Music: Baby, It's Cold Outside - Haley Reinhart and Casey Abrams


Pia Toscano, Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina and James Durbin got to release something after American Idol. Now, it's Haley Reinhart and Casey Abrams turn with this cute little homage to a holiday classic, Baby It's Cold Outside, which will be available on iTunes for download on November 21, 2011. 

Now, while I found their duet of Moanin' on American Idol incredibly phenomenal, this one is a bit lackluster in comparison. True, Haley still sounds gorgeous on this recording with such a rich and textured voice and Casey shows an uncharacteristic restraint beyond anything I saw on the show. Together though, the duet seemed disjointed.

I think Casey's voice sounds WAY too high on this that it didn't provide quite the right counterpoint to Haley's voice. This also ruined the seductive quality the song needed to actually work. It should have more sizzle, but it was kind of sterile. It's still cute though and I can't wait to have the full version of the song. All I'm saying is that this could've been better, but who am I to complain? At least I have something from them after Idol right? Enjoy!

I think the Glee version is better than this one. The Blaine/Kurt duet is proably my favorite Xmas song! Now if they would just do Carol of the Bells...

I agree about Casey being too high but I'm still in love with this. Haley definitely oozes with talent. The video is gonna be pretty adorable from the clips I've been seeing. Can't wait till Haley releases original music.

Wow Casey was sucking on helium before this recording. He doesnt sound good up high. He should have been an octave lower and growling.
