American Idol's Haley Reinhart Sings "Piece of My Heart" at Her Final 3 Homecoming

American Idol Season 10's 'The Girl Who Growls' Haley Reinhart sings "Piece of My Heart" by Janis Joplin at her Final 3 Homecoming. With her mom on the tambourine and backing vocals, and her dad on the guitar, Haley sings at her Arlington Park, Illinois show.

Idol judge and Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler stated his intent to "find a Janis Joplin for this era" at the start of the Idol season. Throughout the season, Steven has compared Haley's growl and rasp to his beloved Janis.

Janis Joplin rose to prominence in the late 1960s as the lead singer of Big Brother and the Holding Company and later as a solo artist.

Big Brother's second album, Cheap Thrills, gave the band a breakthrough hit single, "Piece of My Heart". This song, which was to become one of Janis' signature songs, reached the number one spot on the Billboard charts eight weeks after its release, remaining for eight (nonconsecutive) weeks. The album was certified gold at release and sold over a million copies in the first month of its release.
