What in the world just happened last night in American Idol? I just can’t believe that Pia Toscano just got eliminated. I thought all along that she’s one of the contenders to beat for the title.
No one saw this coming, even the judges themselves.Randy clutched his head in disbelief reeling from the shock, as well as the rest of the contestants. J.Lo immediately was teared-up. Steven Tyler as usual let out an expletive-riddled outburst.
“I have no idea what just happened here. I’m shocked, I’m angry, I don’t even know what to say,” said a teary J.Lo. “I’m gutted, you’re one of the best singers in this,” said Randy. “This makes me mad,” he added. He then implored viewers to vote, as no one is safe. Steven echoed the sentiment. “A mistake is one thing, but lack of passion is unforgivable,” said Tyler.
Too bad that these judges used hastily the only SAVE for the season to Casey Abrams when he was eliminated two weeks ago. Otherwise, I’m sure that they would have used it to her who I believe is more deserving to be saved.
Is this show becoming more and more a popularity contest rather than a major singing competition? Season after season, we see talented contestants being sent home after failing to earn the viewers’ votes.
But don’t worry, Pia. With the talent that you have, this won’t be the end of the road for your singing career.Look at Jennifer Hudson and Chris Daughtry. They didn’t win but had a successful career. I’m sure that with your amazing talent, a producer will offer you a record so keep your head up.
