Thia Megia, Naima Adedapo and Haley Reinhart – Pre-Idol Music

Check out these pre-Idol performances from a few American Idol 10 Milwaukee audition hopefuls.

Naima Adedapo was the big-voiced singer who worked cleaning toilets and such at Milwaukee’s  Summerfest.  She has  a  MySpace and a Facebook. After the jump, watch a two-part interview posted on you tube by a relative. It could be her dad?

Thia Megia is the closest thing we’ve got this year to a “ringer”.  She was a contestant on America’s Got Talent in 2009, has performed with David Foster and sung the National Anthem for big sporting events. Watch the Thia do her thing at various ages after the jump.  She’s got a You Tube channel HERE. (Check out her cover of Radiohead’s “Creep”)

Haley Reinhart is another big voiced teen, but has more of a rock vibe than Thia. She’s got a  Facebook and MySpace. After the jump, Haley recites POETRY and sings a cover of “Like a Star”

    Haley bears a slight resemblance to Camile Velasco.

    I’m looking forward to seeing a bit more of Naima and Thia. Both are pretty intriguing so far.

    I’m legitimately excited for Haley, I’ve warmed up to her since the spoilers and think she has one of the best potential out of the girls.
    Naima is interesting but I’m not sure her voice is distinctive enough.
    Thia is very rehearsed and I’m worried that Idol voters will not be behind someone as pageanty, a la Katie Stevens or Diana Degarmo.

    I don’t get the love for Haley. Last night my family thought she had one of the worst voices of those who got through. The rock thing sounded put on and weird, and here her voice just sounds breathy.I like Thia the best of these three, and I loved Diana Degarmo and voted for her every week, so if there is another Diana this season I think that would greatly enhance the show.

    i love hailey, and thia’s good too

    I liked Naima, I thought Thia should’ve been way better considerering how much she’s been pimped by some on this blog (she was ok, no more than that) and I thought Haley was WAY too much about unnecessary vocal runs.
