The ousted ‘Idol’ hits ‘The Tonight Show’ to belt out some hits!

Although she was kicked off of American Idol on April 7, Pia Toscano has been taking a long victory lap, singing on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno after being offered a record contract!

The 22-year-old rocked the audience on the April 8 show, singing some of her favorites from Idol, including her stunning take on Tina Turner‘s “River Deep – Mountain High.” She also spoke to Jay about her elimination.

“It was definitely hard for me to sing that last song,” she said. “I was definitely a little broken up about it, but it’s a new day, and I’m in a better place now.”

We’re sure she is in a better — and better-PAID — place!
