Kirstin Says: Was Pia Toscano's Elimination The Most Shocking In 'American Idol' History?

Fri, April 8, 2011 4:24am EST by 40 Comments

With two-to-one odds to win the entire competition, Pia Toscano was considered a fan favorite — so what went wrong?

She was arguably the most attractive, most talented and most diverse contestant on American Idol this season, but in the most shocking results show in the the series’ history, Pia Toscano was eliminated April 7. I couldn’t believe it — and neither could anyone else.

My betting friends tell me Pia, 22, had two-to-one odds to WIN the entire competition and something like 300-to-one odds of getting the boot this week. In other words, this elimination was completely out of the blue — or was it?

Although I always appreciated Pia’s vocal talent, I found her to be boring and lackluster. She’s beautiful, but one-dimensional. She wasn’t my personal favorite and I wouldn’t have picked her to go higher than the final four or five. That said, I was SHOCKED when Ryan Seacrest sent her home. I can’t put my finger on exactly what happened.

Were you as surprised as I was by the results? Did Pia deserve to go home? Do you think the judges are bummed they used their one save of the season on Casey Abrams? Sound off below!

No…not really. I will be shock if that James Durbin will be voted off. I’ve heard a lot of Pias voice and better voices…But I seldom see one like James Durbin’s caliber…so it’s not really shocking. She will have to go anyway…My top 3 will be James Durbin, Casey & Jacob Lusk.
Peace. Just my 2 cents. But…she is pretty though.:)

As per Randy, Thia is boring. Pia is not. They both mostly sing ballads. Randy didn’t see it maybe because of their faces. But maybe America sees the other side of it. Now, Randy gets a taste of his misjudgements.

american idol got what they asked for. the text votes are from mostly teen girls that are in control of the disfunctional music industry right now. they promote these disney types all gimmick very little talent while real talented singers like charice are having a harder time breaking in how absurd. the texting is revenue so donot expect the absurdity to end soon. so the judges can be surprised and angry but these kids with their cellphones make a mockery of real talent.its all about the money
