American Idol 11’s Haley Johnsen – New Arrangement of “Sweet Dreams” – (VIDEO)

American Idol 11 top 24 contestant, Haley Johnsen, did not make the Top 13, in no small part to a performance of the Eurythmics “Sweet Dreams” that frequently went out of tune. Randy Jackson called her performance “trainwrecky” and Jimmy Iovine labeled her style as “robotic mimicking.”

With redemption in mind, I would imagine, Haley has posted the version of “Sweet Dreams” she would have liked to perform on Idol. The recorded version here is fantastic. But I’m not sure a different arrangement would have solved her tuning issues. That being said, there’s no doubt that Haley can sing.
