Idol judges, contestants, audience, and EVEN Ryan Seacrest…. in utter shock!
This is definitely an idol first. Don’t underestimate the amount of surprises that this new idol season can bring! American Idol said goodbye to one of its best tonight. Pia Toscano, a contestant viewed as one of the best singers in the competition, left in tears. When Seacrest announced Toscano’s elimination, the audience fought back with loud boos. This meant Stefano Langone was safe… again. Unsurprisingly, the audience weren’t the only ones noticeably upset..
The judges visibly expressed their anger, reported reuters.
“I have no idea what just happened here,” said idol judge Jennifer Lopez. “I’m shocked, I’m angry, I don’t even know what to say.”
Fellow judge Randy Jackson agreed with Lopez, and added, “I’m never really mad on this show, but this makes me mad.”

It’s unfortunate the judges used their wildcard to save another contestant early in the competition. This would have been the perfect save….
Pia Toscano’s performance was flawless lastnight, how did this happen? Obviously, she didn’t get enough votes from America. But, why? Many people are starting to question the legitimacy of the show. Perhaps some voters felt confident enough not to vote because her performance was that good. If this is the case, that’s unfortunate. Seacrest stressed to the audience how crucial voting each week really is. This just goes to show..
What are your thoughts on the elimination?
