Whether you liked the performance or not, there is no denying Haley Reinhart took a big risk for the contemporary song in “American Idol’s” Top 5 theme of “Now and Then.” She chose an unreleased Lady Gaga song called “You and I” (Gaga performs it in concert and it’s on “Born This Way,” but it hasn’t been released a single.

We thought it was a great choice. It really showed off Haley’s voice and we think it’s cool she chose to go with a lesser-known Gaga song. The judges, at least J.Lo and Randy, did not agree. Tyler was the only one who thought she did a great job and applauded her choice.

What did you think, “Idol” fans? Is Haley in danger after taking such a risk? And what did you think of the song itself? Did you like it? Also, how did it compare to her second song?
