Pia Toscano booted off “American Idol”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: In a shocking turn of events, Pia Toscano was sent packing from the current season of “American Idol” Thursday night.

Think the judges were disappointed that they’d already used their save on Casey? They sure looked it last night as Ryan Seacrest read Toscano’s name.

The host likely knew what was coming, announcing at the top of the program that there might be a “shocking” result. But no one coul have predicted that Pia – who sings like a seasoned professional week after week – would be sent home so early.

THR has a few theories this morning as to why Toscano was voted off. They include “Girls don’t like girls” and “The producers deemed it so.”

I think it’s simpler than that. Pia crushed the competition when she sang power ballads. This was the first week she listened to the judges and tried an up-tempo number. And look where it got her. Back home, sitting on the couch and watching the competition from a distance. Like the rest of us.
