Pia Toscano seems surprised by “American Idol” vote-off; Jennifer Lopez cries
By Kim Palacios
hollywoodnews.com: Could “American Idol” contestant Pia Toscano have been overconfident in her position? From the look on her face, her elimination came as the biggest surprise to the singer herself.
Jacob Lusk and Stefano Langone joined Toscano in the bottom three; though it was the chanteuse’s first time in the hot seat, she didn’t make the cut. The singer was near tears when asked to sing her final song, “I’ll Stand By You” and broke down completely after the closing bars.
“I have no idea what just happened here,” said a tearful Jennifer Lopez. “I’m shocked. I’m angry. I don’t even know what to say.” Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler both echoed Lopez’s sentiments, with Tyler calling America’s “lack of passion…unforgivable”.
Yet, statistically speaking, it is no surprise that Toscano did not make it to the top 8. Historically, men have outperformed women in the top 10, and contestants from the American south have overwhelmingly won.
