UPDATE: New Haley tidbit from @FOX_Research: The most played-back minute of American Idol S10: 8:52p on 5/11 – Haley’s “I Have Nothing”, 12.7m total DVR viewers Live > L+7
THR: Lauren’s situation aside, there was talk of you singing an original song on Wednesday’s show, as your parents revealed at a concert in Wheeling, IL…
Reinhart: That was going to happen. And then Bono came in and it was taken away.
THR: So you have a single?
Reinhart: Probably not now, but it was an option when I was let go. They had said that it was going to happen, and like everything else in this business, it’s all subject to change. I was excited about it, but then again, I think I’d like to wait and come up with something that’s very me. Everything happens for a reason, so it’s all good.
THR: Are you an Interscope artist now?
Reinhart: No, not as of yet, but there’s time. I’m very, very eager to see what happens.
I can’t see why they can’t release the single anyway? Maybe as promotion for the tour? TPTB truly seem to be flying by the seats of their pants, don’t they?
