Pia Toscano told HollywoodLife.com why she’s pulling for 16-year-old Jessica Sanchez to beat Phillip Phillips on ‘American Idol’ tomorrow night!
Girls have to stick together — especially on American Idol. Not since Jordin Sparks took the title in season six has a female singer won the competition, which is why former contestant Pia Toscano is pulling for Jessica Sanchez to win season 11.
“I want a girl to win!” Pia, 23, told HollywoodLife.com exclusively at the Race To Erase MS event at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Century City, Calif. “A girl hasn’t won in forever! I have been a fan of hers since I first saw her on America’s Got Talent.”
However, Pia isn’t just pulling for Jessica, 16, to win because she’s a chick. She loves her other qualities too.
“I think Jessica has a great chance because she is very relatable and so ahead of her years; I try to watch her and learn somethings from her,” she explained. “She has the whole thing down — from the fashion to the performance to everything, I think she is a very good role model.”
Do you agree with Pia? Should Jessica win American Idol? Sound off below!
