Among the last 12 females in the 2007 period of American Idol, Haley Scarnato stood right out of the pack in how she fearlessly tackled big tunes from big vocalists: her 1st two tunes in the semifinals were “It’s All RETURNING to Me Right now” and “Queen of the night time,” most widely known as tunes recorded by Celine Dion and Whitney Houston, two from the reigning divas of contemporary pop. Haley didn’t possess any diva attitude on American Idol, though: she was spunky and cheerful, not really unlike Kelly Clarkson. A indigenous of San Antonio, TX, Haley was performing a long time before she auditioned for Idol. She sang in her high-school choir and became a member of a wedding music group when she was 15 years of age. At age 24, she made an appearance on Idol, auditioning in the Tx rounds where she sang Bonnie Raitt’s “I CANNOT Make You Like Me.” Right away, judge Paula Abdul championed Scarnato, assisting to drive her toward the Hollywood rounds. She survived in to the Best 24 semifinals, carrying out “It’s All RETURNING to Me Right now” the 1st week from the display, partially honoring her personal idol, Celine Dion. Following the overall performance, Simon Cowell stated that Scarnato appeared like a “40-year-old” but she survived that week and in to the following, performing “Queen of the night time” the next week so that they can freshen her picture. It didn’t win over Simon, nonetheless it was plenty of to maintain her on another week.
