She liked Beck (more specifically his hair), and this is what started the rivalry between herself and Jade. She seems to be a fan of Ginger Fox, because she and her friend, Tara, performed two songs by her. Hayley and Tara were easily defeated when Tori performed her new song, Freak the Freak Out, under the disguise of Louise Nordoff, and was forced to "Babysit" Trina, who had recently gotten her wisdom teeth removed. It can be assumed that she thought she still had a chance at winning because she said, "The crowd hasn't voted yet.".
It is unknown whether she really loves her father or just likes him because he always lets her win at Karaoke Dokie.
