'American Idol': Haley Reinhart Shines on Adele's 'Rolling in the Deep' (VIDEO)

It's a huge gamble on 'American Idol' (Wed., 8PM ET on FOX) to tackle a contemporary hit. Add to that a singer as stylized as Adele and you have the potential for a huge disaster. How do you not compare the contestant to the original, and usually find them lacking?
Haley Reinhart took the risk on Adele's 'Rolling in the Deep,' but she needn't have worried, She not only did Adele proud on it, but she brought enough of her own flare to it that it could have been a hit all over again under her name.
"What I'm looking for now is not only who's going to win and who's going to take this," Randy Jackson said. "What direction are you going to go in as an artist? ... All of these fans and people that are voting for you, hopefully they continue with you after the show. And I think that you chose a perfect direction for you."
