Very Sad! American Idol Contestant Haley Smith Dies In A Motorcycle Crash 2 Months Before Her 27th Birthday
September 4, 2019
26-year-old Haley Smith first popped up on our screens as one of the hopefuls during the 11th season of American Idol in 2012.
She amazed judges with her rendition of Rufus and Chaka Khan's Tell Me Something Good and got through the audition but didn't make it past the Hollywood round. Steven Tyler was especially impressed by her voice saying she was "out of my era" and that he was "honored" to hear her sing.
