Haley Reinhart has inked a recording deal.

Interscope Records has announced it has signed a recording contract with the tenth-season American Idol finalist.

"I've always dreamed of getting this kind of recognition," Reinhart, a 20-year-old from Wheeling, IL, said in a statement. "I am very thankful to 19 and Interscope for giving me this opportunity to create my own music."

Reinhart, who was the only contestant during her American Idol season to reach over one million views on three of her performance videos on Youtube, finished this year's Idol competition in third place after she received the fewest home viewer votes following a May 19 performance show.

Reinhart is the fourth tenth-season American Idol finalist to sign a recording contract with Interscope, following in the footsteps of winner Scotty McCreery, runner-up Lauren Alaina, and ninth-place finisher Pia Toscano -- who had widely been considered the favorite to win Idol's title.

Toscano's record deal was announced earlier this month, but reports that she had already landed a contract first surfaced only a day after her American Idol ouster.  Both Toscano and Interscope -- which replaced Sony Music as Idol's recording label partner as part of the show's tenth-season shakeup -- had subsequently denied the reports.
