys on stilts, but Haley was great! The livestream completely cut off Haley so I’m so happy to finally watch her. Love the straight hair too! Siobhan was great too!

    Both Siobhan and Haley sounded great.  Siobhan has such a powerhouse voice and so much energy.  I think she is one of the best female singers ever to come off Idol.  Of course, as a stylist, Haley is in a class by herself.  Just love her to death!
    Idol should be proud of both these hard working young women.

    Wowza! Siobhan. Man, oh, man. That was an incredible vocal. 

    Haley’s subtle artistry and Free’s message doesn’t really fit with men in stilts and Katie Couric.

    Love me some Hales.  As May 22 approaches I feel myself growing quite overjoyed.  I cannot get enough.

    Commented on the other thread – I really appreciate the video of Siobhan, always interested in what she’s doing. Although the Gospel style song was unexpected – she did a great job with it. This Cherry Blossom Festival looks like it was a kick – many different styles of performers mixed together for a fun day. Good to see Idols I enjoy enjoying themselves there!

    What spoiled Sioban’s performance for me was the outfit she wore.  It wasn’t appropriate for the song and she looked like she just got out of bed.

    Siobhan was incredible on that performance, WOW. Haley was good also, but the music was to low compared to the singing.

    Siobahn was a surprise.  Great voice, but please get a stylist!

    These two need a duet!!!!! House of the rising sun!

    I didn’t watch season 9. How high did this girl finish?
    What a set of pipes! This song was stupid, but I bet she could really rock out with the right material.

    Haley looks great here. Still don’t like that song either, but she sounded good.

    WOW!  Siobhan looked and sounded FANTASTIC.  I still believe that she will ultimately be the one to shine from Season Nine.  She just oozes talent and passion.

    If you haven’t already, check out the music on her debut album “Moonbaby”.  It rocks!

    I Can’t wait for Haley album, she did a great job here, i would be preferred a floor performance , but the float was pretty and i actually liked the 
    with men in stilts , very colorful scenery :D and Siobhan was just wow!! , i’m happy to hear about her …… beautiful and powerful interpretation and i agree the outfit was a miss for this specific song, but she looks beautiful and the chorus was a great touch. This two girls along with Crystal are my favorites females idols after all this years. :)

    Okay, I have a question here…it might sound stupid but was Haley lip syncing?  Because where does the music come from on a float like this with no band?  I’m just curious.

     She was singing to a backing track. The crowd actually applauds before she’s finished, she sings the last line in subdued fashion then says “Thank You.”
